Institution’s Innovation Council – Assam Royal Global University (IIC-RGU)

Ministry of Education (MoE), Govt. of India established Institution’s Innovation Council in the year 2018. Different educational institutions in the country are part of this initiative. The motive of this pro- gram is to systematically foster the culture of innovation amongst all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The Assam Royal Global University becomes a part of this initiative in the year 2019 and established the IIC- RGU. The IIC- RGU has achieved 3 Star rating out of 4 Stars in the year 2021 result published by MoE, AICTE. The primary mandate of IIC-RGU is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas and transform them. The Royal Innovation Incubator was established in the year 2021 under IIC-RGU. The Managing Director of NRL inaugurated the Royal Innovation Incubator. The focus of the incubator is to create an ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship development and create an awareness of IPR activity.

As students we are always in shortage of time and energy. As we stay in PG/Rented rooms our daily meals have to be prepared by ourselves .
To solve this problem, we introduced RoboChef V1. It is a smart autonomous rice cooker which cooks rice without human presence. It requires zero effort and less time. You just need to store the rice grains once in a month and set the time when you need your meal daily with our smart connected app RoboChef will do it’s job. You can have your meal on time.

Monitoring Field Conditions -

Drone field monitoring is also being used to monitor the health of soil and field conditions. Drones can provide accurate field mapping including elevation information that allow growers to find any irregularities in the field. Having information on field elevation is useful in determining drainage patterns and wet/dry spots which allow for more efficient watering techniques. Some agricultural drone retailers and service providers also offer nitrogen level monitoring in soil using enhanced sensors. This allows for precise application of fertilizers, eliminating poor growing spots and improving soil health for years to come.
