    ...IoT can make our life easy. One of the applications is Smart city which is increasing curiosity among world’s population, which I will be talking about in this blog. A smart city includes smart surveillance for many things. It is built by creating a network of people and related information. The main aim is to optimize the resources like environment and economy for promoting sustainable development. The streets in the city needs to be connected for implementing IoT. Why streets? It is to automate transportation for saving lots of efforts in daily chores. How this can be done??? Well, for this, one can use sensors in street lights which can receive and send information about transportation. When a person/vehicle is passing through the road during night, the lights only in the area where the object is presently moving can be lit and dimmed as soon as the user moves away. ...

    ...Being an engineering student, a professor in an engineering university and a parent, I appreciate films like ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and ‘Dangal’, amongst many more, for successfully showing us very important and critical viewpoints from various perspectives in education. The film, ‘3 Idiots’, made parents realise that they should let their children choose the stream of their own interest instead of forcing them to join engineering or other streams of high repute. This is highly appreciated by all students. But being an educator, we find it really difficult to persuade them at the point they are with us in an engineering college. Their mood or enthusiasm for studying suffers when they quote: ‘We are forced by our parents to be an engineer’. Then they need to be convinced that this statement does not hold valid if used as an excuse to escape work at college/university. Since they have chosen engineering as a career, they need to follow the second and more important advice for students in the film i.e. ...
