The zeal to travel extra miles at a tender age has made city lad BS Revant Namburi, the youngest Indian at the age of 12 to get three patents registered in his name. The patents are monitoring of traffic violation in real-time, shaping smart and safe city; preventing or detecting theft of vehicles using a smart key and the third, printing anywhere without the requirement of network connectivity. He has applied for the fourth one -- preventing driving without licence as well as curbing the menace of multiple driving licences. Revant is a Std VII student of Mount Litera Zee School.

Dr Shilpa Namburi, MD in Ayurveda, while talking to ‘The Hitavada’ disclosed that Revant always has interest in exploring things; many of his toys got operated within a few days.

“By seeing his curiosity and seriousness towards innovations, I along with my husband Dr U R Shekhar Namburi, after discussing with some of our near ones, and people attached to this field, were advised to contact Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Intellectual Property and Management (RGNIIPM) immediately. At RGNIIPM, we met Vivek Dahiya, one of the seasoned professionals. Dahiya took the responsibility of consulting Revant. As a result, three patents were registered in the name of Revant just two months back. As the next step, we are looking for universities, which will like to partner with Revant to develop working model,” added Dr Shilpa.

When contacted to share Revant’s achievement, Vivek Dahiya said, “I was surprised to see the level of concept provided by Revant. He is the youngest innovator who has thought of such kind of ideas. One of the concepts will empower the enforcement authorities to monitor law violations in real-time as well as track the violator in real-time from control room. From my experience of last 11 years in the industry, Revant is the youngest and interesting innovator I met. I am confident that Revant will be a successful researcher.”

Karan Sharma, Head of IP team, said that Revant’s ideas were of international level and good enough to suffice requirement of global market.
Madhu Singh, Principal, Mount Litera Zee School; and Vilas Karlekar, Regional Manager, also were proud of Revant achieving such a great feat at the age of just 12 years.

Patent 1: Monitoring of traffic violation in real-time, shaping smart and safe city
REVANT Namburi has given solution to sudden occurrence of certain medical issues while driving. Road hazard is caused by drunken driving at checkpoints/barricades causing traffic jams for which Revant has innovated the idea of breath analyser, heart rate sensor, seat belt sensor and CPU, which will be connected to Police Control Room. This will help in monitoring real-time red-light jumping, over-speeding, unauthorised use of vehicles, rash driving, hit-and-run case, use of registration number on multiple vehicles, central data of violators, cancellation of licence based on number of violations and other violations.

Patent 2: Preventing and/or detecting theft of vehicles using a smart key
WITH the advancements in technology, computerised operations, central locking system and keyless entry systems has been developed to enhance security of cars. But if the key itself is stolen/lost, the thief gets full access to the car. Presently, there is no system or method for prevention of theft once the key is stolen/lost. The thoughtful solution utilises biometrics identification of user who touches smart key and comprises of a two-step authorisation process.

Patent 3: Printing anywhere without requirement of network connectivity
PRINTERS are developed that could be connected wirelessly to wireless network such as Wi-Fi or have a Bluetooth device. So, whenever a print is required to be taken from a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, they simply need to be connected to the printer via the wireless network or a Bluetooth and print easily. Without network it is not possible to print from a smartphone. The thoughtful solution utilises 1D or 2D Barcode technology to facilitate printing of documents anywhere.
