For those who haven’t heard, ‘appam’ or ‘palappam’ is a traditional food in South India mainly in Kerala.
Manual way of preparing appam is tedious when it comes to mass production. This is an era of automation where it is broadly defined as replacement of manual effort by mechanical power in all degrees of automation. The operation remains an essential part of the system although with changing demands on physical input as the degree of mechanization is increased.
This was done as the project work part of our B Tech course. I was a part of the team including my classmates Praise Sabu, Sreerag MP, Sukesh PP and Vaishak S Kurup guided by Mr. Nandu S, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Department. We all are happy that this project got well recognized in various technical events.
(More than just an academic work, this project got funded by KSCSTE and bagged various prizes in different project competitions like SRISHTI 2017 organised by SAINTGITS and second prize in National Innovation Challenge organized by TechTop at IIT Delhi.)
