Abid Rahman Kodakkadan
CEO at BiteCoin
Research interests include Astrophysics, quantum computing, blockchain development, smart contracts and oracle authenticity, blockchain as a community development initiative, blockchain as a governmental record, blockchain to optimize trajectory planning for UAVs. Started a company to implement optimization and modelling on-the-blockchain and integrate into daily usecases. Reseach Expertise includes Space technology with a focus on control and automation, blockchain optimization techniques, blockchain and smart contracts coding and deployment, fault tolerant control and FTC guarantees, fault modelling and switching control, model optimization and trajectory planning, platoon formation, aeronautics and autonomous control, scientific computing, application-level embedded electronics, FTC on systems with MatLab and Simulink, stabilization and model predictive control of unstable systems. Founder of BiteCoin Network which implements optimization algorithms based on AI and smart learning to optimize on-demand food delivery service. It makes use of live traffic data assimilation techniques to find optimal trajectory for food (or any other) delivery. As a simple usecase which can attract possibly a large audience, BiteCoin is seen a game changer. Apart from the knowledge curve it provides to the public because of the cryptocurrency, it also plays a vital role in its implementation of deterministic fault tolerant control techniques. Published several papers on FTC based optimization and believe this can be smoothly implemented on the blockchain as a disruption to online monitoring and model optimization. Dual MS in Space Science and Technology. Doctoral research in University of Paris-Saclay in Automation and Control. Published several papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences on Fault Tolerant Control, Invariant-set based Fault Tolerance guarantees and Switching-stable control techniques. Doctoral research on topics of fault, fault-tolerance, fault-modelling and tolerant guarantees in complex cyber-physical systems with application including in autonomous aerial vehicles and diver-less cars. Research work includes, creating optimizing different mathematical system models and to e sure their fault tolerance guarantees by state-of-the-art tools in FTC called "invariant set methods". Building, coding, implementing and testing fault-tolerant-guaranteed control mechanism on a switching-stable ball-plate autonomous system. Post-graduate engineer with a Joint European Dual Master in Space Science and Technology. An aeronautical engineering graduate with specialization in dynamics and control of flight and space systems. Also worked for a robotics company in charge of automated control systems in a small scale. Worked under CNRS, France in IRAP (Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie, Toulouse) with Dr Jean Pierre in the CTA (Cherenkov Telescopic Array) project. Managed a project in Julius-Maximilian University of Wuerzburg, Germany, to successfully develop and test a CanSat (Satellite that would fit into a bubble and doing simulated microgravity tests by air pumps). Project manager and responsible for the electronics subsystem of the satellite including control mechanisms for the motor, power supply and attitude control. In Sweden, worked on Radar Communication and Spacecraft Electronics modules involving CMOS arrays and radar based observation experiments. Has education and career experience in a wide range of countries and cultures including India, Qatar, Germany, Sweden, UK, France and Spain.
