SSIT focuses on the social implications and ethical issues of new and emerging technologies.A kind of collaboration of IAS chapters with SSIT, could be e.g. involving into the activity of SSIT through forming a joint chapters. Existing IAS SB Chapters may form a joint IAS/SSIT Chapter by submitting a petition with at least three petitioners who should be SSIT members.
UTBM rejoices the creation of its first IEEE IAS student branch. That demonstrates the commitment of our students, including master and doctoral students as well as engineers in the development of industrial and commercial applications of electronic and electrical engineering.
In these areas the theoretical research is a powerful tool to investigate and explore of new solutions. But the proof of the innovation is in the experimentation, in the making of prototype and in the real life demonstration.
IAS thus promotes both theoretical developments and practical realizations. Its objective is the dissemination of knowledge but also to increase the skills, knowledge and expertise of its members.
BRTS- Bus Rapid Transient Service in Ahmedabad was visited by GCET IEEE SB on 20.04.2013 as promotional tour for IAS-Industrial Application Society as well as industrial visit for understanding the basic functioning and working of BRTS.
Total of 75 students participated in the industrial visit which was completely sponsored by GCET IEEE SB as it was first industrial visit under GCET IAS chapter. Soon after reaching the Ahmedabad municipality corporation(AMC),BRTS control centre where we met Mr. Prayag who has throe knowledge of history of Ahmedabad before and after BRTS as well as origin and designing.
Prayag Sir guided us in showing the pictorial representation that depicted the old and new Ahmedabad. Then was the main yet most amazing part of the day each and every student waited for-THE CONTROL ROOM, heart of BRTS where we were showed the perfect combination of technical and operator friendly system showing all the functional route’s of total BRTS plant network i.e. 84km.
It showed the perfect grid of everyday’s individual bus operation through various hierarchical level consisting of the instantaneous speed, bus driver’s name, time delay/advancement, occupancy, the route taken etc. If the bus was behind schedule or travelling at faster speed, the bus operator was penalized on per km basis thus making sure on daily efficient running for the betterment of people of ahmedabad.
Then we left for BRTS workshop at Narol distributed in 300 acre area via BRTS bus from Nehrunagar. There Sir described the basic motto and aim applied in designing of BRTS bus which was of 900 sq feet and 12 meter then the usual buses which is 10 meter long which is the 1st successful, effective BRT and seeing the success rate , the design was adopted by Delhi and Rajkot and thus training experts from various cities in implementation of similar system in their cities. BRTS ahemedabad currently consist of
At BRTS workshop we saw the whole mechanism of washing and repairing of buses which believes in providing healthy and safe environment to the travelers and if the bus is unable to fulfill the required criterion, then the bus operator is penalized.
Soon, we left for AMC HQ and then straightly headed for AKSHARDHAM in Gandhinagar where we learned the life ideologies one should apply in his/her life. Everyone enjoyed and relaxed.
