Summary of Talk

"Autonomous machines present a unique opportunity to substantially improve the safety and productivity of sites. While the benefits far outweigh the investments, the challenges to implement autonomy needs a systematic and engineering approach to problem solving. I would like to give a peek on some of the development processes and solutions that the off-highway industry is working on. An attempt will be made to kindle the interest in the young and budding engineering talents to envision and think ‘out of the box’ to connect the contemporary technologies with academic basics." @Mr. Arun (Dept. PRO in-charge): I request you to do the needful in uploading the event info into the university website and on the intranet.
