・affiliation :IIT Madras
・duration :May 13-July19, 2019
・program :Prof. Yoshihiro Suda's laboratory, ESEP-INDIA 2019

I am very lucky to have got the opportunity to participate in ESEP2019. The program was absolutely amazing. I got to work in a project very relevant to my research area. I was assigned to the Suda lab in IIS- Institute of Industrial Sciences, University of Tokyo. The lab is concerned with research on vehicle dynamics and control. My project was based on Analysis of VD parameters for PUVs with respect to Autonomous Truck Platoons. It was a National Project under Energy ITS. The project gave me a very good idea about graduate research. Also I did learn a lot about VD and Truck Platooning. The research consisted of both, Experiments and Software based Analysis. My tutor, Dr. Shimono had been a very integral support throughout. He encouraged me with important research papers and made sure I learnt new concepts. He was always there to clear all my doubts. Professor Suda too had been very supportive throughout. He made sure I was assigned to a project of my interest and also reviewed my project giving some advice on new approaches. I owe a huge thanks to him for alloting me a project of National importance. It has been a wonderful experience overall. There were no financial constraints whatsoever. Tokyo as a city has totally dazzled me. It is perhaps the best city in the world in terms of automation technology engineering citylife hygiene sanitation and safety. Everything is so organised disciplined and clean. The people here are so cordial and helpful. Life in tokyo is just amazing. Lastly I would like to express my sincere gratitute to UTOKYO for giving me this chance. The professors incharge and the secretaries have been very cooperative in every way possible. There were multiple interative sessions and international get togethers that were organised for the interns which helped us learn a lot about Japan culture as well. Having worked under Professor Suda and having received so much support as an UG researcher, I sincerely look forward to pursue graduate studies in UTOKYO and also a nice future in the beautiful city of Tokyo.
