Auto major BMW appreciates work of AMU Students

Three Aligarh Muslim University Engineering students, Faraz Islam (Computer Engineering Final Year), Mohammad Adil (Electronics Engineering Final year) and Sayeed Akhtar Alvi (Electrical Engineering 6th semester), represented AMU at the International Conference of Computer Modelling and Simulation held at Amsterdam, Netherlands during 12-13 February, 2015.

Their contribution included a paper presentation on “Smart automated car parking system using PLC (programmable logic controller)”. This is related to book a vacant parking on the move, just like we book movie tickets from our computers or mobile phones.

Their paper was appreciated by the scientists, especially by Mr. Florian Niedermeier, representative of BMW group who chaired the conference. He was impressed with the concept of the research paper and appreciated the work of the young scientists. He suggested implementing the concept. The students received their certificates of appreciation for their extraordinary work in the field of automation and simulation. In future they would like to implement the idea on a small scale in India. For this they will be developing a mobile app soon.

These young researchers are not at all geeky. When The Milli Gazette contacted one of them, he said he was busy watching the world cup cricket match. Please contact later! (Picture: Extreme left is Saeed Akhtar Alvi, Faraz is the one in the centre with beard, Adil the right most.)
