MindEye, project of IITGN professor, selected to be shown to PM on Army Day

Gandhinagar, Jan 11 (UNI) MindEye, one of the three research projects by professors of Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) which were displayed at the Army Technology (ARTECH) Seminar in New Delhi recently has been selected to be shown to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Army Day on January 15.
MindEye, an easy-to-use eye-tracking device, integrated with computerised cognitive tests, could help in early detection of depression in soldiers.
The three projects which can help Indian Army combat fire, depression and limb movement disorders in high altitude areas were displayed in the seminar held as part of 'Make in India' initiative on January 8 and were related to the central theme of this year’s seminar – Technology as a Key Enabler to Overcome Challenges of Military Operations in High Altitude, a press communique by the institute on Thursday said.

Prof Uttama Lahiri presented two projects. MindEye, an easy-to- use eye-tracking device, integrated with computerised cognitive tests, could help in early detection of depression in soldiers. This could help the superiors decide his employment at sensitive and critical duty locations. It will also help in assessment of cognitive load on soldiers in active duty, and assessment and early warning of cognitive impairment at high altitude areas.
The MindEye project has been selected to be shown to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Army Day (January 15) at New Delhi.
The other project of Professor Lahiri is technology-based rehabilitation for static and dynamic balance for individuals with movement disorders, which can help one adapt to his/her disability and help in faster recovery from the disorder. This can also serve as an exercise platform for soldiers who have undergone spinal cord injury, stroke and other movement-related disorders.
At the third project of IITGN, Prof Chinmay Ghoroi and Prof Gaurav Srivastava presented the aerosol-based fire detection and suppression system. The technology has tremendous potential for applications in Indian Army, especially at confined places where outbreak of fire gets un-noticed initially and controlling fire becomes a challenge. The product detects the fire and activates a device to suppress the fire automatically.
