For effective industrialization in the under developed countries and their economic growth, continuous developments with modern techniques in all possible areas are essentially required. As a result of innovative activities of our Scientists, Academicians and Technocrats, India is emerging as a leader in the developing world for rapid industrial growth. The developments of Electronics and Communication Technology and its application in all fields of engineering is assisting many industries to grow further.
Various technical reports indicate that continuous developments in the areas of VLSI, Satellite Communication, Antennae Design, Cloud Computing, Wireless Technology, Mobile Communication and Devices, Embedded System, Image and Video Processing, Application of Electronics in Bio-Medical Instrumentation, Interfacing of Electronic Devices with Mechanical and Electrical Machines & Equipments, Nanotechnology and Consumer Electronics Products, are bringing technological revolutions ensuring better quality of human life with enhanced efficiency and further industrial growth with sophistication and modern techniques.
Various developments in Electronics Engineering and its application have very high potential for technological revolution in Bio-Medical Engineering. Today, Bio-Medical Engineering and its course contents are limited mostly to Bio-Medical Instrumentation. With continuous improvements in Biosensors and Electronic Biochips, days are not very far when Medical Doctors will be converted to Bio-Medical Technocrats. Future Bio-Medical Technology will allow detection of various electrical, mechanical, electro-magnetic and other forms of micro signals by Biosensors and Bio-chips. Integration of Biochips with Biosensors and Computers will allow automatic diagnosis of human diseases. Once a disease is identified, automatic printing of medical prescription can be possible from a computer with medicines selected from medicine databases, through an appropriate computer software developed for the purpose.
India has very high population and without any population stabilization success, there is a report that India’s population may cross the population of China by 2030. We all know that majority of Indians are staying in rural areas. One of the major components and driving force of rural development is communication. Conventionally, communication includes electronic media, mobile communication devices, human communication and information technology (IT). All forms of communications have dominated the development scene in which its persuasive role has been most dominant within the democratic framework of the country. Communications with more improved satellite technology and radio broadcast have high potential for knowledge gain in rural areas. More low-cost “Communication and Networking Solutions” are required for rural developments. We have to accept these challenges for further innovations in this regard.
