Sustainability in Electrical Engineering
The Electrical Engineering Department held a sustainability competition for small-scale projects entitled “Sustainability in Electrical Engineering” on Thursday, 18 April, 2019. About five student groups participated in this competition with five projects. The winning project entitled “Smart Traffic Management Using IoT”. The Internet of things (IoT), is a concept that recently evolved to refer to that generation of internet that allows interconnection between devices via the Internet, thus enabling human beings to remotely control and monitor these devices. The winning project presented many solutions to the issue of traffic jam, using an automatically operating system based on new and renewable energy to control and monitor traffic signs and lights. This system has also a remote-controlling facility using Google Cloud at emergency.
