Dheeraj Kotagiri, led the team from IIT Bombay, which presented a LED Beacon and Receiver Module for harnessing Li-Fi technology. The product would be a LED light supply, which would be linked to a receiver which might transmit facts in actual time.

IIT Varanasi’s Naman Singhal led a team working on a Breathalyzer Helmet, a clever helmet integrated with a two wheeler which – will continues both the motive force as well as the vehicle secure and at ease bymaking it obligatory for the driving force to put at the helmet and have a permissible alcohol breathdegree as a way to be able to begin the automobile. the uniqueness of the answer being that a selected-wheeler can best be switched on with a specific helmet and without which the 2-wheeler cannot be beganhence making it secure from theft also.
