Projects

During Masters 2015-2017

  • FPGA implementation with VGA out , keyboard and a self designed ALU with square root functionality in FPGA nexys 4 Board.
  • ASIC workflow and used it to design a Matrix multiplication. 
  • Layout design in Cadence 


During Bachelors 2008 to 2012 arranged in the chronological order.

  • PhotoRobot August 2009 to Present Members: Arun J.raj, jayakrishnan

PhotoRobot was a simple bot that was designed with multiple LDR sensors that help it to navigate to the place with brightest light. I designed the firmware, simulated the design in Proteus and implemented the bot in a breadboard.

  • Stenography using DWT transform Members: Arun J.raj, Vivek, Akash, vishnu yeshodar 

The idea behind the project was to implement stenography using DWT transform db6 and embed a secret message in an image file. I contributed to this project by implementing the transform and simulating stenography in Matlab.

  • Elderly aid using Zigbee Members: Arun J.raj, Dinesh Parvathaneni

To help Elderly to interact with home such as open/ locking the door , alarm for help , and other basic necessities in a wearable form.

  • VANET based secure network to locate vehicle Members: Arun J.raj, Anand mohan, Abhijith, Gayathri Narayanan

This was used to locate and gather the status of vehicles without using GPS or GSM networks securely. i simulated the VANETS networks in NS-3 with AODV routing and was involved with designing and managing the project , implemented the firmware for the controller that stays in the vehicle to acquire the status and interfacing and lastly Implemented RSA algorithm and street simulation in Matlab.

  • KL transform of a image Members: Arun J.raj I implemented the SCILAB code to compress a given image
