Shorya Awtar's M.S. Research
Mechatronics Research Group, RPI
Research in the Mechatronics Group at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is led by Prof. Kevin Craig, and is primarily focused on industrial and educational mechatronic systems. Research projects for the industry generally comprise of motion and vibration control in xerographic machines, high-speed document handling machines and other electromechanical systems. Educational projects carried out in the lab typically involve balancing (stabilization) of open-loop unstable systems, for example, ball-on-plate balancing system, inverted pendulum balancing systems, inverted pyramid balancing etc. I was associated with this group from 01/1999 to 08/2000. The following pages contain information on some of the projects that I worked on during this period.
