Bachelors of Technology in Aerospace

Amity Institute of Space Sciences and Technology

Bachelors in Aerospace & Avionics, with distinction.

A Head nounted cueing system for Fighter Aircrafts where the HMD designs must sense the elevation, azimuth and tilt of the pilot's head relative to the airframe with sufficient precision. Made the use of Optical Tracking along with Direct retinal projection. We prepared a Aircraft Helmet Model with HMD and tracking technologies where InfraRed sensors were used for motion sensing, distance measurement, servo and angle control and Retina detection was performed using MATLAB. Performed the simulation in MATLAB as well.
