Hi! I'm Saksham

I'm a JavaScript Developer, who loves to drive, explore, and enjoy life.

About Me

I'm Saksham Saxena, an Associate Software Developer at BCS Technology, and an alumunus of Delhi Technological University. Passionate about user experience, entrepreneurial in spirit, determined to dissolve complicated problems into discrete steps, and elegant in creating beautiful solutions, I like to write applications driven by JavaScript and Node.js. I've also published a technical paper describing an Automatic Headlight Dipper which works on OpenCV and Raspberry Pi.

They call me an engineer by the formal records and documents, but I have explored and taken thorough interest in numerous verticals and I feel more and more equipped to handle the everyday challenges in life, for today and tomorrow. Western Music, Theatre, Medicine, Anatomy, Psychology, Philanthropy, Economics and Polity, Management, Literature, and Cars; I indulge in these whenever I get time from my technical witchcraft-y projects and hangouts with my loved ones.

Solely driven by the positive energy of the world, I try to utilize every bit of it into creating something meaningful and helpful for everyone. Inclusion, collaboration and teamwork is something I whole heartedly enjoy, encourage and promote whenever I have leadership roles. Managing, leading, and helping fellow colleagues and juniors gives me a sense of responsibilty which I always strive to fulfill sincerely.


Automatic Dipper System in Vehicles

Languages Used : OpenCV (C++)

Built a hardware prototype on Raspberry Pi to process input visual feed from a web cam to detect oncoming high beam and generate a trigger. Applied my knowledge of Linux, various image processing algorithms, and optimization in C++.

IoT Based Parking Assistance System

Languages Used : JavaScript (Node.js)

Built a prototype on Raspberry Pi to map a parking lot and detect filled/vacant spots using IR sensors. This data was served through a Node.js server instance on Pi itself with real-time visualisation support using WebSockets.
