Academic Projects:

Hand Gesture Based Robotic Arm control using FPGA

The static hand gesture is recognized and processed by using Odroid XU4 and Open CV. Based on the recognized Hand Gestures, Servo motors in the 5 DOF Robotic Arm will be controlled simultaneously to perform pick and place operations efficiently and precisely using Xilinx Zedboard FPGA.

Autonomous Gardening Robot – ALIVE

An Autonomous robot which assists the farmer by Identifying and checking the plants using Neural Networks and its habitats by watering it, pouring pesticides and forecasts the yield rate and weather using IOT and Raspberry Pi.

6 Legged Walking Hexapod for border surveillance and security

The robot has 18 servo motors comprising of six legs, is used for walking in all terrain. It is controlled by servo controller and Arduino. Raspberry Pi is mounted on the bot for detecting human and sending an image to the security via SMS using Vision based Machine learning and IOT.

Voice Controlled Biped Walking Robot

A Biped robot  that can walk and perform other activities based on the voice command given by the user using an Android application and Arduino. It is a 6 Degrees of Freedom robot made of high torque servo motors making it easier to waking forward, backward and some postures.

Vision based Surveillance system using Machine learning and IOT

Face Detection & Recognition is done using Vision based Machine learning algorithm (HOG), by which unauthorized user on the PC will be identified and an image will be sent to the user via SMS.

Home Automation using LABVIEW

The project is a sophisticated model in which various appliances in a home can be controlled using LabVIEW. The project incorporates unique automation by controlling it through a central server and also by Voice.

Home Automation using Internet of Things.

Home Appliances can be controlled using a website from anywhere using Raspberry Pi and WebioPi.

Humanoid Robot (5 – Feet)

5 – Feet Humanoid robot with 16 DOF controlled by Arduino Mega, which can perform operations like walking forward & performing Postures.

Hobby Projects:

Environmental Sound Monitoring usind Deep Learning:

Using Urban Sound dataset, created a Recurrent Neural Network for detecting and classifying environmental sounds. Feature extraction done using Librosa and Network build using Keras/Tensorflow

Detection of automatic counting of Indian Coins

Hand curated dataset for the Indian coins. Using Watershed algorithm to detect coins and using Logistic regression to classify different coins and eventually calculated the sum of Rupees. Used OpenCV and SKlearn.

Mask Detection using Deep learning based Object Detection

To check whether a person is wearing a mask or not. Used Haar Cascade to detect face and created a Convolution Neural Network for classifying face with and without mask. Used Keras/Tensorflow and OpenCv.

Sign Language for Deaf and Dumb

Created a live detection of Hand Sign Language from webcam, by curating a dataset and trained it using Random Forest. Used OpenCV and SKlearn.

Face Emotion Recognition using CNN

Used FER Dataset and created a VGG based Convolution Neutral  Network to train different emotions. And by detecting face using haar cascades in real time and saying the emotion of the person.  Used Keras/Tensorflow and OpenCV.
