1) Cell Phone Based Distant Object Control
Platform: Circuit Board
In this project a remote-controlled car was built that can be controlled using DTMF tones of a cellphone. Since cell phone reception has a global coverage, the RC car can be controlled from any where in the world.
This was built for a project competition and has won first prize in the National Symposium “COMPSEM-09” organized by Annamalai University in year 2009.
2) Visual Speech Synthesis
Platform: Visual C++
In this project, a software was implemented to convert an input text into an audiovisual speech stream and play it incorporating the head and eye movements of a human being in real-time. Instead of relying on existing speech engines (like Festival), a new engine is created which resolves ambiguities in English language properly and has an Indian accent.
IPwatch maintains a database (sqlite3) of IP address that are assigned to MAC addresses and informs sysadmins (and optionally users) of any misuse of IP in a network.
4) Steganography Removal
The project deals with creation of a tool which removes steganographic content from a file. The idea is to implement the tool in corporate environment’s mail server, where every outgoing e-mail is first sent to this tool.
