Name : Dhiraj Jadhao.
Info. : He likes to think of himself as a hardcore maker. He loves to tinker with both hardware and software and derives deep satisfaction in combining his electronics background with iOS development. RF communication is a subject very close to his heart and he has dabbled in aeromodelling, RC aircraft and UAVs like quadrotors before the Internet of Things and home automation piqued his interest. He is actively involved in almost all open source hardware and software activities happening in India and became one of the first active members of the IOT-Pune group that eventually brought him to RHC. He was involved in NASA’s Curiosity Mars Mission Project and responsible for designing data transmission module which was completed successfully in 2012.
He’s the currently Chief Embedded Systems Engineer at Revealing Hour Creations and President at iArduino Workplace.
Q1. What is TAH ?
Tah is an open source development board that helps you create your own projects that can connect to your smart phone, laptop, or desktop via Bluetooth low energy. Its frugal power requirements and onboard USB open up a wide array of applications that weren’t previously possible. With the power and flexibility of Tah, it’s now easier than ever to connect your smart devices to everything around you!
Bluetooth Low Energy + Beacon
iOS and Android Libraries
Open source throughout
This powerful combination allows Arduino applications to be controlled directly using your smartphone – your phone’s built-in accelerometer, gyroscope, and other sensors can directly trigger events in the physical world!
Tah is a LEGO block for enabling the Internet of Things.
As an engineer i have seen how beginner get directionless when he wants to start with some project. In tech world having knowledge of specific things only doesn’t work out and therefore one should have the ability or expertise in all aspects. Instead of focussing on single application i wanted to create a strong platform which will have completely open source infrastructure and which should not be only focussed on either hardware or software but on both at the same time. “Smart Devices” specifically “Smartphone” has became a part of our life now and everyone need control over information and things from that single device and this is how i came up with Tah.
Q3. How your product affects society ?
As prototyping time and cost gets reduce because of the resources and support available behind Tah, Everyone can develop amazing application which will bring dumb physical things around us on network and let them interact with the real world.Q4. What resources you used and how you found them ?
