GCIT Students Revolutionize Gyalsung Programme and More with Cutting-Edge Tech Solutions

In a groundbreaking move, students from Gyalpoizhing College of Information Technology (GCIT) have developed an innovative solution to address the concerns of parents regarding their children’s placement in the Gyalsung programme. Utilizing advanced technologies such as full-stack applications, these students have created the Gyalsung Smart Allocation System.

This system, designed to automate student placement into the four Gyalsung academies based on Class XII marks, promises to streamline the process significantly for academy officials. Norbu Dorji and his team, in collaboration with Gyalsung, spearheaded this project, ensuring an efficient, manual-free sorting mechanism.

The Gyalsung Smart Allocation System was one of 39 projects showcased at a recent event on June 3, featuring 20 projects by third-year students and 19 by final-year students. These final-year projects were developed in collaboration with various organizations and government departments, including Gyalsung, the National Land Commission, thromdes, and Druk Holding & Investments (DHI), among others.

Harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology, the students delivered a range of innovative solutions. One notable project was Parking.bt, a mobile application developed by a group of final-year students in partnership with Phuentsholing Thromde. This app digitizes the car parking monitoring system, enhancing efficiency and addressing issues such as data management, unauthorized fee collection, driver reluctance to pay fees, and time-consuming processes.

Parking.bt includes two applications: one for drivers to check available parking spaces, park, and make payments, and another for fee collectors to be notified when a vehicle leaves and confirm payment methods. Additionally, a website tracks the revenue generated from parking fees.

These projects, developed during the final semester, were graded and examined by both clients and examiners. Karma Cheki, a lecturer at GCIT, mentioned that some partners approached the college, while the college reached out to others to create these innovative projects.

Among the impressive projects was the NLCS Smart Appointment System, developed in collaboration with the National Land Commission (NLCS). This system includes client and admin dashboards, allowing users to schedule, cancel, and reschedule appointments with notifications sent via dashboards and emails.

A group of third-year students developed an AI-powered sign language translator, inspired by the challenges faced by deaf students at Wangsel Institute in Paro. The system captures sign language gestures through a camera and translates them into text and voice, with an emergency feature to send pre-programmed messages to a guardian’s WhatsApp.

Another third-year group created GovChain, a blockchain-based system designed to facilitate decentralized and transparent decision-making processes. Modeled after parliamentary voting methods, GovChain securely stores discussion topics, voting details, and vote counts on the tamper-proof Ethereum blockchain.

An AI-driven Animal Detection system was also developed by third-year students to identify six wild animals, including elephants and monkeys, using cameras and sound alerts to warn nearby people of the animals’ presence.

Karma Cheki revealed plans to present the final-year projects to companies and government departments by the end of the month, aiming to transition these innovative solutions into real-world applications.
