What has been done at the lab scale

Device Prototype

  • A open hardare has been developed using which will make real time monitoring of water quality possible

  • This device uses drop-down kinetics of spions (iron nanoparticles) in presence and absence of magnetic field.

The design objective :IOT based Universal Water Sensor

  • We propose to develop a low-cost universal hardware for acquisition data from low level sensor/transducer that sends it to cloud
  • Stand-alone memory for time series representation, data analytics, data visualization and final element control. will be also provided

What the device would perform

  • This device is ready to sense data from chemical , bio-chemical substance and the device can be connected with Wify, acquire data, decision making based on this data
  • While water is the present target the application can be extrapolated to other fields.

#ym<-(ym-min(ym))/(max(ym)-min(ym))

par(mfrow=c(1,2))
plot(x,log(y/y[1]),col="green",type="l",xlab="",ylab="")
points(xm,log(ym/ym[1]),col="red",type="l",xlab="",ylab="")
title(main=" SPION Drop Down \nDynamics(+/-) Field\n RED +,GREEN -",xlab="sec",ylab="scattering AU")

Implications of the result

  • The data clearly shows that the field increases the scattering
  • In this case spion is attacting the bacteria and more so in presence of field.
