Rohith Revindran, M. Sc.
Having done a very well appreciated thesis work during the bachelors, Rohith Revindran was motivated to pursue a career in Signal Processing, especially for Antennas. The desire of the said career interest led him to pursue M.Sc in Communication Engineering at Technical University of Munich (TUM). Alongside with the master studies, a team who work on 60 GHz Radar systems at Infineon Technologies AG offered him a student job where he could learn more on the topic he has been interested since 2013. Rohith completed two years at Infineon as a working student / intern / master thesis student, ready to step up to implement and continue learning the field he has been excited for the past seven years.
While working as a working student at Infineon Technologies AG, Munich, Rohith performed the following tasks for his team:
- Automation of anechoic chamber for characterization of transmitter and receivers of the radar system designed at 60GHz
- Automation of performance test to detect single target by the radar systems
- Enhancing the features of the Anechoic chamber using Gimbal setup
- Flashing firmware to the radar system boards and performing initial tests
- Helping other teams working at different frequency to setup their measurement
Rohith completed his internship under the same team at Infineon. The internship was titled: “Modeling of Configurable FMCW Radar for Range-Doppler Mapping ”. Later, the internship work was extended as his master thesis topic: “System Simulation and Modeling of Integrated Radar System at Millimeter Waves ”.
The team at Infineon Technologies suggested him to extend his master thesis work to implement a System-level Simulation for Radar Systems. During the master thesis, the simulator was implemented in MATLAB. There were a lot of challenges faced. Some of them were due to the limitations in the software. So during the initial months of his research work, he has implemented a similar simulator in SystemVue, after learning the software from scratch. Overall aim of his research continues to be able to visualize most of the effects that are noticed in real radar systems using system level simulations.
Along with interest in Radar Systems, Rohith is also interested in wireless sensor networks (WSN) since his master studies. During the laboratory course in WSN, his team worked on a project “Smart Helmets for Safety in Mining Industry”. Monitoring and reduction of the number of casualties and providing immediate help to the miners in distress were the main goals of this project. Programming wireless sensor network, proactive routing, graphical user interface and alarm systems were some of the main tasks taken up during the project. This work was presented in International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2018) and later published in IEEE Xplore with Electronics ISBN: 978-1-5386-5314-2 and Print-on Demand (PoD) ISBN: 978 -1-5386-5315-9.
