Default Hello there! :)

Greetings to my fellow BHPians!

I have followed this community for more than 2 years and have seen and taken valuable advices from experts here. I am indeed very happy to become a part of this growing team and would love to contribute towards its growth as well enhance my automotive knowledge.

To start with who I am, I am Sridhar living in Chennai. I recently graduated From Anna University with a bachelors degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. My interest in automotive controls and embedded systems (various projects and DIYs from building basic sensors to automated parking systems) gained me the ingress as a Product Developer in Electrical and Electronics Systems Engineering at Ford India Pvt. Ltd. Thus being a part of designing electrical systems on their cars
Though less than a year of experience into the automotive sector I did learn a lot about cars and how each and every person perceive the good and the bad of an automobile.
My interest in automobiles during my college days induced me to dust a used Yamaha RX-100 from my uncle's shed for its eardrum rattling two stroke engine and sheer pickup at lower gears. Did minor mods such as changing to a twin exhaust ,electricals, paint job with a bright red coat and white vinyls. Sadly had to part with it very soon.

Never modified a car till now (will do it when i own one for myself :P). At some point in my life would try to own the classic 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 with a 6.2 liter supercharged V8. (if it isn't available then would own the latest version)

Aim in my life is to be a part of the design team in an automotive OE for electrical power train and pursue research in electric drive technology for automobiles.

Team-Bhp has always helped my friends and my dad in choosing a good car well ahead of time so that one can buy the best available for his hard earned money.

So, now I being a part of this community we(bhpians) can grow further by both learning and as well as pooling our recommendations from our experiences to keep ourselves updated on the Indian car scene.

Mod Note: Post Edited. Smiley usage is restricted to two per post on Team-BHP. Please do NOT use more than 2 smileys in a post.

Welcome to the forums Sridhar. Your technical expertise will definitely be something to look forward to. Given your handle and the choice of vehicles you have mentioned, you seem like a person who prefers crude and grungy muscle cars to refined import tuners. (Like me!)

Even my dream car would have to be a Mustang Boss 429. Glad to have you on board and looking forward to your posts!

Hello Tushar and sure I would be glad to share my experiences Muscle cars have always fascinated me by their sheer power,RWD and their coke bottle design. To see one is awe-inspiring, to drive one is euphoric and owning one is to reach the zenith and beyond. The mustang 429 is also a great machine ,in the matter of fact all fastbacks are my favorites

The best part is you get to apply what you learnt. Great to have a work profile like that. All the best. May be you should some time write a thread on how automotive electrical systems are selected and designed (of course not the trade secrets!)

Welcome again.

Thank a lot @ampere , I do love that cool handle of yours! I surely would be happy to discuss how electrical systems are chosen and integrated in an automobile. And yes as i said before, i too am new to this and I am still learning. So i would gradually update on how in general automakers select electrical systems . I referred this site to gain some insights . might help you too http://www.howacarworks.com/.
