Selected Research Projects
Holistic Energy Awareness for Intelligent Drones
Holistic energy-aware multi-drone scheduling system that decreases the energy consumed by 21.14% and the mission times by 46.91% over state-of-the-art.
Paper accepted at ACM International Conference on Systems for Energy-Efficient Built Environments (BuildSys), 2021 (Best Paper Runner-Up)
Pollinator Bee at IIT Bombay
This projects imitates the behaviour of pollinator bee. As the bee goes from flower to flower and pollinates them, here the drone(PlutoX) takes off from beehive, goes to each flower, pollinates them and lands back to the beehive. This includes Aerial Robotics, ROS, V-REP simulation, Control Systems and Image Processing. Our team secured first position in the competition.
This project was developed as a part of eYRC 2018 competition at IIT Bombay.
A light and compact wearable for capturing precise finger and hand gestures - uses potentiometers placed at every joint of the hand and an IMU.
This project started in Hack-A-Bit 2018 and then taken forward. It secured second position at ACM Student Research Competition at ESWEEK'19 held at NYU. Later, It got accepted in ACM WearSys 2020 (Mobisys), Toronto, Canada
