About

Steamroller exists to breathe life into stories, characters, and experiences in visual, physical, and virtual spaces. Each project that comes our way, be it a game, a film, or a theme park ride, exists in its own universe. It is our job to bring this multiverse to life. Our animators build believable characters and whole worlds in a multitude of universes, while our developers manipulate the rules of perception to transport you to a new definition of reality. We relish the opportunity to bring our clients’ universes to life while also developing our own stories.

Project Android Market

EyeRoller: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.cocos2dx.EyeRoller

·    Designed and developed a game based puzzle using cocos2dx game engine.

·    It increases the power of concentration thereby increasing memory.

 

ACADEMIC PROJECTS:
Chess Bot:

·    Understood chess framework and implemented AI algorithm to compute the best possible move.

·    Implemented different searching techniques such as minmax search algorithm with alpha-beta pruning.

SAT Solver:

·    Solved constraint satisfaction problem using DPLL algorithm & implemented using LISP language.

·    Used in geo-searching, locating ideal space for warehouse depending on manufacturing unit and retailer.

Planner:

·    Developed planner using state space planning technique and implemented heuristic search planner.

·    Implemented highly accurate Heuristics and used plan graph to estimate the difficulty of the goal.

Genetic Algorithm:

·    Implemented genetic algorithm based structural search algorithm to evaluate the protein structure.

·    The algorithm search for the minimum energy conformation to draw the best conformation.

Least Commitment Planner:

·    Implemented partially ordered planner to compute the partial order plan(POP) for given situation.

·    This planner makes the planning decision more flexible as it does not restrict the action sequence.

Graph Plan:

· Used STRIP input data and converted it into conjunctive normal form(CNF).

· With the help of DPLL algorithm solved the CNF equation to implement graph Plan algorithm.
