As an energetic, fun loving, and highly self-motivated person, I strongly believe in accomplishing every task responsibly and within the time allotted. With an eye for detail, I always make sure that my submissions do not lack the standards in terms of design and content. Along with being creative and adaptable, I am also a team player. When I lead, I make sure my team members are fully satisfied with the final decision while leaving no suggestion unheard.
To be associated with an Organization where I can upgrade and research, which can help me widen the horizon of my knowledge in the field of Technology; build something innovative for humanity
"When the going gets tough, the tough get going."
Success can be achieved not by knowing more but by implementing more. I am easily mouldable in almost every team I tend to work with. I can help the team make great decisions to achieve goals.

The structure of the robot is divided into three parts, namely,
1. Base Level: The part of the frame which serves as the base plate and is also responsible for housing the wires and distributing the power equally to all the components. This level is required to be sturdy as it bears the whole weight of the robot and four heavy position encoder motors. The base plate is laser cut according to the suitable arrangement of wheel configuration (X-config) out of 8mm thick Acrylic sheet. Acrylic helps in being a non-conductive base and prevents any kind of short circuit. The power supply is fed into the board from a 4500 mAh 20C discharge rate, LiPo battery and is distributed to two LM2596’s for Step-Down conversion and one Buck Boost Convertor for Step-Up conversion. Microcontroller is powered through a 12V supply that is given by the Buck Boost supply.
2. Middle Level: This plate houses the microcontroller and the Dot Board for componential power supply (12V, 5V and GND connection). It also houses the motor drivers for the motors responsible for Arm Extension, Elevator plate and Claw Action. myRIO: MyRIO is a real-time embedded evaluation board made by National Instruments. It is used to develop applications that utilize its on-board FPGA and microprocessor. It requires LabVIEW. The controller has been used for all the processes in the robot. Mobility is managed by setting the input pins high/low from Hercules Lite Driver.
3. Elevator Level: This houses the main manipulator of the robot. The gripper and the arm are supported by clamps and the arm extension takes place as a simple rack and pinion mechanism. The Gripper mechanism works as a Double Rack and Pinion and supports the holding plates from both sides such that minimum and maximum of 6 cms and 19 cms can be covered. The Elevator is supported by a Lead Screw of length of 30 cms making is easy for the bot to cover 25 cms to 45 cms of table height.
This robot competed at the India Skills Nationals 2018 in the Mobile Robotics Skill.

DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACTIVITY AND LOCATION TRACKING WEARABLE DEVICE AND CLASSIFICATION OFSKILL SET FOR EFFECTIVE WORK MONITORING
- The proposed solution can help not only help the villagers follow a more organized work management system through MGNREGA and increase the transparency involved in the process but also help the Government keep track of the workers for day to day jobs assigned.
- Automated system to notify the government official about the worker assigned with the particular task and notify the worker about similar tasks in the neighborhood.

Meeting the Block Development Officer, Mr. Balam Singh (Third from Right) and Mr. Anurag (Third from Left), MGNREGA Coordinator of Dunda Block, Uttarkashi, India
Conducting interviews with a resident of Dunda.
The proposed solution is to develop an automatic mobile robot communication system with an on-board Graphic Processing Unit to identify and detect cracks or any other faults on rail tracks.
Fault, once detected, is reported to the nearest sub-station so that immediate repair can be performed on the marked coordinates.
The proposed model is projected to be compact, cost effective and hence, will be driven on one track.
The robot will have the capability to go on and off track when an incoming train is detected.
The system makes use of image processing techniques to analyse the image of the track and detect cracks. Compact design is achieved by making the robot mobile on only one railway line of the complete track. The simulation of the assembly is done on MATLAB and OpenCV is run on Raspberry Pi for real-time detection through image acquisition. Alerts are sent to the nearest station based on a Xbee Notification System over the communication medium.
