“Knowledge is most useful when liberated and shared”

It was the beginning of 2014 when during my final year project I got the opportunity to work with sensors. I was always fascinated by seeing doors getting closed without manual effort, and I wanted to contribute in the field of Internet of Things. My dream was fulfilled when my college gave me the opportunity to create an end-to-end sensor enabled cloud based system in the DRDO funded lab. It was a very hard journey as these devices worked beautifully when they were standalone but it was difficult to make them work together. I wanted to form a channel of networks with these nodes so that data can be sent in a multi-hop network from source to sink. After 6 months of research and numerous lines of code defying protocols we were able to achieve the desired functionality. During this process I realized the bigger picture and devised an architecture(KGSAN) as an engineering principle to help other developers achieve this. The methodology was liked by many researchers from IIT and IISC and hence I decided to file a patent for the same. I was successful in showing varied use cases of the product by creating multiple applications using the KGSAN architecture. After this research journey I received an offer to contribute in a book “Cyber Physical Systems-A computational Perspective” published by CRC press, Taylor and Francis Group US. The book is about Cyber Physical Systems and aimed at the networking of distributed sensors to manage a range of physical processes. I co-authored chapters on my innovation in the book. The chapters are titled as “Beyond Sensor Networks and embedded systems” and “Smart System design in Cyber Physical Systems”. My patent and invented application is cited as a motivating example in the field of wireless sensing. I have always believed in sharing knowledge and in future will contribute in more innovations. I would like to share this book with my colleagues at SAP Labs as ” A Research is incomplete if others cannot be motivated to invent something better”
