Students of Mangalore Institute of Technology and Engineering (MITE), Moodabidri, who have demonstrated transmission of data through light sources with much higher speed, have won the third prize at the Annual 7th Edition of UNISYS All India Project Competition Cloud 20/20.

The team comprising final year students of electronics and communication engineering—Shibil George and Prinson V. Jacob—presented a Triplet Li-Fi project at the competition and won a cash prize of Rs. 1 lakh along with a citation.

Besides being the only team from Karnataka to win prizes in the competition, the students also get a chance of employment with UNISYS, a release from the college here said.

The team was guided by H.M. Ramalingam, Assistant Professor of the department. Triplet Li-Fi is a method of visible light communication technology where data is transmitted using light as the source gaining greater speeds compared with the current technology.

T-Li-Fi concept is similar to Li-Fi; but T-Li-Fi uses the concept of RGB multiplication to produce white light spectrum. Each colour carries different data, so the speed is three times better than conventional Li-Fi.

This technology is advancement from optical fibre communication to optical wireless communication. Since the technology uses only light as the source, T-Li-Fi can be a safe mode of data transmission in hazardous industries like petroleum or chemicals; underwater communications; aircrafts and even in hospitals, the release said.

The finals of the annual student project competition for engineering college students across India was held in Bengaluru recently. As many as 1,600 teams from different colleges participated in the competition.
