Moshood Abiola Polytechnic Abeokuta, Ogun State Nigeria, which was popularly known as MAPOLY is proud to have its student Invent some machines which was believed would give comfort, solution and also solve some of the common human problems and needs.
The Innovations was officially unveiled at an event which was organized to observe the World Engineering Day. The event which took place at the faculty of Engineering, MAPOLY was attended by the polytechnic’s Rector, Dr. Adeoye Odedeji who was accompanied by the director, school of Engineering [MAPOLY] Dr. Olanrewaju Apampa who was also the Chairman of the Nigeria Society of Engineers [N.S.E], Abeokuta branch.
Some other dignitaries who attended the event are some of the school faculty’s head of departments [HOD], directors, Sub-deans and others.
At the event was the unveiling and the exhibition of innovations by the students from the Faculty of Engineering which includes students from the department of Computer Engineering, department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and the department of Mechanical Engineering.
Some of the innovations by the Engineering students of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic [MAPOLY] includes;
Gas powered generator, Remote control Kerosene generator, an Automatic Blind Walking Stick, Smart Health Monitoring system Using Internet of Things[I.O.T], Android control Water Supply System with Smart Mathematical Calibration, Vehicle tracking system, Password based Access control system [Drawer / Cabinet], Home Automation System with internet access, Mini Hydro power plant / Mechanical Rain Water Turbine for generating Electricity, Plastic (Pellet) Grinding, Maize Shelling Machine, Maize thresher Machine, Smart Dust-Bin Using I.O.T, Plastic Pellet Machine and Design and construction of a face recognition system.
Gas powered generator; A generator which can be fueled with gas to generate Electricity.
Remote control Kerosene generator; A generator which can be fueled with kerosene to generate Electricity for domestic use, also can be controlled with a remote.
An Automatic Blind Walking Stick; An automated blind walking stick with sensors and vibrator, which can be used by a visually impaired person to move on their own. It sensors obstacles at 30, 60 and 90 degrees.
Smart Health Monitoring system Using Internet of Things[IOT]; This can be used at hospitals, clinics and as well served for domestic purposes. It is a smart technology device that can be controlled on mobile.
Android control Water Supply System with Smart Mathematical Calibration; This can also be used in homes, hotels, e.t.c. to control water supply system remotely.
Vehicle tracking system; Can be used by individuals in their vehicles to enable tracking of their vehicles easily.
Password based Access control system [Drawer / Cabinet]; This is a drawer/safe which is built to safeguard valuables using password as access. This can be used at bedrooms and in offices to password protect documents to avoid unauthorized access.
Home Automation System with internet access; This can be used at home to remotely power On and Off home appliances such as Televisions, washing machines, Sound systems, water heater, Pumping machines, e.t.c. This is a smart system, built with an Internet access control whereby you can take charge and control your home Electrical Appliances remotely on your phone from anywhere.
Design and construction of a face recognition system; This can be used in offices to restrict non staffs from gaining access into the main office which are out of bound to non-staffs. It stores databases of staffs including their faces and automatically recognizes and captures their face before access can be granted or denied for entry. Unlike the earlier inventions, this face recognition system does all the works without human intervention nor under human supervision.
Mini Hydro power plant / Mechanical Rain Water Turbine; This can serve as a domestic purpose of generating Electricity for Houses/Estates.
Maize Thresher Machine; This machine can be used to remove and separate maize from its. It will separate the corn ain a separate place and the in a separate place.
Recall that in previous years, it was reported that, Mechanical students of MAPOLY invent a tricycle that uses kerosene instead of petrol as fuel. However, it is obvious and unarguable to say, that the polytechnic is graced with lots of able youths and intellectual undergraduates, who are technically endowed and innovative.
Dr. Adeoye Odedeji who was recently appointed as the Ag. Rector, MAPOLY by the governor of Ogun state, Gov. Dapo Abiodun when giving his speech, says;
“The Polytechnic’s primary objective is producing great innovators and leaders of tomorrow. We want to see our students in high places, hear about them and be proud they are our products, I mean products of this great Citadel of Learning.”
Odedeji continued, says, since inception of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic MAPOLY, the Institution has been producing World-class and innovative graduates.
“Producing future leaders is our primary assignment, we always make sure that, graduate from the institution are good products with morals. They are not only trained to in their respective field of study, but are also trained to be well mannered among their counterparts in their respective chosen carrier and also to be good citizens of Nigeria.” says the Rector.
