Inter-Vehicle Communication (IVC) is an emerging field that is opening up new possibilities
in traffic management. One of the main applications of IVC is in the dissemination of traffic
congestion information. In such applications, each vehicle plays a part in sensing and
distributing congestion information, promoting a decentralised approach to traffic
management. This research aims to explore the effectiveness of such an approach through
simulation. Additionally, the simulation allows for the exploration of alternative information
dissemination strategies that do not restrict a decentralised congestion information system to
implementation specific solutions. In this respect, this paper differs from current research, in
that it explores IVC from the point of view that a true decentralised congestion information
system should be scalable and adaptable. In light of this, a visualisation strategy is developed
for the dissemination of IVC based congestion information.

Provided hardware and network support to TCS staff and clients during initial term as a trainee
Outcome
Exposed to core IT best practices on Hardware, Networking and Software Development
Understood networking and data center activities in the context of enterprise systems
Gained confidence to design, integrate and architect sytems using Java middleware
Learnt to work with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds
Worked on two of India's first online systems - BSEwebx (the online stock portal for the Bombay Stock exchange) and TIN (Tax Information Network) which regularly gets mentioned in newspapers even today and also won the award for “The most outstanding project of National Importance” in 2005

Managed offshore delivery of a project (£150 K) for PwC. Project delivered on the .Net 3.5 platform. Adopted the agile methodology during the build phase of the project
Designed a multithreaded file server using .Net 3.5 web services with authentication through an XML Gateway (a first time implementation according to CISCO)
Client Served (offshoring)
May '08 - Aug '09 PriceWaterhouseCoopers
Experience Gained
Outcome
First time as a manager, I gained substantial exposure to management best-practices, quality processes and underwent Leadership training through the Infosys Leadership Institute
Gained exposure to offshoring from the pioneers of the Global Delivery Model widely acclaimed and publicised in Thomas Friedman's book 'The World is Flat'
Personal growth
Got an opportunity to live and work in my hometown (Mangalore - coastal city often mistaken for Bangalore)
Drove 50 miles for 2 hours everyday in a hilly environment to and from work listening to audiobooks and catching up on music
Read over 15 biographies and self-improvement books
TCS and Infosys are the top two home-grown IT companies in India. TCS, in many ways, is considered the pioneer of the IT industry in India and prior to the strong growth of the indian IT sector through offshoring, was focussed on providing consulting to domestic and international clients.

In 1999, when I joined TCS, it was 7000 people strong. It grew to 120,000 people by 2009. Infosys follows with a 100,000 head-count competing with international organisations such as Accenture and IBM.

I started my career with TCS at the Corporate Headquarters data-center in Mumbai, as a Hardware Engineer on 22 November 1999. Fixing hardware problems for and being around the CEO, Vice Presidents, the Chairman and the Chairman of the TATA Group was in retrospect one of the biggest exposures I got.
GIS and product development
In 2003, while in America, I was exposed to a wealth of information about places mostly through maps and also took to a wide range of outdoor activities in Denver. A keen interest in maps and an urge to get back to University lead me to discover Geographical Information Systems.

In 2004, I enrolled in the University of Edinburgh's GIS programme considered to be one of the best of its kind in Europe with a 5* research rating.

In 2005, while I was studying at Edinburgh, Google released Google maps (pioneering web 2.0 'slippy maps' and showcasing what used to be a very niche technology via Google Earth)
City of Edinburgh Council (CEC), Edinburgh, UK
