CLASS PROJECTS:

          Power Aware Scheduler: Designed and implemented a power aware operating system. Changes were made to the kernel of the Linux operating system so that it consumes less power. In our approach, we check the process mix (scheduler queue) periodically and if found empty for I/O bound processes, switch off the device for a period of at least one break even time of the device. Having sleep time equal to at least one breakeven time of the I/O device ensures definite improvement in power usage taking into account a good process mix (more I/O bound processes).  (Jan 2002 – Aug 2002, 3 person team)

          Tree Viewer: Designed and implemented a Java application that generates a Tree structure view of a web page. The system works as a plug in any of the currently used browsers like IE or Netscape. It aids the user/humans who are searching for a page on the web, to have a hierarchical view of the web pages so that they can view the structure of the web page and decide whether they want to read the whole page or not. (Jan 2002 – April 2002, 2 person team)

          Intelligent Mail Retrieving System (IMRS): Developed an agent (a Java application) on top of an existing system Visual Knowledge Builder that would help users to organize and maintain e-mails they receive everyday. The system supports both implicit and explicit rule processing for the organization of the incoming mail. (Aug 2001 – Dec 2002, 2 person team)
