INTERVIEW: “Our Focus Is Primarily On Bharat Rather Than India” — Chakravarthi C, MD, Quantum Energy
While numerous electric two-wheeler brands are thriving in Tier 1 and Tier 2 regions of India, Quantum Energy, supported by Kusalava International, contends that the real growth lies in Tier 3, 4, and beyond regions in Bharat. How does this emerging player in the electric two-wheeler market pose a challenge to the established giants? Let’s hear from Chakravarthi C, MD of Quantum Energy
INTERVIEW: “We At Delta Focus On Chargers With Multiple Dispensing Guns” — Manjula Girish, Senior Director, Delta Electronics India
As hybrid vehicle sales gain momentum in both the United States and India, the electric vehicle market finds itself under a veil of uncertainty once more. How does Delta, one of the earliest players in the EV charging segment, view the current developments. Manjula Girish, Senior Director, Delta Electronics India shares her view with EFY’s Mukul Yudhveer Singh!
PROJECT: The Smallest GPS Tracker Ever
Global positioning system (GPS)-based tracking is one of the most important technologies in today’s world, which is very useful from parcel updates to navigation and many different fields of human life. However, if one wants to track small items, baggage, children’s locations, or spy on someone, a very small and compact-sized tracker is often needed, which can easily be attached without taking up much space. Here, a small-sized GPS tracker is described, which can be used as a keyring or attached as a tag to children’s bags to track them, or attached to the neck of animals, vehicles, parcels, or any person for tracking

MY STORY: Breathing Through “First-Time Silicon Success” — Chitra Hariharan, Renesas India
No one is born a leader, but the choices we make in life propel us to become a leader. For Chitra Hariharan, an innocent fascination for electronic appliances, which were slowly entering the Indian markets then, pushed her to make it big into the miniaturising world of electronics. With four successful silicon and electronics product startup exits, Chitra has led the chip design ecosystem for 35 years, contributing to almost 125 semiconductor products. She dreamed of making a difference and dared to choose the unconventional path, never giving up on an opportunity—she seized it and ran with it. This is Chitra Hariharan’s story as narrated to EFY’s Yashasvini Razdan
FUTURE: Energy Storage Solution Enters Iron Age (Part 2)

PROJECT: Voice-Controlled Obstacle-Avoiding Robot Using Bluetooth And Arduino Uno
The smart rover is a versatile robotic platform equipped with Bluetooth and voice control capabilities. The obstacle avoidance mechanism, facilitated by sensors, enables the smart rover to navigate autonomously, avoiding collisions with objects in its path
CIRCUIT IDEA: Sawtooth Wave Generator
A sawtooth waveform is a type of linear, non-sinusoidal waveform with a triangular shape in which the rise time and fall time are different. A pure triangular waveform is also linear and non-sinusoidal, but it has equal rise and fall times. The sawtooth waveform can also be called an asymmetric triangular wave
PROJECT: Smart Switch For Agriculture Irrigation
This smart switch system comprises an Arduino board with a GSM module that is remotely controlled by a smartphone. Through this adaptive technology, users can easily monitor the working condition and operational mode of machinery used on their farms from any location, rather than traveling long distances to the field under unfavourable conditions. The main objective is to provide convenience to the farmers
PROJECT: GPS Tracker With Arduino
A GPS (global positioning system) tracker utilises satellite signals to accurately determine the location of an object or person in real time. Originally developed by the United States Department of Defense for military applications, GPS technology has become widely accessible for civilian use. GPS trackers consist of hardware and software components that work together to receive signals from GPS satellites, calculate precise coordinates, and transmit this information to a central server or user device
