• Amaran- A Robotic Coconut tree Climber- India got the tag as the second largest coconut producer in the world. Until recently coconut plucking job conventionally was taken up by socially and economically backward people in these areas. Due to various government welfare programs and increase in literacy, the number of people taking up this job has dwindled a lot which is one of the main reasons resulting in increase in the price of coconuts.

  • The autonomous floor cleaning robot is designed to sweep and collect the dust and mop the room as well. The sweeping of the floor and collecting the dust happens one after the other followed by mopping the room. The intelligent mechanism added to the robot can identify and avoid obstacles while cleaning the robot. The autonomous algorithm, which is part of the design, takes care of operating the robot autonomously inside the room.

  • This project is about building automated wheelchair for the elderly and physically challenged. It takes any destination which lies within a particular mapped location as input, calculates the shortest path to that location, and takes the user to the destination without any external aid. The entire floor plan of the house is divided as grids and coordinates are identified. Two different implementation mechanisms are available: FPGA based VLSI implementation and Raspberry-Pi based Embedded System implementation. LARN algorithm - Location Awareness and Remembrance Navigation algorithm is designed using Djikstra's shortest path algorithm to implement the auto-navigation functionality.

  • Stairs of different sizes and shapes and variety of designs are available in various households. We always find odd to clean the stair case steps and cleaning several steps in multistoried buildings is in itself a task. Using robots for cleaning surface, glass, rooms etc. are not new and are in the field of research for more than a decade. But when it comes to stair case cleaning, we see that the research area is only few years old. The main reason is the enormous difference is design mechanism when it comes to vertical climbing robots compared to the robots that move over surface. These robots function in 3-D space where as surface cleaning robots function in 2-D space which is comparatively easier to design and implement compared to the 3-D space robots. Our 'ClePa' is designed to operate in 3-D space  with several features including: manual control, semi-autonomous and fully-autonomous control, crawler based mobility mechanism, stationary and dynamic obstacle detection and avoidance and threshold detection.

  • India is the second largest populated country in the world with more than 1.3 billion people having diverse culture, languages, food habits and tastes etc. Rice is a common staple food consumed by people all over India. A variety of food items can be prepared with rice including rice flakes, idly, appam, dosa etc. Of all these, dosa is one of the most popular dishes in India, usually consumed as breakfast and sometimes even as dinner.

  • Nowadays, we see large variety of applications of robotic instruments, oriented to influence human living. Robots in nearly every domain, are helpful to lead a very comfortable life. Humans struck by partial paralysis undergo great difficulty to carry out daily activities. Nevertheless, after rigorous therapy, their motor controls can be regained if the severity levels of the stroke are not quite high.

  • Human-animal conflicts arise due to the diminishing natural resources and habitats as a result of the rise of encroachments, poaching, urbanization, and industrialization. As a result, the loss in yield due to animal attacks has been on a steady increase in the past few years. Even though agriculture is a vast sector, the average farmer would find it difficult to invest in technological solutions to prevent loss in yield, especially for security purposes.

  • KaraChara is used in the rehabilitation and therapy of patients with paralysis due to stroke or spinal cord injury. The design consists of dual control mechanisms for the efficient operation of a Hand Orthosis device, which includes Electrooculogram (EOG) based control and Graphical User Interface (GUI) based control. Physiotherapists can train the patients at initial stages and patients themselves can start using without the need for Physiotherapists later. A patent has been filed for the same and is expected by the end of this year.

  • This project is to create an impact on the level of independence of people with disabilities. To ease the lives of those among us who are unfortunate enough to have lost the ability to move their limbs due to stroke, (SCI - Spinal Cord Injury), old age and other disabilities (SSEP Group), Mudra is the perfect solution. Conventional control mechanism, joy stick, is not suitable for SSEP group of people as the joy stick requires the user to hold it and exert some force.

  • As the meaning of the name corresponds to a robot which is automated in wall painting, this is a robot which can paint the interior walls of a room autonomously. The robot has a controlled movement in all the four directions without rotating the base of the robot by making use of the mecanum wheels. It also has three Ultrasonic sensors which helps the robot to move in a controlled way following the walls of a room.

  • The first use of the rescue robots was actually during the World Trade Centre(WTC) collapse in 2001 though the research was going on this field in the past for many years. The main goal of these robots is to reduce the number of deaths during disasters by surveying the areas in which humans are not permitted until the fire is off.
