Skills: Modeling and Simulation · Robot Operating System (ROS) · Mobile Robotics · Robot Control · Visual Perception · Field Mapping · Hardware Support · 3D Prototyping · Python (Programming Language).

This project revolves around coordinated multi-robot terrain estimation and exploration using wheeled robots/rovers that are coupled together serially via a tether. For more details, please click on this link. Here I

  • Implemented controls, visual perception and field mapping tasks by integrating NVIDIA Jetson Nano, depth cameras/sensors and other hardware components with ROS.

  • Prototyped various ground rover designs (using Solidworks) & performed simulations using ROS, Gazebo and Python.

I assist in the analysis of remotely sensed data/images which are used to support planetary science research and NASA mission operations (Psyche Mission - https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/missions/psyche). I also provide assistance with Systems Engineering tasks.

Most Recent Work

  • Mechanical Subteam Lead at Sun Devil Robotics Club.

  • Individual Project : Multi Rover System for Mars Exploration (Course - Multi Robot Systems).

  • Team Project : National Science Foundation - CPS Challenge (Course - Autonomous Exploration Systems)

Mechanical Subteam Lead

September 2021 - Present

Skills: Solidworks · ANSYS · General mechanical design fundamentals · Prototyping/manufacturing mechanisms ·  Vehicle Engineering · SAR writeups · Organization & Leadership skills .

  • Lead the design and implementation of all mechanical-focused aspects of the ground rover.

  • Offered feedback and training to 15-20 freshman students regarding key mechanical engineering concepts and designing.

  • Aided with additional mechanical focused tasks like SAR write-ups, presentations, leading meetings, etc.

  • Worked with other subteams to integrate our work with their designs and standards

Individual Project : Multi-Rover System for Mars Exploration

Course : Multi-Robot Systems

October 2021 - December 2021

The goal of this project was to create a system that would enable highly-productive, semi-autonomous coordination between multiple robots for Mars exploration.

  • I documented mathematical models and prepared simulations for four-wheel and six-wheel rovers’ motion over different terrain situations using MATLAB.

  • Demonstrated leader follower formation control with obstacle avoidance using Robotarium libraries in MATLAB.

  • Re-illustrated all above-mentioned properties on WEBOT software using C++  for controller code.               

Team Project : National Science Foundation - CPS Challenge

Course : Autonomous Exploration Systems

Related to DREAMS Lab Project :
Exocam (www.exocam.io/)

January 2022 - July 2022

The project aims at competing in the NFS-2022 challenge hosted by Cyber Physical Systems, which is themed around a NASA TestFlight’s project, Lunar Exocam. The objective is to simulate and develop a multirotor drone which would be used to throw a sensor probe outside a perimeter so that it could be imaged as it landed.

Team Project : Pick and Place operation using UR5 Industrial robotic arm (MATLAB and V-REP Simulation)

Course : Modelling & Controls of Robot

November 2021 - December 2021

Designed the UR5 Industrial Robotic arm (6 DOF) using SOLIDWORKS and used MATLAB to simulate pick and place containers on different conveyor belts. (For better demonstration in an industrial environment, I tried it out with WEBOT simulator.)

MY BACKGROUND

WhatsApp Image 2023-06-01 at 11.23.12 AM.jpeg

I am an enthusiastic Mechanical Engineer with professional experience in designing, simulation, and execution of hands-on hardware development skills. I completed my Master's degree in Robotics and Autonomous Systems at Arizona State University, Tempe, specializing in Controls and Mechanical Engineering. I achieved a final GPA of 3.83 out of 4.

 

I have 2 years of professional experience in designing and development of numerous robotic systems, including autonomous vehicles and automated assembly systems. I like working on cross-functional projects that include controls, robotic hardware, perception, systems engineering, and other related areas.

I'd love to hear from you.
