This project is basically a body motion detection project. Initially we have to integrate our PC with Kinect Sensor along with all drivers required for Kinect Sensor. Kinect Sensor is the main hardware requirement in this project. Kinect is having RGB sensor, Accelerometer sensor H-D camera through with it can be able to detect body motion. After finishing all hardware setup we have to do Lab-VIEW programming by which we have to assign 36 points on the human body. These 36 points on the body are to be detected by Kinect Sensor. So when a person is doing body movements during yoga Kinect Sensor will detect these 36 assigned body points and tell whether he is doing yoga in a correct manner or not, if he is doing yoga in correct manner then Kinect Sensor will give instruction to move to the next move otherwise it will instruction to correct and repeat the move.

The proposed system of bottling plant will be integrated with computer based systems through The Internet of Things which allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure. The conveyer belt system will run using hydraulics for the movement from one stage to another. Different operations like washing, filling and packing will be done on bottles. The embedding System will be used for driving motors and microcontrollers. Different sensors will create the logics for functioning of microcontrollers. The working of complete process is event driven rather than being time driven and this task is achieved through LabVIEW Programming. The idea is fresh so it is patentable and innovative, the consultancy can be provided.

In our project we will create a fault locating system for a single phase line. The fault locater or transmitting unit is placed on different areas. This transmitting unit consists of microcontroller, current and voltage transformer. In normal condition it sends the information like recorded fault current values to the system. In abnormal condition it sends the information like recorded fault current or over current value and area code to the substation unit. In substation unit it receives the information and sends to LabVIEW. It gives the geographical information about fault and its type and sends the sms to serviceman of that area to clear the fault.

LabVIEW program is developed to acquire and analyze signals received from a non-intrusive partial discharge measurement. The PD measurement system is followed by Digital storage oscilloscope and LabVIEW. The basic idea is to generate signals from LabVIEW and store the acquired signals so that they can be utilised for analysis. The main advantage is that we can acquire live data from the PD setup and can make necessary changes in the program whenever required. Partial discharge produces characteristic patterns for an insulation system. These patterns can be studied and explained on the basis of mathematical models using various softwares. In addition, PD increases with the increase of applied voltage inside the solid insulation. In this study efforts have been made to investigate the PD magnitude, number of PDs and other PD related parameters like amplitude and phase. The most important thing is to have necessary drivers which support LabVIEW with the required DSO model so that it becomes easy to acquire data from DSO in to LabVIEW.

The demand for energy is increasing as a result of the growth in both population and industrial development. To improve the energy efficiency, consumers need to be more aware of their energy consumption. In recent years, utilities have started developing new electric energy meters which are known as smart meters. A smart meter is a digital energy meter that measures the consumption of electrical energy and provides other additional information as compared to the traditional energy meter. The aim is to provide the consumer and supplier an easy way to monitor the energy. Smart meters are considered a key component of the smart grid as these will allow more interactivity between the consumers and the provider. Smart meters will enable two-way and real-time communication between the consumers and the provider.

Pulse Detonation Engines (PDEs) are new concept propulsion systems that utilize repetitive detonations to produce thrust or power. Pulse Detonation engines offer the potential to provide increased performance while simultaneously reducing the engine weight, cost and complexity relative to conventional propulsion systems currently in service. The engine operates on pulses, so controllers could dial in the frequency of the detonation in the "digital" engine to determine thrust. Pulse detonation rocket engines operate by injecting propellants into long cylinders that are open on one end and closed on the other. When gas fills a cylinder, an igniter such as a spark plug is activated. Fuel begins to burn and rapidly transitions to a detonation, or powered shock. The shock wave travels through the cylinder at 10 times the speed of sound, so combustion is completed before the gas has time to expand. The explosive pressure of the detonation pushes the exhaust out the open end of the cylinder, providing thrust to the vehicle.

A movement from one place to another seems easy for a normal human. The movement in big industry from one plant to another is difficult. Disabled and old age people needs assistant for movement. Wheel chair also needs some attendant to control the motion. The idea inspired to develop a small and easy to use locomotive device using skate board which is operated by arduino based application and controlled by mobile application via Bluetooth. The skate boards are generally used by teenagers and kids for sports purpose. We are developing a skateboard easy to carry not like big wheelchair and can be used in small places also. The cost is very low in comparison to wheelchair based products. And important can be carried in bus, shopping centers, trains easily.

The mobile application on android is used to control the direction and speed of motors. The signal is send via Bluetooth to arduino microcontroller. Based on programming arduino takes decision to move forward, backward, left or right, or increase speed or stop. The arduino send corresponding signal to motor driver circuit and the device is moved accordingly.

Automation is the most frequently spelled term in the field of electronics. The hunger for automation brought many revolutions in the existing technologies. The application is controlled by some input device which is generally connected with wires. It restricts the motion of user such as during presentations. To giving freedom to user to move while using the application the wireless technology is developed. Gesture based systems provide the natural movement of hands or faces to control the application (hardware or software). Our aim in this project is first to control the computer application via gesture using Bluetooth technology. Secondly we can control hardware such as motors by gesture using the interface devices.

LabVIEW application will be developed of receiving the signal and identify the gesture, take decision based on gesture. Secondly, project will make use of a micro controller, which is programmed, with the help of embedded C instructions. This microcontroller is capable of communicating with transmitter and receiver modules. The accelerometer sensor based sensor detects the tilt and provides the information to the microcontroller (on board computer) and the controller judges whether the instruction is right movement or left movement instruction and controls the direction respectively. The controller is interfaced with two dc motors to control the direction of the locomotive.
