IIT Ropar Develop's World's First 'Plant Based' Smart Air Purifier

  • Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), Ropar and Kanpur and Faculty of Management Studies of Delhi University have jointly launched a living-plant based air purifier named "Ubreathe Life". This air purifier will boost the air purification process in indoor spaces, such as hospitals, schools, offices and homes. It is the world's first, state-of-the-art 'Smart Bio-Filter' that can make breathing fresh.
  • The Ubreathe Life technology works through the air-purifying natural leafy plants. The room air interacts with leaves and goes to the soil-root zone where maximum pollutants are purified.
  • It has been developed by the IIT Ropar incubated startup, Urban Air Laboratory. The specific plants tested for air-purification include Peace Lily, Snake Plant, Spider plant etc. and all have given good results in purifying indoor-air, the company has claimed.
  • The purifier effectively improves indoor air quality by removing particulate, gaseous and biological contaminants while increasing the oxygen levels in the indoor space through specific plants, UV disinfection and a stack of Pre-filter, Charcoal filter and HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter fitted in a specially designed wooden box, the company has said about the air purifier's functioning mechanism.

IIT-Roorkee, IISc Bangalore, C-DAC Develop India's First Quantum Computer Simulator Toolkit

  • The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India launched the country's first 'Quantum Computer Simulator (QSim) Toolkit'. QSim is a first-of-its-kind toolkit to be indigenously developed and is intended to be a vital tool in learning and understanding the practical aspects of programming using Quantum Computers.
  • It is the country's first collaborative initiative in this field, brought together by IISc Bangalore, IIT Roorkee and C-DAC to address the common challenge of advancing the Quantum Computing research frontiers in India. It will enable researchers and students to research Quantum Computing in a cost-effective manner.
  • QSim equips researchers to explore quantum algorithms under idealised conditions and assists them in making necessary arrangements for experiments to run on actual Quantum Hardware. QSim can serve as an essential educational/research tool providing an excellent way to attract students/researchers to the field of Quantum Technology. The toolkit creates a platform that helps students and users acquire the skills of 'programming' and 'designing' real Quantum Hardware.
