On a gloomy Monday morning, the kind that saps your energy and determination to work owing, the kind where we are fighting the blues to get back to our routine, Mridula Prakash, our sustainability expert based in Mysore, and a gung-ho techie, focuses her unstirred spirit on creating Sustainability practice roadmap for LTTS. With a career that spans from integrating system solutions and innovating technical products to formulating sustainability strategies, Mridula has been engineering the change with us for 13 years.
"It has been 13 years since I joined the LTTS team, never have I had a dull day where my skills weren't challenged enough. That's exactly what an Engineer at Heart like me craves for, a problem to solve and the art of crafting a good solution”.
What do you do at LTTS?
I am an embedded engineer by education and a tech enthusiast. I have played several roles as an engineer in the organization, and I currently work with the CTO team and am responsible for mapping LTTS' sustainability roadmap. I have been closely working with our CTO and other vital stakeholders, from the conceptualization stage of our Sustainability practice to its execution stage. To its fruition, we have now committed our efforts to the Science-based targets initiative to lead the way to a zero-carbon economy, boost innovation and drive sustainable growth by setting emissions reduction targets.
Tell us your favourite engineering moment at LTTS
"One of my favourite engineering moments at LTTS was when my team and I developed a functional safety module for an automated steering system for tractors. It was never done before, and we were trying to establish a new technology in the line of safety for our customers. We had to figure out how these tractors would safely steer themselves as directed, considering parameters like speed, rollover, humans, and other environmental factors. It was challenging, but we did make those tractors safer.”
