Digital Weighting Machine Innovated by RUET Student
Md. Al-Helal, student of the Rajshahi university of Engineering and Technology (RUET) has invented a novel digital weighting machine. He is a fourth year student of civil engineering department.
To calculate the volume of land and others things we usually use scale or chain. But some things such as depth of river and height of bridge, computation is not possible by scale. The newly innovated weighting scale can compute the depth, height from any distance just through pushing some buttons on the machine, said Helal.
Digital display of this machine show the height and weight results up to 4 or 5 digits after decimal point which is not possible by traditional scale machines. Helal also said that using the local technology and C-programming as well as microprocessor chips he made the new weighting machine which produced cost only about TK 2-3 thousand.
It took him about three years to achieve the success while Dr. M Kamruzzaman Nayon a teacher of civil engineering department actively guided him. Dr. Nayon said that for earth survey this machine could be used commercially in every part of the country, because of its affordable price and easy handling.
An exhibition programme was organized recently to introduce the new weighting machine among the teachers and students of the RUET at central cafeteria where Vice Chancellor Prof. M Sirazul Karim and others teachers of civil engineering department had spoken.
