Ayyappan A. presented his paper at the 2018 IEEE’s 3rd International Conference for Convergence in Technology, Gateway Hotel Hinjawadi Pune. The paper titled “Design of Hybrid Powered Automated Compressed Stabilized Earth Block (CSEB) Machine” was also coauthored by Sekhar Milan, Vipina Valsan, Sreejith Kailas T, P Kanakasabapathy. Ayyappan is on the Haptics team at AMMACHI Lab that innovates technology solutions for rural issues. This paper focuses on the design for an eco-friendly brick making machine that uses solar energy to mix and create bricks. The machine could potentially alleviate the drudgery of manual brick making and could automate the process for laborers. AMMACHI Labs teaches women to build toilets in rural India, and such a design if ever manufactured, could potentially help rural women produce bricks locally for lower cost and without heavy manual labor. “I really enjoy the work here at AMMACHI Labs because it is a good balance of MTECH and Research, all for social good.”
