The ADALM-PLUTO Active Learning Module (PlutoSDR) is an easy-to-use tool available from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) that can be used to introduce fundamentals of software-defined radio (SDR) or radio frequency (RF) or communications as advanced topics in electrical engineering in a self- or instructor-led setting. The PlutoSDR allows students to better understand the real-world RF around them, and is applicable for all students at all levels, from all backgrounds. Early learning in a hands-on manner with the PlutoSDR will ensure a solid foundation for students to build on as they pursue science, technology, or engineering degrees.
The PlutoSDR Active Learning Module is a tool that closes the relationship between theory and practical radio frequency activities of the user. It provides a personal portable lab that, when used with a host, can augment the learning that takes place in the classroom. A variety of software packages such as MATLAB or Simulink provide an innovative graphical user interface (GUI), allowing intuitive usage and minimizing the learning curve, enabling students to learn faster, work smarter, and explore more!

AICTE has also asked the institutes to provide their students internships in which they can work from home. This advise from the technical education regulator comes as the country is on lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Students take summer internships during this time of the year where they engage in real-time projects.
“#AICTE directs all its Approved Institutes to instruct students NOT to take up any Summer #Internships outside organizations. Instead colleges/institutes should give challenging problems as #internship which can be done #FromHome,” the Council’s first tweet reads.
#AICTE directs all its Approved Institutes to instruct students NOT to take up any Summer #Internships outside organizations. Instead colleges/institutes should give challenging problems as #internship which can be done #FromHome. Official E-mails sent to all concerned. #StayHome
Polaris Ranger was launched in August 2011 and is useful in mountainous areas; also, it was utilised extensively for relief operations when flash floods had hammered the region in 2013.
A pround moment for Polaris when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was transported in the Polaris Ranger 6×6 while visiting the Kedarnath temple on May 3, 2017.
Polaris Ranger was launched in August 2011 and is beneficial in mountainous areas; also, the Polaris Ranger was utilised extensively for relief operations when flash floods had hammered the region in 2013. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi travelled in a Polaris Ranger 6X6 800 EFI. The Polaris Ranger RZR Side by Side is the only sport utility off-roader which is exclusively built for off-road activities claims the company.
The off-roader is available in four variants: Only Trail (solely for hilly/mountain terrain), Only Sport (for dune-surfing and riding in open spaces), Only 4 Seat (world’s first 4-seater Side by Side) and Only Extreme (Premium performance under all conditions).
The Polaris Ranger 6×6 has the strength to tow 907 kg payload with a capacity of 567kg at the rear dump box. An 800cc twin cylinder powers the off-roader with EFI which produces close to 40bhp of power. The Polaris Ranger 6×6 features an on-demand six-wheel drive with independent suspension with 30.4cm of ground clearance.
PM Narendra Modi’s cavalry usually has an armoured BMW 7 Series that secures him. He has also been a big fan of the Mahindra Scorpio which he used extensively during his term as Gujrat CM. However, the 7 Series surely cannot go to places that this extreme 6X6 from Polaris can!
