Department Of Computer Science and IT
CSE and IT department labs have more than 700 nodes and state of the art IT-infrastructure. These nodes are running on the Windows 2000/Windows XP/Linux platform and are equipped with state of art software. The hardware devices and software are used for both teaching as well as research activities. The department provides adequate hardware facility for building microcontroller based systems and for doing projects in the areas of robotics, augmented reality and human computer interactions as well, at both the campuses. The labs are also equipped with a variety of Multimedia devices and software to provide support for Multimedia based 3D and Image Processing Projects.
Some of the important equipments present in the labs include Arduino Duemilanove development board (with 8-bit ATmega168) with various sensors, actuator and Communication aids (Bluetooth, Ethernet, Serial, Wi-Fi and Wireless using Zigbee) to carry out research in the area of Automation. We are also equipped with Audio (Piezo Vibration, tone generation and voice synthesis), Visual (LED, Camera and LCD), Touch (Capacitive Sensing, Resistive Sensing), Environmental sensors (Humidity, Temperature, Gas sensors), Light Sensors (IR and LDR), Location (GPS), Motion ( 3 Axis Accelero Meter), RFID tag readers, Actuators like motors (Full rotation and Half rotation servo motors), KEIL Development Tools (ESA MCB x51, ESA MCB 2100 & KEIL Software), Microsoft Kinect device, and EMOTIVE EPOC EEG NeuroHeadset with Education Edition SDK kit. Use of open source software is highly encouraged for teaching and research. For example, NS2 simulator is used for research in the field of wired as well as wireless computer networks, routing algorithms, protocols, performance evaluations etc. We also have tools like Mathematica 5.2, etc.
