The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur is one of the premier institutions
established by the Governmnet of India to develop excellence in technical
education, research and training. To meet rapidly changing current and future
needs of the society the Institute participates in a major way in national
endeavours in technology and science. I have done my postgraduation at IIT
Kanpur from civil engineering department. My field of specialization is
Transportation Systems Engineering.
The Institute presently offers educational programmes at Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral levels in various branches of technology and science. The central computing facility houses HP Supermini computers, Convex Computer and range of Workstations and PC`s connected to Local Area Network. Terminal Servers located in different buildings in the academic area and departmental computing resources are also connected to campus LAN. The central library has large collection of technical books and journals.
IIT Kanpur is located in a residencial campus on G.T. Road about 10 Km. west of Kanpur. Halls of Residence, Faculty and Staff houses, Community facilites are located arround the academic area where educational, administrative and research facilites are located. The Institute today has arround 1200 undergraduate and 800 post-graduate students and a faculty of about 330.
The project work involves study of different parameters and aspects of road system like Capacity and Level of Service analysis of highways. The complexity of modern traffic system management strategies often require that predictive modeling studies be conducted prior to the implementation of any strategy. Simulation has been recognized since long as a powerful problem solving technique. A simulation model was initially developed by the VTI(Institute of Swedish Transportation Officials ) and later Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in collaboration with the scientists of VTI modified the model. The version of the model is currently known as the Indo Swedish Traffic Simulation Model.
The simulation model takes advantage of Object Oriented Programming, which is a powerful feaure of SIMULA programming language. The program and data structure are based on the Jackson Structured Programming technique and has been programmed in one of the highest level simulation languages i.e., SIMULA 67. Simula has built in features like pseudo-parallel execution that facilitates easy tools for simulation of traffic on the roads. The present work focuses on the application of the Indo Swedish Traffic Simulation Model to determine the capacity and to evaluate level-of-service at various operating conditions of the highways.
I want to render my services in the Information Technolgy field. Software tools have become a way of our life and contribute significantly to master the complexities in the usage and programming of the computer. They are becoming more and more sophisticated and contribute heavily to the improvement of productivity of users and programmers alike. I would like to work for developing application software as well as systems software.
I know the programming languages C++ and Simula'67, the special feature of both of them is their object oriented approach. I have worked with various platforms like Sun Sparc10 (OS4), HP9000 Superminis and Workstations, and PC486. Working Environments that I have worked with are Unix, DOS, Sun Windows, X windows and MS Windows3.1. We, transportation systems engineering guys at IIT Kanpur, are using multimedia tools like Super Video Windows and Aldus Photo Styler for traffic data analysis. Our Transportation lab is equipped with necessary audio and video failities.
