2021-2022 Covariant AI
Lead integrations on-site between the AI core and the application side, that includes robotic arms, optical systems, conveyors and PLCs.
Own system performance, and task engineering teams in Berkeley and China with critical action items.
Created new processes to pull down calibration lead times from 3 weeks to 3 days.
Developed realtime support system and integrations for bot tenders using the robot stations.
Maintain customer relationship, understand pinpoints and translate it to new features.
Create experiments and analyze data to validate hypothesis on root causes of low performance scenarios.
2020 Deep Reinforced Learning Nano Degree - Udacity
2018-2021 Misty Robotics - Robotics/Prototyping Engineer
It is all in the details. I have brought in many ideas, prototyped them which later got pushed into production. Got my hands on a range of things here.
Sweet Robot Misty!
Always very close to my heart.
2018 MERL - Internship
[NO PICTURES - ALL CONFIDENTIAL]
Extremum seeking multi agent system's centralized implementation on wheeled robot.
Worked closely with Dr. M. Benosman at MERL.
2018 Deep Learning Nano Degree - Udacity
2018 Masters in Mechatronics and Robotics
NYU !! Great exposure to tools and people of NYC. The energy flow is nonstop. The city helped highlighted my interested in interaction design.
Lots of work on numerous projects with
Dr. Vikram Kapila and Dr. Ludovick Righetti in control systems, Prof. Mark Cutkosky from NYU Megnet on AR/VR Projects and Steve Kuyan on Entrepreneurship.
2018 Sphero Swarm Implementation
I built this swarming system with Spheros.
This is one of my favorite projects that I ever built.

2015 iOS App Tag
What to do after taking an online course on iOS development... Build an app.
What do build? Picked something I thought would handy.
Had this available in the app store for a couple years. This app lets users create their own keyboard full of shortcuts.
Plus I also made this video 📽

2014 Exploring Neural Data - Brown University - Coursera
2014 Machine Learning - Andrew Ng's on Coursera
2014 Mechanical Behavior of Materials - MIT - EdX
2014 Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering (Sandwich)
Curiosity on how to design and build things got me to pick Mechanical Engg.
Sandwich here is a special 5 year - highly practical program in contrast to the regular 4 year program. The course work is split equally between class room and real industry / manufacturing plant / foundry floors. Coimbatore is a a city in Tamil Nadu with abundance of manufacturing facilities. PSG Tech has partnered with many and also owns quiet a bit to let us spend half of everyday in an actual factory floor. These learning were very valuable and have high impact on my design approach.
2013 CAD/CAE/CAM in Catia - Dassault Systems 120 Hrs
2012 First Assembly Animation
All time Autodesk Inventor/Fusion fan!
2012 Apple remote to control lights
2011 Color Sensor - White LED + LDR
Wow, I was into Physics even in 2011.
Learnt that that light can change resistance. Different colors absorb white light to different levels and a correlation exists between reflected lumes vs color.
No ML then, hard coded dumb color detector. Works :D
Two concentric tubes with outer enclosed section housing white LEDs and inner enclosed section housing an LDR.
This could have been 'Spec Drums'!
