Evolutionary Techniques for Test Scheduling in 2D/3D Circuits

Location: IIT Kharagpur

Modern chips consist of 100s of cores varying in size and complexity. After manufacturing of the chip, all cores need to be tested under various constraints as fast as possible. This problem is amplified further in 3D ICs. In this work, we explore if evolutionary algorithms such as Particle Swarm Optimization can be used to schedule testing the cores in parallel and minimize test time without violating constraints. We show an improvement of 51% over the SOTA.

Kontiki Headset - A Secure Computing Platform

Location: Bangalore, India

Kontiki Headset is a mixed reality headset for secure file sharing, messaging and video streaming that uses iris recognition to authenticate users and encrypt data. The proof-of-concept prototype consisted of a mobile device acting as the main OS, a Raspberry Pi with integrated camera, IR LEDs and proximity sensor sensor for iris recognition. User’s personal mobile device acted as a remote controller for controlling mouse and keyboard on the headset. All devices communicated over Wi-Fi. I worked on assembling the prototype from scratch, writing the Raspberry Pi code and the Android code for both mobile devices.

Estimato - An Automated Checkout Solution for Fruits/Vegetables

Location: Bangalore, India

Standardization in weights and packaging of items has saved us an incredible amount of effort and time. But this practice of manually weighing and calculating price is still followed while buying items like fruits and vegetables. Estimato is designed to replace the human at the counter with a computer that determines labels the items using a camera and simultaneously calculates the weight, thus generating the overall bill. Estimato was shortlisted for the finals of a hackathon organized by the Government of Rajasthan, India.
