Amit Bhardwaj

I am a PhD student in the Electrical Engineering department at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. I am working under the guidance of Prof.Subhasis Chaudhuri and Prof.Onkar Dabeer in the area of haptics.

Topic of my Phd thesis is "Analysis of perception of haptic force signals." I record human haptic responses for several types of haptic force signals, and analyze them for the purpose of haptic data compression. I use machine learning techniques for the analysis of the recorded response.


I did my B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering from YMCAIE, Faridabad in 2009. Afer that, i joined Delhi College of Engineering, and did my masters in Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2011 from there. In July 2011, i joined IIT Bombay as research scholar in the department of Electrical Engineering.
