Steer-by-Wire Prototype Development This interdisciplinary project aims at developing a low-cost and fault
tolerant Steer- by-Wire system, which would successfully
replace conventional mechanical or power steering.

Some Projects at IIT (Masters):
Master Degree Project:
Design of an electronic K-wire tension meter to
be used with the existing tensioner for Ilizarov method.
Description: Bone is oriented according to the stress
being applied. Using this principle, bone deformation can be corrected by following Ilizarov method. For correcting different
types of deformity, there is a need to apply force in different directions and planes. So, a reference frame is necessary.
For making the frame rigid and stable, the K-wire (used in Ilizarov method) should be tensed. But, due to mechanical slippage,
orientation of wire, load and temperature the value (tension) may be altered. After optimizing the K-wire tension value, a
K-wire tensioner was made which will show the applied tension digitally. The tensioner would be made automatic by using a
high tension low speed dc motor.
Mini Project (M.Tech)
Design of FIR and to study their filtering properties.
Brief Description: The designing is done with
XILINX software and the hardware comprises of A/D and D/A converter sample and hold circuit etc. The study of the filter properties
and the calculation of the order of the filters and their co-efficient being done by MATLAB.
