ACADEMIC PROJECTS:

Development of a Control System Model for Autonomous Driving using Feedback Linearization and Supervisory Motion Control

• Derived nonlinear bicycle model using kinematics and dynamics analysis of the vehicle.

• Designed autonomous vehicle control system for successful longitudinal and lateral motion of the vehicle

• Trajectory planning algorithms have been generated which are used to track desire path autonomously

• Motion Planning, Behavior Planning and Simulation model have been developing for autonomous vehicle in highly dynamic scenarios

Autonomous Luggage Cart [Aug ’17 – Dec ‘17]

• Performed Customer Need Analysis, Concept Generation, Function Modeling and House of Quality as a part of Product Development Process

• Developed mathematical model of Autonomous Luggage Cart and designed PID controller with schematic diagram to control maneuvering of the robot which follows a person.

• Built small experimental prototype of the product by using L298N H-bridge, GPS, DC & Servo Motors, Arduino and Simulink Interface.

Control System Design and Tuning for Hard Disk Drives Micro-Actuator Servo System

• Obtained Frequency Response Data (FRD) Model of all plants implementing data-driven system method

• Reduced the vibrations of the system and suppressed the resonance modes from the signal by designing digital PI servo controller with notch filters.

• Succeed in achieving five out of six controller design objectives by hand tuning of notch filters’ parameters

• Improved stability, robustness and performance of the system. Evaluated the system in z-domain as well as in time- domain & plotted sinusoidal trajectory tracking result

Design and Analysis of a Quadcopter
