Brief Write up of Most Successful Research Projects:

Value Added Services in Regional Language on Handheld Devices

The motivation behind this project “Value Added Services in Regional Language on Handheld Devices” was to provide the rural population with an easy to use, open source, nonproprietary tool that enables them to use Tamil as a language of communication. This application enables the user to create and maintain Contacts and Schedules in Tamil Language, Value Added Services in three different domains (Railways, Airways and Stock) have been implemented which enables a user to make a versatile query in these domains. This allows the user to retrieve the live information in Regional Language..

Intelligent Information Retrieval of Thirukkural in Handheld Devices

This project is intended to provide intelligent information retrieval of Thirukkural in handheld devices. A Tamil user canmake a versatile query in this domain and it will be presented with its abstract on his mobile phone. Entire Thirukkural domain (Chapters and its abstract) along with its lexical chains and synonym set has been created. Semantic processing of Thirukkural domain has been implemented and hosted in a Web server. Mobile users with CPRS connection can enable Keyword and Concept based retrieval from this domain and retrieves the desired information.
AMD Opteron Servers - eServer 325, 16 Nos.

Tamil Keypad Software Testing and Development for Mobile Phones

This project is aimed to implement different Tamil Keypad layouts which could be analyzed and tested for efficiency providing valuable information to the Committee named “Standardization of Tamil in Mobile phones” to take a decision on the optimality of the keypads. In this project, three different keypad layouts have been implemented and SMS message transfer between the mobile phones using Tamil software has been enabled. Moreover, we customized this application to enable the Keypad evaluation.
