METRO Electronics Gala '14
It gives us immense pleasure to announce that the FYP students of EE Department have won the First as well as Second Prize in the Engineering Project Competition at Young Innovators Pakistan 2014, METRO Electronics Gala. More than 30 teams from renowned engineering schools competed in this event. After rigorous screening procedure, only nine teams with innovative project ideas made it to the final round.
WINNERS(Cash Prize: PKR 100,000/-)
Title: Delta 3D Printer: An additive manufacturing machine
Description: The 3 dimensional printer is a rapid prototyping machine that takes the 3D computer-aided-design model from a computer software and makes the plastic replica of the object, using the fused filament fabrication technology. The Delta (parallel-robotics) mechanism efficiently reduces the mechanical complexity as compared to the primitive 3D printer designs that employ Cartesian mechanisms. Delta 3D printer can not only be used in the industries for mass production of objects, but also in every home for printing objects that are needed daily, within few minutes. This method is extremely economical than the existing techniques of injection moulding.

Title: Field Assistive Wearable Interfaces for Visually Impaired
Description: The project aims to develop low-cost wearable interfaces to assist the visually impaired (blind & deaf-blind) people in the areas of education, communication/ social interaction, information transmission, navigation and mobility guidance. The interfaces use the concept of vibro-tactile haptics effectively integrated with Braille-code to accomplish the above mentioned tasks.
