These are some of the products that I guided in 2015.
We developed this website for a very noble cause. We found that often there are extra food (not leftovers) available to party organizers, hostel messes, conferences, and even in buffets in hotels. These foods are often thrown in the dustbins or given to animals. In countries like India, there are lot of people who do not get a two square meal. We setup a system in which one can send an SMS or call a volunteer (one of the student of this project), who would send a person (we fixed a person who have a two wheeler and an autowala for large amount of food) to the venue. This person would collect food and give it to a charitable organization for poor. Due to various official restrictions and potential issues that can come up later, we have linked only with charitable organizations and do not support beggars. We signed MOU with these organizations. This initiative is also supported by ENACTUS, IIT Ropar.

This is a model of a very innovative idea to save power. It uses sensors to identify an approaching car and then it lights the lights on the road in front of it. The innovation is that it increases the intensity of the lights of the street.
