Robotics and Automation

RECENT RESEARCH - AUTONOMOUS ROBOT

Robotics has developed from a theme of fictional novels and movies to fast-growing technology during the last few decades. This is fueled by the development of soft computing techniques and processor technologies. Autonomous Robots are becoming a popular research area in the engineering field. Our mission is to contribute to the development of Autonomous Robots especially wheeled ones. The research in this field has great potential to transform our nation into a superpower by developing advanced autonomous vehicles and planetary rovers. Our research problem addresses the challenges in developing fully autonomous robots that can navigate in multiple domains. The research areas include Deep Learning Techniques, Advanced control techniques, sensor fusion, system identification, etc. The research team uses hardware supports of NI MyRIO, Nvidia Jetson Nano with widely used sensors like LiDAR, and visual systems with software packages such as LabVIEW, ROS, Matlab, etc. We have developed robots for socially relevant applications such as hospital ward robots to fight COVID19, manhole cleaning robots and these projects have received financial support from different universities.
