I am an undergraduate student studying Mechanical Engineering at BITS,Pilani Goa Campus and just finished my studies of second year. I am interested in the fields of Computer Vision, Image Processing, Machine Vision, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Automation. I have studied Electronics as a vocational course for two years. I have good knowledge of coding in C, C++ and Python. I am an open source contributor. My proposal was selected in Google Summer of Code 2012, which is a global platform that offers students stipend to write code for open source projects. I am doing my SoC with SimpleCV which is an open source framework for Computer Vision. I am highly inclined towards contributing to Open Computer Vision (OpenCV) and also other open source projects. Recently, I have ported OpenTLD to python with the help of George Nebehay’s OpenCV(C++) version of OpenTLD. I’m currently making a wrapper using Boost::Python to wrap few functionalities of OpenCV to Python.
Being a Linux enthusiast, I like to fiddle around with it. I am currently using Ubuntu and Arch Linux.
I have good knowledge of gtk/pygtk and started with PyQt4. I have developed a GUI in pygtk to interact with some of the functions of openCV.
