What is CIC3?

CIC3 is born out of many things. To have originated from Gujarat it is a platform where the ideas are originated and are incident and integrated in the form of hackers – makers – developers-students. Here not only compilation of ideas but passions are regenerated, shaped and motivated for converting a dream to vision to reality. The motivation source are been delivered by visionaries, industry experts whose experience mentors to perform a shift and uplift those efforts.


The name is centered around the heart of this event i.e. a micro-controller named “Arduino“. If I would be allowed to describe this event cum Hackathon more than I would just say it was MAGNANIMOUS.

A basic stepper motor based laser gun

DSC_7679It moves in respective direction accordingly the human eye moves. In defense industry this type of guns are used by many foreign countries in combat helicopters.Currently India is using this gun for HAL light combat helicopter and HAL dhruv. In real world there are lots of problems for the soldiers to target any object. They have to move the entire gun of 4 to 5 kgs in respective direction in very short duration also they have to target their object precisely so this type of technology can help them to reduce their burden.

Devan: Great experience it was. A long way to go.

Chintan: Learnt something called Arduino.

Vivek: Expecting to extend our concept through Arduino.

Dev: In future we’ll try with image processing techniques.

A 3 dimensional POV display

DSC_7676Two dimensional POV display is often accomplished by means of rapidly moving a single row of LEDs along a linear or circular path. The effect is that the image is perceived as a whole by the viewer as long as the entire path is completed during the visual persistence time of the human eye. A further effect is often to give the illusion of the image floating in mid-air. A 3 dimensional POV display is often constructed using a 2D grid of LEDs which is swept or rotated through a volume.

Chand: An experience to share proudly.

Hardik: A development on a significant scale.

Viren: I didn’t felt as if I am working, I felt as if I am enjoying.

Surveillance system

DSC_7696Our project is based on cop car surveillance system. In which GPS , GSM, Accelerometer, magnetometer are connected to the arduino uno . GPS continuous monitoring the car location and the data taken form the GPS module are used for sending it to control room using the GSM based communication. Here GSM communication is bidirectional. Control room also send the information to the cop car like in which direction it should go for pursuit or where should he go for patrolling . we also use Accelerometer to find the accident condition and send instant message to the nearest hospital.



Arduino mini robot

DSC_7688It is a mini robot with camera system for security purpose. We are going to built a robot that could assist in ensuring security to users. This robot will be capable of capturing audio visual display content using Wifi camera or a web camera which ever is provided. Moreover, as per provided equipments, we will be building a robot with four wheels where there will be used four motors for controlling purpose of security ensuring robot. Robot will be having 6v rechargeable battery which will provide good enough life span for ensuring security kind of far away places. There we are also going to add 9v battery for additional power requirements purpose. All the controls given to the robot will be throught android application interface which would directly connect at arduino through specific ports predefined by user.For motor
driver we will make our own shield using l293 IC. The l293 IC is a dual h bridge IC and works up to a output of 9v.

Tejas: I kept the funda of innovation and it worked beautifully.

Chinmay: Making circuits can indeed break nerves but simultaneously it can provide you the enjoyment.

Social Media notification system

DSC_7682Using speech recognition module connected to arduino user will select gmail or twitter account (trying to include facebook also ). Then python script will get the notification or number of E-mails for selected site. Then we will send this notification to the arduino environment. Then using GSM module, arduino will send the message to the appropriate user (so that user who doesn’t have smartphones or internet access they will also notified if they get new mail or new tweet ). If time remains then we will try to print that notification to LCD.

Kush: Just loved it.

Rinkesh: Awesome Experience…!!!

Dip: Embedding programming with each module was just superb.

Automatic guided vehicle (AGV)

DSC_7686This project is based on graphical interface with a 4 wheel drive bot and a computer, which is done with help of a software called processing and arduino’s main programming software. In this project the motion of the bot is controlled graphically, the instructions from laptop are sent through a zigbee module which is recieved by another zigbee module mounted on the bot, and with the help of this instructions and the ultrasonic sensors mounted on bot, the bot performs the given motion successfully. This project can also be used either way , the bot’s free motion with the help of ultrasonic sensors can be tracked, and using this tracked motion the bot can be made to move in the same tracked path effectively by making changes in the tracked path.The motors are controlled by arduino with the help of ic l293d.serial parallel shifter is used to convert serial data to parallel at transmitting side and like wise to convert data to serial again on recieving side.This shifter is also used to increase digital ports on arduino board.This project can be used in packaging industries which implement automation, the motion of bots used in these industries can be controlled remotely, and hence maintaining the motion grid of these bots. Graphical control makes easy for any user to implement a given motion.

Biometric secure voting system to avoid bogus voting

DSC_7690As we all know that in elections, every-time we are suffering from bogus voting.Bogus voting means one person can vote multiple times. Government provides us all the AADHAR CARD. so the government have all the database of people. so why should we suffer from such problems? so we decided to use this database for security purpose.That’s the reason for the creation of such project.
In this project we use fingerprint scanner to store the fingerprint previously. And then take the fingerprint as a input and compare with the previous one.If matches with the previous one then and then the EVM will enable end person can vote. Otherwise person can’t vote.In this project we require additionally just fingerprint sensor and make secure system for the country.

Umang: Ahaa a good one indeed..!!

Marteen: First Hackathon and it was mind blasting.

Sagar: I am over-whelmed to be a part of this.

Trupt: Satisfied to a greater extent for my willingness to learn.

Gesture based Smart Home automation system

unnamedOur project is to build a smart home automation system, using image processing. A gesture recognition algorithm will be running on our viewing device, where various human hand gestures will be processed, and converted into digital signals as per our own generated algorithms. These digital signals will be wirelessly transmitted to Arduino Uno in packet form where it will be decoded by our running algorithm. All the processes will be running in real time. The acquired data will be decoded and transmitted to the various devices which we wish to control. The user will also have a smart capacitive touch screen which will be working as a switchboard for the operator to control various devices in the house.

Niraj: Everything was perfect but still components were not mentioned properly. I think companies must be invited as a judging panel hence, we can showcase.

Pradeep: Had a great time.

Suhel: Awesome…!!!

Salman: It seems as if I have finished the circle.

Autonomous Vacuum Cleaner

DSC_770612V DC brushless fan will be kept at the front for suction.This fan can very easily suck dust and small bits of paper with 500 rpm motor. The bot will be programmed to cover the entire room. The obstacles coming in the room will be detected by using IR sensors and the available distance in a particular direction will be calculated by mounting an ultra sonic sensor on the servo motor. The servo motor will enable the bot to estimate available space in any direction. Thus, the bot can effectively sweep the entire room.

Jenisha: A satisfying one and an awesome experience.

Preetha: I gained one more chapter in the world of learning.

Rushabh: I have no words to describe the amazing-ness of this platform.

Parth: I never tried my hands over coding but now I am in love with it totally.


Down the line what everyone said sums up to be something which was really awesome. They were provided with the best platforms, great mentors, on hand resources and a friendly environment which is must required to work. Though it was a 36 hour, though it is sounding too huge and too hectic on the first glance but participants faces hardly had that tired-ness on their faces.

Moreover the mentors like Sohil, Arjav , Ishaan and the team as a whole along with the support without which this would not have been a successful event. The organizer-CIC3 (GTU) and L.D. College of Engineering are supposed to be thanked heartily.

The team which made this possible:


A magnanimous and astounding experience.

Hoping to find more and more happenings like these in our city round the corner for sharing more ideas and creativity getting indulged into the same.
