Career and Academic Background before TAOYAKA Program

I pursued my bachelors degree in Electronics And Telecommunication Engineering from Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University in 2014. During my academic year I always wanted to be a good leader and a good speaker. For that I usually take part in cultural and technical activities to enhance my personality. I am also interested in sports activities like badminton, chess, swimming. I have also participated in chess tournaments during my academic years.

Research Plan in TAOYAKA Program

The purpose of this research is to develop digital sensing systems and processing technologies to control various rehabilitation systems such as actuated wheel chair, treatment beds, body supporting exoskeletons and social-places-automations such as wheel chair lifting mechanisms mounted-stairs, people mover, etc. Now a days, developing countries like India, China are also considering social systems for all the levels of the societies and life-ease systems for physically challenging people. Currently there are various such a type of supporting systems available in the market but most of them are hand driven interface such as push or touch buttons, proximity sensors, and joysticks. Aesthetically and practically these systems are successful human interfaces but not considering actual human understanding or training and particular human identification.  

Voice recognition can be used for various applications such as health monitoring in disadvantaged area for logging patient’s health status, voice guided systems. We can use voice assisted navigation system for the blind people and tourist to help them to navigate while roaming around historical sites. Interactive voice response (IVR) system can be used for rural education programs. It also can be used to provide medicine assistant to patients. That means there is a demand of voice activated control systems in our societies for easy and peaceful living.

Career Plan after TAOYAKA Program

Taoyaka Program is the best platform where I could make my future out of it. Because it is a amalgamation of technical, cultural and social implementation courses. Technically after Taoyaka Program I would like to implement my knowledge for social welfare especially in disadvantaged areas. I would like to grab job opportunities after my studies. I would like to be a professor in later years.
