SDLC & OOD
Bachelor of Engineering Degree Specialized Honours in Computer Engineering
York University Toronto, ON. October 2015
4th year Robotics Project – Supervised by Prof. Minas E. Spetsakis Jan. 2015 – April 2015
Interfaced a CRS A150 robotic arm and a Microsoft LifeCam Studio camera to solve the Tower of Hanoi problem.
Employed inverse kinematics calculations to obtain the camera’s intrinsic matrix which then mapped the points in a 3D environment to points on image frames taken by the camera.
Developed modules to calibrate the camera using the intrinsic matrix modules to detect the tower in location and calculate required orientation to manipulate each cube in the tower.
4th year Engineering Project– Supervised by Prof. John E. Moores Sept. 2014 – May 2015
Created and developed a bathymetry system to calculate the depth and turbidity of a body of water within a $1000.00 budget.
Utilized images caught by a CMOS camera through a custom-made V4L framework to facilitate navigating through obstacles in water.
Designed a control module in C programming language, using GPIO ports on BeagleboneBlack and a Logitech C920 camera.
Developed a Shell Script Daemon to turn the device on automatically and trigger the sensing unit to capture the underwater images.
Translated turbidity calculations from MATLAB to Java for a more effective and compatible performance.
Research Assistant – Supervised by Prof. Andrew W. Eckford May 2013 – Nov. 2014
Designed a sensing mechanism comprised of an Arduino-Uno microcontroller atop of an NXT-built robot with a MQ-3 alcohol sensor embedded into it.
Developed path of changing alcoholic concentration levels in the air for robot to sense, read, and follow.
Converted the alcohol readings from the robot into an electric voltage, which was translated into binary code, and then to the human alphabet to transmit messages without electromagnetic communication.
Device would be used during natural disasters when radio frequency/cellular communication would not be possible.
ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS (cont’d)
Multi-Threaded CPU Scheduler Simulator Design 2013
Developed a program in C- language to simulate CPU scheduling algorithms such as FCFS, RR, and three-level FBQ.
Calculated the average wait time, turnaround time, CPU completion and utilization time, number of context switches during execution, and which process is last to finish based on a given static CPU workload for each algorithm.
Investigated software performance and system behaviour based on the given CPU workload for various control parameters; discovered optimal values for time quantum and an optimal trade-off between average waiting time and number of context switches.
Produced a technical report containing instructions on running the program as well as context of various tests performed to achieve optimal time quantum, and provided mathematical reasoning to justify trade-off decisions.
