Sight, or visual sensory is undoubtedly the most important source of information that a human requires for mobility and navigation. Without this, humans become passive and dependant on others. The major problems faced by the visually impaired while walking are tackling short distant obstacles, and planning long distance trajectory. Technology today has devised a plethora of short distant obstacles detection systems like the Electronic Travel Aids, but the problem of planning long distances, i.e. keeping up with the intended bath to travel and not deviating from it, still remains unsolved. This project aims to solve this problem using the phenomenon of Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation as a means to subconsciously guide the visually impaired.

In a constantly changing and progressive world where the supply of non-renewable resources such as fossil fuels is at high risk, proper action must be taken for the transportation industry to compensate for such a phenomenon. however the reliance on the hybrid-electric and full-electric automobile model still poses a large carbon footprint. One alternative is to utilize the rotatory movement of the wheels of an automobile to produce enough triboelectric energy to eventually power a vehicle. This research develops and constructs one possible prototype model for such a system and derives its possible current output when used alongside existing 120V and 240V electric car batteries. Although the design succeeds conceptually as a power source, its theoretical outputs will be unable to power an electric vehicle safely. Nevertheless, this research aims to initiate further studies on triboelectric power generation for commercial applications.

The IAD has moisture sensors fitted in it, which would detect the level of moisture in the soil of the field and if it is low according to the crop, then it would act as a trigger and turn the drip irrigation system on, but if the levels are high then it would not turn the system on, thus saving more water than usual. Solar panels attached to it would harness the solar energy and store it in photoelectric cells. If it were cloudy, then the solar energy would not be harnessed. So, an external power source would power everything. The basic principles used are that of drip irrigation and harnessing of solar energy, and combining these with other activities like testing the soil pH, sensing the light in the environment and sensing the temperature.
