  13. In addition to these I have been involved in directing the students registered in a Software Engineering course taught by Prof. Pankaj Jalote towards developing the software for the JEE application processing. This software was used in JEE 1999 and JEE 2000. Substantial modifications to these were used in JEE 2001, GATE 1999, GATE 2000 and other examinations.
  14. VLSI course Design and Course ware for VLSI related courses for Control-net India Pvt. Ltd. Goa, Rs. 3.00 Lakhs.
  15. Smart Card Operating Systems and Applications. Several projects worth close to Rs. 90.00 Lakhs. The smart cards are the security devices that implement secure data storage, cryptographic operations without compromising the keys, access control and authentication. I have been involved in the development of the Indian standard for Operating Systems for Smart cards (www.scosta.gov.in) known as SCOSTA. There are two specialized versions of this operating systems once primarily for low cost contact applications while the other one a more comprehensive once suited for low-cost contact applications, contactless applications and a combination of contact and contactless interfaces. Some of the applications that were developed and standardized for the operations in the country include, driving licenses, vehicle registration certificates, national ID and electronic passport.
  16. Smart Card Devices. A few projects are initiated in this area to define standardized and secure smart card terminals and hand-held devices for use in applications on the field. These devices can be used in applications ranging from police, various authorities and immigrations etc.
  17. RFID applications and technologies. In this area, there are two major projects to use RFID in the postal bag tracking and electronic file tracking. In this projects, we are working on a reader-neutral mechanism to define a middle ware and use it for tracking the tagged files electronically
