Reliance Communications

•    Performed RF drive testing using Agilent E6474•    Used collected traces to analyze pilot power to optimize neighbor lists.•    Recommended antenna downtilt and power control to minimize pilot pollution.



Wireless Communications
Piezoelectric Igniter based energy harvesting for Wireless Sensors Networks                                              Dec, 2009 •    Investigated energy harvesting technologies for WSNs •    Developed a Piezoelectric pushbutton based energy generator for powering a RF Transmitter.   Implementation and performance evaluation of VoIP in 802.11b WLAN                                                          Apr, 2009 •    Benchmarked the performance of VoIP and Streaming Video over 802.11b WLAN. •    Measured Packet Delay Time and Jitter for different number of clients, background traffic and Signal strength.
Real Time Operating Systems
Real Time Embedded Systems Project                                                                                                      Feb, 2010 •    Built a Temperature Sensor System embedded application using MicroC OS II (RTOS) on Altera DE2 board. •    Interfaced a thermistor and keypad for sensing the ambient temperature and user input respectively. •    Nios II processor was used to calculate the average temperature for user selected granularity. •    Interfaced an Oscilloscope and LCD display to display the analog and digital temperature outputs respectively.
File system implementation                                                                                                                            Dec, 2009 •    Implemented a custom file system using FUSE (Linux kernel extension for writing file related system calls). •    The custom file system was a two level directory system with subdirectories containing regular files. •    User can interact with the file system with standard UNIX/Linux programs in a transparent way.   Linux Kernel programming                                                                                                                                  Oct, 2009 •    Implemented kernel space system calls and user space functions or a simple local message application. •    Used linked lists in the Kernel memory space for storing the messages. •    Used shell scripts to add a lot of messages quickly into the system for testing the developed application.   Transport layer and Routing layer network protocol simulations using C                                                Nov, 2008 •    Implemented a simple and reliable data transfer protocol using Go-back N scheme. •    Implemented distributed asynchronous distance vector routing protocol.
