The institute has undertaken several projects, namely Kerala Education Grid, Karshaka Information Systems, Services And Networking (KISSAN), Computational Chemistry portal, AKM India and ILCI among others.
Karshaka Information Systems, Services And Networking (KISSAN)
Pilot Tele-health and Medical Informatics Initiatives:
These are being established as major projects and services jointly with the Sri Chitra Tirunal Institute, Trivandrum Medical College and the local Medical College Hospital. The Tele-health project will cover the Lakshadweep Islands and the whole of Kerala in stages by linking select primary and secondary healthcare centres. [ more about Tele Health]
Advanced POLICE Portal for Community Interaction
This is a collaborative project between Trivandrum City Police and IIITM-K. The concept of Police-Citizen Interaction Portal rests on the belief that solutions to today's community problems demand freeing both people and the police to explore creative, new ways through appropriate application of ICT to address neighborhood concerns beyond a narrow focus on conventional policing. This project also envisages establishing computer connectivity of police offices under city police commissioner. In the proposed model, TCP plans to work closely with the community through participation of the city's Resident Associations [RAs] of Trivandrum City facilitated by the Portal. The portal will serve as a mechanism for effective asynchronous interaction and e-learning facility added to the current regular meetings. For further details, visit www.tvmcitypolice.org
Computational Chemistry portal
- This portal aims at bringing Chemistry and Chemists together.
- Help to work in frontier areas in chemistry through interaction with world-class experts and web accessed resources in order to build Quality education in Chemistry interactively from basic to graduates,post graduates and research levels.
- Enable computation in chemistry through grid access to open source software and high end computers spread across universities and institutions.
Agriculture is and will continue to be the main driver of country’s economic growth with social justice. Our agriculture did extremely well and it was on the ascendancy till the mid nineties but after that the growth slowed down. Since 1996-97 the growth rate of agricultural GDP has been, on an average, 1.75 % per year in contrast with the rate of 4% that is required. On the other hand the farmer has been facing rising input costs, declining returns from the inputs, uncertain market, increasing role of market in agriculture and blurring of distinction between the domestic market and the international market. To assist the farmer in these changing contexts new strategies and innovative solutions are urgently required which in turn will require technological support. Hence the agricultural research system which generates technologies, has to conduct the business of agricultural research in an innovative way. The World Bank aided National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP) has been conceived to pilot this innovation in conducting agricultural research. More details: http://www.akmindia.in/
Indian Language Consortia Initiative (ILCI) project
Other Turnkey Projects
Knowledge Management Portal for ADA, Bangalore
This aim of the project was to create a knowledge management and enterprise services environment for Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) Bangalore. ADA is one of the leading users of IT in all its functions -from design, group work, documentation, CAD, CAE, CAM, mathematical modeling and analysis, information processing and even routine office functions.
The whole project was implemented in the following phases:
(1) System Study & customization of the Knowledge Management (KM) Portal
(2) Installation of KM Portal along with Video Streaming server
(3) Developer Training
(4) Orientation Training for the users
The project has been completed and the portal is in operation at ADA, Bangalore.
Virtual Campus Network for RRL, Thiruvananthapuram (RRL-T)
IIITM-K started a project with Regional Research Laboratory (CSIR) Trivandrum, for "Enabling RRL-T to create a `Virtual Campus' in info transactions / handling processes to support better R&D." This project was to be executed in two phases. Consultancy is being provided for campus wide networking and maintenance services. A preliminary systems study and network study has been conducted. A demo server for Intra-Lab communication has been installed at RRL. Information resources uploading and customization is going on. An orientation programme for the Administrators, heads of the departments in RRL-T has been completed.
Satellite based Data casting across Kerala
IIITM-K jointly with WorldSpace has successfully conducted demonstration of satellite-based data casting for agriculture across 8 districts in Kerala for the period of one month. This demonstration has been conducted in collaboration with WorldSpace (the world renowned satellite data casting services provider) and the project was approved and funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Govt. of Kerala. During the one-month the demonstration team could visit and cover a large number of people across the state and gathered a good feedback. The targeted end users of this demonstration were farmers at Krishi Bhavans and various agricultural officials. During this demonstration we have covered around 400-500 farmers and other department officials. A detailed report on the observations and findings during the demonstration has been submitted to the Agriculture department.
In all these districts the same demonstration has been set up for the other sectors like education and health. The target users were the teachers and doctors. For the educational sectors we have covered a number of educational institutions and in the health sector we have covered a number of hospitals, public health hospitals and other offices like Indian Medical Association etc.
Knowledge Management System for TCMC
Travancore Cochin Medical Council (TCMC) was enacted as a part of Medical council of India. IIITM-K has executed a consultancy project on establishing a knowledge Management systems for Travancore Medical Council (TCMC) which includes deployment of a smart portal catering to the collaboration needs of the Kerala Medical Council and computerization of the Council Facilities. The second phase of the project include developing various databases.
This phase aims to establish an advanced medical council portal, continuing medical education and medical awareness information dissimilation and digital library facilities for Travancore Medical Council, Kerala; Kerala Dental Council (KDC), and Kerala Nursing Council(KNC), Trivandrum. This will create knowledge Management and enterprise services environment for TCMC, KDC, and KNC.
