Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) (achievements are marked with * ):
ACC extends the conventional cruise control by enabling the vehicle to
automatically flow with the other vehicles in dense traffic while keeping a
safe distance, without any driver intervention.
+ (*) Successfully coordinated the work from customer's location at
Stuttgart, Germany to team at RBIN which resulted in greater volume of high
quality of work flow to team at RBIN with complete customer satisfaction.
+ (*) Developed new concept of Non-Volatile Memory Update Manager (patent
application under scrutiny)
and successfully implemented it.
+ (*) Helped customers in defining technical coordination model, milestones
of different larger software components and in implementation of quality
+ Active participation in requirements definition discussions and new
architecture definition discussions.
+ Were involved in successful development of modules related to Platform
Software of ACC such as Process Control Unit, Long Range Radar scheduler,
etc. The Software Development Life Cycle is followed in the development or
execution of every module.
+ Lead the team of three people for development of different modules. The
On-Time Delivery Quotient and Defect-Free Delivery Quotient were rated as
Dashboard System is a part of the modern Integrated Cockpit Electronics
(ICE) in automobiles. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of Dashboard System
collects and process all the information required from various sensors and
other Electronic Control Units (ECUs).
+ Two modules were handled while working on Dashboard System:
- Design review and Testing of Blinker Module (Live module for training)
- Thermal Oil Level Indicator (Were involved in all the phases of SDLC)
Global Positioning System (GPS):
GPS is a satellite navigation system designed to provide instantaneous
position, velocity and time information almost anywhere on the globe at any
time, and in any weather.
