Completed Projects

  • ISRO Satellite Centre - Visalini's Network Management System   (ISAC-VNMS)

  • Provided with a time period of 2 years to complete the assignment. However, it was completed, within 35 days.

  • After the completion of the project, it was presented in front of the ISRO council members.

  • It was submitted to Government of India, through Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) at my 15 years and was named after me.

  • It was the first time in Indian history, that a 15 years old, was invited to work on a confidential project for ISRO.

  • Visalini's Solution for Demonetization Against Corruption   (ViSDAC)

  • Suggested a possible solution to the Government of India for implementation during demonetization to make the process smoother.

    (The technical details about ISAC-VNMS and ViSDAC are restricted due to proprietary conditions).

    Ongoing Projects

  • Sensor Placement Algorithm with Range Constraints for Precision Farming (SPARC)

  • Supervisor – Dr. Seshadhri Srinivasan, Berkeley Education Alliance for Research in Singapore (BEARS Lab, Singapore).

  • Collaborators:

  • Dr. Korkut Bekiroglu, Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering Technology, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, New York, US

  • Dr. Giovanni Palmieri, GRACE Research Group, University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy.

  • Key Contributions so far:

  • Propose an approach to correct the physical field and reconstruct it from minimal number of orthogonal functions.

  • The proposed method solves the optimal sensor placement problem with constraints imposed by sensor range.

  • Demonstrate the proposed methodology on a precision farming case-study by building WSN nodes using sensors and on-board computers. The remote sensing information obtained from real-measurements are used to illustrate the proposed approach.

  • Vision based Navigation using Deep Reinforcement Learning

  • Supervisor – Dr. Suresh Sundaram, Associate Professor, Department of Aerospace, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.

  • Hitherto, Autonomous vehicles have performed well in controlled environments, but the same is not observed in natural real-time environments.

  • Key Contributions so far:

  • Propose reinforcement learning (Q-learning) based approach for an autonomous vehicle to navigate in an unknown real-time environment.

  • Allow the agent to update the reward function spontaneously by comparing each episodes of learning to drive. This has to be done meticulously as the agent may learn a move which seems odd to the existing reward function.

  • Assistive Technology for Mentally-Challenged

  • AI-assisted therapy for people with neuro-cognitive disorders like, Mental Retardation, Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD, Autism.

  • Artificial stimulation and shutting down of selective neurons or neural-networks and Artificial brain-wave modulation techniques that is, by employing electric stimulation to uncover various aspects of brain lobes especially, frontal lobe that is involved in cognition and decision-making.

  • Harness advanced technologies like Virtual Reality and ageless methods like meditation together and understanding various facets that they provide to the ailments of serious disorders especially, PTSD.

  • Use AI to assist doctors and special educators in monitoring and predicting the cognition and decision-making processes of the mentally retarded persons. This can help in enhancing their physical, emotional and social well-being.

  • AI that helps to handle people of any age group with various levels of ID and can assist the doctors and special educators in handling the person and provides much better level of analysis and therapeutic conditions for behavior, sensory conditioning and self-care.

  • SOS Equipment for Soldiers

  • The Indian Soldiers at the Siachen Glacier area, a part of the Himalayas located 5,400 m above the sea level, protect the country keeping their lives at risk due to very uncertain weather conditions like landfalls, snowstorms and temperature of up to -50oC.

  • Developed a solution that helps in identifying the locations of the soldiers struck in emergency circumstances and aid in recovering them.

  • SOS Equipment for Fishermen

  • The Indian Peninsular fishermen face the uncertain wild face of the oceans during storms and are unable to reach out for help due to the unavailability of network inside the sea.

  • This project allows them to

  • get alerted about the upcoming calamity

  • reach out for help to the coast guard and nearby ships

  • locate their location to rescuers

  • SOS Equipment for Women

  • Even though a lot of SOS devices and applications meant for women are available in the market, this device’s uniqueness lies in its easy-to-access feature and reachability at any place including forbidden locations.

  • Assistive Technology for Visually-Challenged

  • Currently, Visually-impaired persons undertake any kind of examinations with an aid of another person (scribe).

  • The project aims at allowing them undertake all their exams individually without any dependency on other persons.

  • A preliminary study shows that, the concept itself uplifts their self-confidence and morale.

  • Chatbot using Reddit Threads

  • In search of data for my own chatbot, it was found that reddit community being the best place with massive data.

  • This allows it to be a generalized chatbot that is able chat on any topic.
