Guest Lecture on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

ISTE organized a Guest Lecture on “Artificial Intelligence And Robotics” on 6th March 2019 at EEE Department seminar hall(4412). The guest speaker was Mr.Prashant Menghal, Associate Professor, MCEME,Secunderabad.

The session started by commemorating Dr. Prashant Menghal. Sir gave his introduction and started the session by interacting with the students about Artificial Intelligence and its need in today’s society. Dr.Menghal defined Artificial Intelligence in a very new and interesting way which attracted the students very much. He defined AI as the intelligence exhibited by machines that can recognize human speech, object, can learn, plan and explain. Sir explained about the history of Artificial Intelligence, He mentioned that Artificial Intelligence was termed by John McCarthy in 1956, by a famous Dartmouth Conference. Sir explained about the Typing Test Approach in AI. HeHe also explained about the difference between human brain and an AI machine by using simple daily life examples. Then he discussed about how Artificial Intelligence researches are going on and what improvements we can do to the society by using AI.

Dr.Menghal approached the next topic “Machine Learning”. He defined Machine Learning in an innovative way that amazed students. Sir then explained about the types of Machine Learning which are categorized into three Supervised Learning, Unsupervised Learning, Reinforcement Learning. He defined them as shown below
Supervised Learning: It is a type of learning that needs Supervision always, The example that Sir gave us was our professors and students, We always need supervision of our professors in our concerned subjects.
Unsupervised Learning: It is a type of learning that does not require any supervision i.e., this kind of learning is self sufficient .The example that Sir gave us was some students who don’t come to classes and who can study on their own.
Reinforcement Learning: It is a type of learning in which we follow hit and trail method the example given by Sir was quite real he described how students actually follow a pattern of reading important questions before their examinations.

He explained that the Supervised Learning is mostly used in predicting the weather, Unsupervised Learning is used in Banks. Sir then clearly explained us about the limitations of Machine Learning, He explained us that the three dimensional data can’t be handled by ML. He then explained us the difference between Machine Learning and Deep Learning .He gave us an example saying that students need to do Deep Learning i.e., they have to know the subjects that they are studying completely but not Machine Learning i.e., just before exams. Dr.Menghal gave a clear explanation about Deep Learning and how Deep Learning is helpful. He explained about Artificial Neural Networks and also the Applications of Deep Learningthen gave us a glance onto Robotics, He also said that the future era totally depends on Robots, he explained their importance to the students. He concluded his session by playing a video of Robots that were performing all the activities that a human could do. We then had an interaction session where students posed their queries to Dr.Menghal, He explained them to the students with huge interest and enthusiasm.

Our faculty coordinator expressed his gratitude towards Dr.Prashant Menghal . Then our faculty Dr. V. Sridevi Mam and Vijaya Rama Raju Sir presented Dr.Menghal a token of gratitude . Students were contented by the knowledge they gained during the session. They have got an idea about Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.

Industrial Visit to NRSC

ISTE has taken students of ECE and EEE of 3rd year on an innovative and ingenious industrial trip to NRSC (National Remote Sensing Cell), Shadnagar on the occasion of National Science Day on 1st March 2019. The NRSC is running Vikram Sarabhai Centenary programme which includes space related academic and research programmes. This programme offered a new opening and an opportunity for youngsters to explore a new career and research option

After a long journey of 2 hours from our college, we entered NRSC at 11:30am, they took us to an auditorium where a quiz was conducted on Vikram Sarabhai’s achievements at NRSC-ISRO. They also played a video on Vikram Sarabhai’s life history and NRSC’s establishment and its accomplishments. Then, we were headed to an auditorium where the images of different geographical areas were displayed and they’ve explained how these images help in different situations like planning a city, finding shortest path to the safest places during natural calamities. They demonstrated the monitoring of satellites and the measures they take to avoid collisions between two satellites revolving round the earth.

Later, we were made to explore the outdoors of NRSC-ISRO where antennas and solar panels were located. They illustrated the functioning of antennas and solar panels and cleared all our doubts regarding satellites launching, antennas movement, solar panels working and etc.

These are few points we have inferred from the videos they have displayed and the points they have deciphered :-
The NRSC was first established at Hyderabad in 1974.
The satellite ground station was first set up in 1979-1980.
NRSC provides satellite and area data services in India.
It launched 12 Indian and 7 foreign satellites in a span of 30 years from 1988-2018.
NRSC has 2.7 metre compact antenna system.
The information on surroundings is first captured through cameras, which in the form of electromagnetic radiations are sent to the antenna.
The registered information is then stored in the computer memory.
Remote sensing deals with space technologies and monitoring remote areas for detection of any calamities.
Remote sensing involves geographical mapping that incorporates all the engineering branches and disciplines.
NRSC has 4 antenna systems stationed track four different satellites.
ISRB-ISRO satellites recruitment board is an exam for the students of ECE and EEE departments to get into for NRSC.
NRSC antenna is 7.5 m in diameter.
An antenna has 3 basic elements and they are:
The mechanical element has 2 axes- Aximuth and Elevation. It also contains a hyperbolic reflector which collects the info and converts it into electrical signals. Information is generally obtained through IRS(Indian remote sensing) satellites, which are connected control room in a fibre optics.
An optical encoder is also present which sends signals based on the position angle. The reference angle is generally considered at 0 degree north.
Serve consists of 2 metres for axis.
We require 2 metres to avoid the damping effect.
Auto-tracking mechanism in antennas is based on the Reference Angle which tracks the signals of the satellites.

Solar panels:- NRSC demand of energy – 17000AW but only gets 300AW.
Each solar panel generates 30 volts, whereas the requirement is 700 volts. Hence, panels are connected to fill this necessity. 20 panels approximately are connected which is called a string.
Solar panels can be of two kinds.
On grid- solar energy is generated only in presence of light.
Off grid- solar energy is generated in the absence of light too.
There are 2 types of powers- reactive and active. We use capacitor banks for reactive power generation.
1 inverter includes 4 strings. Input consists of 8 cables and output consists of 1 cable.
Disadvantage of series connection is if one panel is damaged, the energy is not generated further.
Hotspots are generated in solar panels due to shadows. In order to protect them from the hotspots, diodes are connected in series.


NRSC team has been very cooperative in helping the students, explaining them the various advancement in technologies and career opportunities in the organisation. Students were very enthusiastic in listening to everything that happens in a remote sensing centre. The feedback we got from the students was very positive and they also wanted to participate in these kind of visits.



Individual commitment to a group effort-
that is what makes a team work,
a company work, a society work,
a civilization work.
