About me

I'm a first year Ph.D. student at the University at Buffalo working with Dr. Karthik Dantu at DRONES Lab. My research interests include simultaneous localization and mapping, autonomous racing and aerial robotics.


OpenMaG — A Simple Gimbal for UAV Mapping

Drones (UAVs) are being used for new applications every day. Most common uses such as photography and cinematography require cameras mounted on the UAVs. These cameras need to be stabilized to compensate for the UAV’s movements and vibrations caused by the motors. Most off-the-shelf camera drones come with 3 Axis gimbals which can stabilize the camera in all 3 axes. In this article....

Rovie — A Continous-Track Autonomous UGV

Rovie is intended to be completely open-source and can be built from scratch using a couple of aluminium extrusions and a desktop FDM printer. With a variable wheelbase and support for various kinds of motors, I’ve tried my best to make Rovie as customisable as possible.....
