MANAV RACHNA RESEARCH INNOVATION & INCUBATION CENTRE
MRIIC is a seminal initiative of MREI and is dedicated to Founder Visionary Dr. O.P. Bhalla whose dream was to encourage research, innovation and entrepreneurship to help the students to develop professional entrepreneurial ability and mindset to set up their own enterprises. It has been established with a view to cater to the needs of students and faculty members who are inclined towards research, innovation, and novel ideas.
The Centre through its various activities encourages both engineering and non-engineering students across various departments to develop innovative and creative business ideas which in the subsequent stages are incubated to convert into successful enterprises. The Centre is instrumental in coordinating entrepreneurial education so that they develop necessary background to take up viable and feasible start-up ventures. The Centre regularly organizes business plan competitions through which meritorious projects are identified and selected for direct support.

Some of the notable innovative projects developed by students at MRIIC are given below:
1. Project Shwaas
Shwaas is designed to help anyone who has consumed alcohol to make smarter choices before getting behind the wheel. Shwaas plugs into your smartphone’s headphone jack and after you download the accompanying app and secure the device, all you do is blow into the device to register your BAC (Blood Alcohol Consumption).
Practicing the art of dentistry requires a high degree of concentration and precision. But awkward postures, repetitious hand movements, and persistent vibration to the hand and wrist from a high-speed hand piece can make practitioners vulnerable to pain, injury. The gadget comes with a mobile phone application to monitor postures and guiding the user for the correct postures.
Team Eyeluminati from Manav Rachna won Jury’s choice award for their idea’ GRIWADITI which is an automated,non-invasive and easily accessible screening tool for Cervical Cancer.Griwaditi is a point-of –care portable imaging device which used advanced optical techniques to produce high resolution magnified images of the cervix. Ithas a unique cervical cancer lesion detection algorithm to quickly screen cervical cancer. The remote diagnostic application allows images to be shared for consultation with experts around the world via a cloud based tele-oncology platform.
4. Solar Driven Car: Award Winning Project
Solar Driven Car, a final year project of Automobile Engineering department, students of MRIU has bagged the 1st Runner-Up position in the ‘Student Innovator of the Year’ award category at the Indian Automotive Technology and Innovation Awards (IATIA) for the year 2016.
The award was given for application–‘Enhancement of Electric Vehicles with Safety Devices’. The designed and developed vehicle comprises of innovations such as– Ultra-capacitor, Three-dimensionalsolar panel charging, Electronic gadgets (like G.P.S navigation system, overloadingsensing system, security system), Pre-collision indication, Chassiswith impact indicatingsensors, Vehicle to Vehicle communication using Bluetooth, an Automatic roof water collector.
