  1. Design and implementation of Raspberry Pi-based Smart Glass for Blind People

The aim of the design and develop a smart glass that can recognize objects, barriers, holes, family members, and Bangladeshi currency and generate associated audio instructions for blind individuals.

  1. Mobile Based Microscope Imaging and Remote Monitoring for Telemedicine

This project aimed to provide a point-of-care test for malaria in the rural area of our country where it is epidemic.

  1. EMG acquisition system development

We aimed to develop a low-cost EMG signal acquisition tool using an open-source platform(Arduino) with analog electronic components.
