Everyone here is smart, distinguish yourself by being kind

- Bill Venables

Hi! I'm Dhruv.

I am a recently graduated Mechanical Engineer.
I am fascinated by the field of robotics and control.


These are some of the projects that I enjoyed doing. The major gain from these projects was not to only in terms of technical knowledge but also in other aspects such as staying under budget constraints, dividing work in teams, reacting to failures (often times!) and the nights spent at the labs.

Collaborative Autonomous Aerial Robots

Acrylic Bending Machine

Window Cleaning Robot

Robotics Swarm Simulator

Designing and Manufacturing of a Benchtop Wind Tunnel

Designing and Manufacturing of Francis Turbine

Inverse Kinematics of KUKA KR3

Chaotic Analysis of Inverse Pendulum and visualisation of Fractals
