Other Projects
Softcomputing Projects
  • 3-D Sign Language Gesture Recognition and Leap Motion, an aid for the Dumb: The aim of the project is to develop a Gesture Recognition system for practices of human machine interaction. This project would involve the use of a leap motion 3-D control infrared camera to detect hand gestures. These gestures first mapped to the text than to the voice signals. The system is trained with the standard sign language gesture and acts as an automatic voice system for the dumb to recognize the voice form their gestures.
  • TSP using Ant Colony Optimization: The aim of the project is to develop system that solve the travelling salesman problem using Ant colony optimization method where a user has to travel a list of cities and the distance between each pair of cities and come out with the set of approximate solutions which have a polynomial time complexity.

Hopfield neural network is selected as a powerful tool to perform the recognition process.

AI Projects
  • Designing a parking lot: The aim of the project is to get the whole information about the vehicle by detecting and analyzing its license plate using MACHINE LEARNING techniques. With the help of license plate number, we will get information regarding its size like whether it’s a bike, car or heavy truck. According to it, we will assign an available parking slot for the vehicle using STACK data structure. It will produce a slip for parking having name of the vehicle owner from the data collected from license plate, and details like parking fee and parking slot number according to its size, using HASHING data structure.
  • Face Recognition System Using Genetic Algorithm and SVM:The aim of the project is to develop a face recognition system using genetic algorithm and support vector machines and to compare the recognition rates with PCA (Principal Component Analysis) and LDA (Linear Discriminate Analysis) algorithms using available databases.
  • Object Presence Notification (time-based) Algorithm: The aim of the project is to develop an object presence notification (time-based) algorithm that detect certain objects on real-time video stream and generate a notification if they are present for more than specified time.
  • Speed Detection: The aim of the project is to use a deep learning based algorithm that takes a video as an input, processes and gives the list of coordinates of all vehicles and their speed.
  • Text Summarization: Text summarization (TS) is the process of identifying the most salient information in a document or set of related documents and conveying it in less space than the original text. In principle, TS is possible because of the naturally occurring redundancy in text and because important (salient) information is spread unevenly in textual documents. Identifying the redundancy is a challenge that hasn’t been fully resolved yet. Auto-summarization is a technique used to generate summaries of electronic documents.
  • Simulation of Pacman Game: The aim of the project is to simulate Pacman Game. In this game we create a maze with alleys having coins in their way. Player has to collect all the coins in the maze without getting caught by the ghost bot, moves of which are processed using an algorithm..
  • Simulation of Car Parking Game with Android base Mobile: Given a 6x6 grid which is divided into 36 small units, and this grid is made up of 36 small units. We have a car parked in the third row in such a way that it is blocked and cannot come out of the area without moving other cars which are also parked in the grid. The cars can only move in forward or backward direction. Our aim is to make a way for the target car to come out of the grid.
  • Battleship Game: The game is played on four grids, two for each player. The grids are typically square – usually 10×10 – and the individual squares in the grid are identified by letter and number. On one grid the player arranges ships and records the shots by the opponent.
  • Natural Language Processor: It is meant to be interface through which any user without knowing the peculiarities of the system can use it with their understanding and their own language. It can work as a word editor in addition to that if its programing mode is fired up.
  • Simulation of Chinese Checkers Game: A basic strategy is to create or find the longest hopping path that leads closest to home, or immediately into it. Since either player can make use of any hopping 'ladder' or 'chain' created, a more advanced strategy involves hindering an opposing player in addition to helping oneself make jumps across the board.
  • Tower of Hanoi puzzle: This is a web application to solve the puzzle of Tower of Hanoi. The application will provide the user a choice to solve the puzzle for N (N>=3) disks and also if user wants to see the solution then he/she can also see direct solution for a particular N.
