Mechanical Subsystem Head
Mars Rover Team, IIT Bombay • June 2017 - present
Member of a diverse team of 20 students working to develop technologies for interplanetary missions and to participate in University Rover Challenge 2019 (Utah, USA) • Devised the passive Rocker Bogie suspension considering weight, cost, strength and manufacturing process • Working on a new design of suspension to enhance the performance of the previous rocker-bogie design • Performed calculation for suspension members and simulated its kinematics in ADAMS • Analyzing the design of suspension by performing Static Structure Analysis on ANSYS WORKBENCH using the method of Finite Element Analysis • Acquired hands-on experience of fabrication and assembly of rover-suspension.
Mechanical Core Team Member
Ornithopter-Project • May 2019 - December 2019
• Worked with a team of 6 members dedicated to fabricating an Ornithopter, whose wings spanned 3m • Rebuilt the CAD design to accommodate the necessary modifications for smooth fabrication • Supervised the manufacturing and assembly of the individual parts to construct the master assembly • Incorporated wing twisting mechanism along with wing flapping mechanism to generate more lift • Designed and fabricated testing mount to measure lift and thrust generated by combined flapping motion
Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay
