Achiever's Success Story

Dr. Kumar Loganathan /Entrepreneur/Interdisciplinary engineer/ Scientist/ innovator . Ph.D. in Life science, M.Sc in GEO-INFORMATICS, M.S by researcher, M.Sc applied psychology B.E mechanical engineering

Kumar Loganathan is not unlike the scientist from 3 Idiots- Phunsukh Wangdu. Kumar’s love for physics and its applications led him to becoming an inventor, making small inventions that were simple yet very useful. His team Elbow engineers helped him in designing several interesting inventions. In 2006, he designed a low-cost brake system for automobiles that monitored drivers’ attention to the road. This mechanism was recognized by Ford and several prestigious institutions for its simplicity and efficiency in prevention of accidents due to negligence.

He then designed a prosthetic arm for the physically challenged, that used impedance matching to make the arm move, without the need for surgical intervention. This idea was awarded by LIBA and the then Science and Tech Minister Shri. Kapil Sibal at the Indo-US summit conducted at New Delhi in 2008. 

His next idea won him an award at IIT Madras by the then CEOs of TATA Steel, TCS, and TATA motors. His revolutionary mosquito trapping device that used an Ayurvedic solution ‘Catche’ is now a popular product in supermarkets in Tamil Nadu and Flipkart for orders across India. 

Kumar is currently addressing the world’s most pressing problem- water. His atmospheric water generators produce drinking water that is harnessed from moisture in the air. His company was awarded by IIM Calcutta at their Social enterprise challenge in 2018 for its outstanding efficiency and affordable product. ‘At Aeronero, we are working closely with RASIT to achieve UN sustainable Goal 6 – clean water and sanitation for all by 2030’, says Kumar

Each of Kumar’s inventions has focused on making people’s lives easier by enabling independence. He continues to study to this date, acquiring various degrees. ‘I created Elbow engineers to manifest my ideas into reality by empowering, enabling, and thus enhancing the lives of people around me, says Kumar. ‘There is no limit to learning. My motto is to continue to imagine, innovate, and inspire.’
