Research Areas and Interests
My primary area of research is "Failure Resilience and Energy Minimization in Multi-Robot Payload Transport Systems". This essentially involves developing a cooperative multi-agent motion planning scheme to minimize total energy usage of a multi-robot system. Such a scheme is developed using Multi-Agent Scheduling and Task Allocation and Machine Learning Algorithms. I have spent about 2 years in IIIT Hyderabad and based on my research and courses taken, I can summarize my areas of interest as follows:
- Multi-Robot Systems
- Multi-Agent Systems
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Motion Planning of Mobile Robots
Research, Publications and Projects
I completed my honors project for Bachelor of Engineering as an Intern at Intel, Bangalore for 6 months, where I developed an Intrusion Detection and Alert System on a SoC for use in Home Automation Security Systems. I then worked at IIIT-Hyderabad as a Research Assistant under the guidance of Prof.Kamalakar Karlapalem in developing specifications for a multi-robot system for heavy payload transport.NOTE: Click on the icons below for a description of the project

Intrusion Detection System for Home Automation is a facial recognition based security system. The system setup has low power consumption and is inexpensive. It can be installed in any indoor environment. This system was developed on a low cost Embedded SoC and uses sensors and cameras to classify an individual as an intruder or non-intruder using machine learning/facial recognition algorithms.
June 2014 - December 2014
Design of Robots for an Autonomous Multi-Robot Payload Transport System capable of pulling loads exceeding 100 lbs. Control of robots was achieved using Beaglebone and Arduino.The focus of the Research Assistantship was to develop explore and identify state-of-the-art robot-payload-transport systems and design a multi-robot payload transport sytem as a research platform. This helped me in getting myself familiarized with multi-robot systems, robot design and development and ultimately guided me to identify my topic for research at IIIT-Hyderabad.
My schooling till engineering was in schools and colleges of Bangalore. I pursued my Bachelor of Engineering in Telecommunications at PES Institute of Technology(now PES University) which is one of the best colleges in Bangalore. I decided to pursue research in Robotics and Artificial Intellingence after completion of B.E. I am currently in IIIT-Hyderabad pursuing Ph.D. in Computer Science.NOTE: Click on the icons below for a description of the degree
