Projects

I focus on interdisciplinary domains like electronics, mechanical, data systems, networks and architecture with my work targeting the hardware and software areas.

  • Bachelor’s Major Project to implement power-optimised re-configurable CNN memory accelerator on FPGA
  • Project aims to optimise power and speed with minimum impact on area for performing CNN operations
  • Reduced heavy memory accesses using simpler yet effective weights and created alternate memory mapped cache path for CNN operations
  • Team - Naadamaya (ID: 24725)
  • Algorithmic beat tracking is a challenge for real-time implementation
  • Developed causal beat tracking algorithm - includes onset detection, Beats Per Minute(BPM) estimation, beat phase estimation and beat prediction
  • A self-motivated project to implement packet switching using GPUs
  • Core networking functions such as lookups, hash calculation or encryption to be executed in parallel for multiple packets
  • GPU implementation provided flexibility over ASIC implementations for new algorithm implementations
  • Optimising CPU-GPU interactions, reduce DRAM access, faster lookups help in Named Data Networking (NDN) applications
August 2015 - March 2017
  • Funded Industrial collaboration project with Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd.
  • Design and Development of an Automated Guided Vehicle
  • Worked on the electronic controller board of the vehicle and designed PCB for the same
  • Worked on understanding Human-Computer Interaction of workers and the AGV in an industrial setup to implement better safety hooks in the vehicle
  • Development of a tablet with refreshable tactile interface to realise physical shapes and terrains to help visually challenged
  • Prototype on dynamic 3-D surface formation inspired from MIT’s inFORM
