Pondicherry is known for it’s beautiful architecture, serene nature and spiritual people. The influence of Sri Aurobindo and Mother is unmistakable. This environment is so conducive to creativity, that when Ashwin came back from Germany to give something back to the society, he immediately felt home and encouraged. Coming from middle class background and values, he went into research and developed a patented technology to make the mobility of Old and Specially Abled, easy.
Ashwin feels that unlike west, we still have to go a long way to ease out the accessibility of public spaces by old and Specially Abled. Waiting for the Government is not the solution.
Graduate of mechanical engineering from Pondicherry University. Then, headed to one of the most renowned automotive institutes at RWTH Aachen Germany to pursue my masters. Worked in fields of passenger safety, automatic driving simulators and vehicle crash safety. Ensuring safety of passengers through advanced engineering is my trade and passion.
Returned to India with very little money and started building products based on demand. First-in-India dual axis solar concentrator dish project for steam cooking of 800 students was installed in IIM Bangalore. Further full automation renewable energy projects performed at IIT Madras and IISC.

Caruna swivel seats:
Caruna swivel seats, a product of DIPP registered startup, is a result of 2 years of study, testing and feedback from prospective users. The seats blend into the vehicle elegantly are always easy-to-use. The seats are a perfect fit for the accessiblity-India initiative launched by PM Modi in 2016.
R&D for swivel seating started 2 years back, a combined community effort.
The seats swivel out to enable wheelchair transfers and walker transfers to your vehicle as convenient as practically possible. We make sure also that your back, thighs, and lower hip are at their most convenient positions, so as to promote a good blood flow even during long rides.
Using topologically optimized lean spiderweb metal design, the automatic mechanism blends in to the vehicle interior making it even better than a conventional vehicle seat.
Testing of automotive seats is a long drawn-out process. It involves simulations, physical drop tests and even splashing the electronics with salt water!
