The Institution has always maintained a Research Culture and has taken up a number of minor and major research projects. Research publications, Ongoing Research and Consultancy have added to the professional development of the Faculty. Commitment to basic long term research as the foundation for future development is the concern of the Institution. In research, there is progressive sharing of academic knowledge and resources to create new resources. We strive to strengthen further our research programs as well our relationship with industry by supporting our faculty and students to work on sponsored research and industrial projects and consultancy. Faculty and students are encouraged to take up hands on industrial problems as consultancy projects to enrich their problem solving skills.

RESEARCH
Intelligent Data Analytics Platform for a Metro Rail Transport System
Collaborating Institutions
  • Principal Investigator: Fr. Dr. Jaison Paul Mulerikkal CMI, Principal & Professor, Computer Science and Engineering, Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy
  • Co-PIs: Dr. Vinith Rajatlal, Associate Professor, Computer Science and Engineering, Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy
  • Dr. Sminu Izudheen, Assistant Professor, Computer Science and Engineering, Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kochi Mr. Binu A, Assistant Professor, Information Technology, Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kochi
  • Junior Research Fellows: Deepa Merlin Dixon K and Sajanraj T D
  • Funding Agency: Department of Science and Technology, India
  • Total Fund Sanctioned : 24,96,000 Rupees

Through this project, we intend to develop an intelligent data analytical platform for a metro rail transport system integrating its various CPS and other data sources. We keep Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) as a specific use case for this project. This platform will be a middleware with input (data) APIs and output (information) APIs which is built on the top of an HDFS based software stack. The middleware will also implement a set of analytical solutions which are again exposed to the outside world through relevant APIs. Developers can leverage on these input and output APIs to develop internal or external applications. The project will also implement few Proof of Concept (POC) applications to prove the viability of the above middleware with its APIs. This middleware will be generic in nature so that it could be replicated in other Metro Rail systems with minimum modifications and customization.




Driver Centric Safety Evaluation Of Two Lane Rural Highway
Collaborating Institutions
  • Principal Investigator: Dr. Anitha Jacob, Associate Professor, Dept. Of Civil Engineering, Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy
  • Co-PIs: Dr. Jose P. Therattil, Professor and Head, Dept. Of Electronics and Communications Engineering, Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy
  • Ms. Jisha Akkara, Assistant Professor, Dept. Of Civil Engineering, Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy Mr. Jinesh K. J., Assistant Professor, Dept. Of Electronics and Communications Engineering, Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy
  • Funding Agency: Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE), Thiruvananthapuram
  • Project fund : 12.7 Lakhs Rupees

The research work focuses on the effect of geometric design consistency on safety of two lane rural highways, taking into consideration the amount of workload the geometry load up on a driver. In order to calculate the workload on a driver, we are conducting test drives on certain selected study stretches around the college campus. During the test, the drivers should attach the RDDAS (which is a combination of several sensors developed to measure the physiological conditions of drivers) to their body and then drive for a minimum of one hour along the study stretches. While driving, the changes in the physiological conditions of the driver with respect to the road features will be recorded, and is used for the research purposes.
