Research & Development

K.Ramakrishnan College of Technology, ever since its inception in the year 2010, has taken huge strides towards differentiating itself by focusing on pursuit of Innovation and Research by its faculty and students. To prove the R&D activities in our college, our faculty members have published many research papers in various National and International Journals and Conferences. The Research Advisory Board monitors the research and development activities, focuses on Submission of project proposals to various funding agencies and recommends for the campus and other infrastructure developments. It also offers a quality research training experience for its students and faculty members in the recent frontiers of Engineering and Technology.

What the IoT Means

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is an industry- and world-changing wave of transformation for manufacturers.

Software, sensors, and IP-enabled connectivity are increasingly embedded into the product.IDC estimates there will be 30 billion connected “things” by 2020. This change defines a fundamental shift in how value is created for individual consumers, and across the entire global economy.

IoT Solutions Enable You To Securely Connect Smart Things, Manage and Analyze Data, Create Applications, and Ultimately Transform Your Business

PTC acquired the leading IoT technologies, ThingWorx, Axeda and Coldlight, to deliver the world’s first complete and purpose built IoT Platform.

The ThingWorx IoT Platform

  • ThingWorx speeds the creation of high value IoT applications that support manufacturers’ strategies, such as predictive maintenance and system monitoring, and enhance PTC’s existing ALM, PLM, and SLM solution portfolio.
  • Establish a secure, reliable connection to products as well as a platform to rapidly develop IoT applications for maintaining and operating them – and ultimately for finding ways to create new value from them.
  • Supports rapid application development (RAD) through the use of model-based development and mashup tools, enabling you to deploy tailored M2M/IoT applications up to 10 times faster with full data management and analysis capabilities.
  • View ThingWorx demo videos illustrating just a few of the manufacturing and service models made possible by the ThingWorx platform.

Axeda Machine Cloud

  • Axeda provides the most advanced cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and machines and implementing innovative Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
  • Turn machine data into useful information, build and run IoT applications and optimize business processes by integrating machine data.

Coldlight (Neuron)

  • Coldlight’s Neuron Predictive Analytics Platform uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to automatically analyze data, detect patterns, build statistically validated predictive models, and send information to virtually any type of application or technology.
  • Detects production yield faults or supply chain issues for manufactures before they ever happen.
  • Automatically exposes patterns and correlations inside of massive data sets.
  • Predicts consumer behavior to provide the best products.
  • Reduces the risk of non-compliance for companies operating in heavily regulated industries.
