Physck is a physical computing platform for developing on-board data science/machine learning applications in connected IoT devices. The internship will involve hands-on contributions to Physck platform. Physck is developed by Dr. Jayaraj Poroor, Professor, Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri. The project is supported by Microsoft Research, Bangalore.
Project Title: System and software for research on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) Description: We have seen numerous innovations and technological advancements in UAV in the recent past. Despite lot of commercial UAVs in the market, a laboratory system for research and development of UAVs is not available. The internship is aimed to upskill students in using hardware in loop (HIL) drone simulation platform compatible with MATLAB. Knowledge Required: Embedded systems Mathematical modelling C programming MATLAB scripting Drivers development.
Project Title: Plastic picking robot Description: Parties and rituals at river bed and beaches are so enchanting. But the plastic that is left over is devastatingly polluting. Project aims to develop a solar powered standalone robot that can navigate on dry river beds and beaches to collect the left over plastics. Knowledge Required: Signal processing Data mining Mechanical modelling and simulation in CAD Power Electronics Embedded systems.
Project Title: Hybrid Prosthetic Knee Joint Description: Cost of fully automated artificial limbs are too high for a common man. Passive limbs are not applicable for an active person. Projects aims to engineer a cost effective microprocessor controlled prosthetic limb for lower limb amputees. Knowledge Required: Mechanical modelling and simulation in CAD Signal processing Data mining Control systems.
Project Title: Self-balancing e-bike Description: Self-balancing bikes are lot more than just fun to drive. You can use them for anything and everything in your normal life. With it, you can travel to work, spunk around the town, or even enjoy Sunday hot-rodding. The aim of this project is to create modular systems to convert a normal bi-cycle to an intelligent self-balancing e-bike. Knowledge Required: Power Electronics and Power systems Navigation and control systems Embedded systems
