QuEST Global, a global product engineering services company, announced the winners of the 10th annual ‘Ingenium’ competition. Ingenium is an initiative aimed at fostering innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset amongst engineering students. Through Ingenium, QuEST provides a platform for the young talent of India to apply their engineering skills to solve real-world problems. This year’s winners are selected from over 6000 teams and were selected based on the uniqueness of their ideas, application into the real world, demonstrability, and cost-effectiveness.
We are happy to congratulate the P.E.S. Institute of Technology (PESIT), Bengaluru, for their first-place win. PESIT’s Loganyaa Senthil, Niraj Anil Babar, and Rohan Pillai created a software proposition to aid doctors in the early detection of Parkinson’s disease. It not only detects the disease but is also designed to predict the stage of the disease, helping doctors adopt the right course of treatment from an early stage.
Penumudy Tanvi and Vysyaraju Sampath Raju from Bennett University, Noida, and Manikant Amaresh Savadatti and Suryakantha from P.E.S. College of Engineering (PESCE), Mandya are the first and second runners-up respectively. Bennett University students developed solutions intended to effectively reduce the time of image search on the web. The second runners-up utilized artificial intelligence to create an advanced, cost-effective robot that acts as an assistant to primary healthcare providers in hospitals. The robot helps reduce front-line workers’ contact with patients by delivering medicines, basic health monitoring, and delivering audio and video messages.
