Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering and science that includes mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, computer science, and others. Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation, and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.
India already has many of the basic elements in place to become a robotics industry force, including a strong educational system, established business and academic research facilities, and an increasingly entrepreneurial business community.
Over the past several years, the Indian robotics industry has pushed far beyond traditional business areas, such as manufacturing and production, to enter emerging domains including education, rehabilitation, and entertainment.
Over the same time span, the number of Indian robotics researchers and educators has grown from just a handful to several hundred skilled professionals working in industry, higher education, and energy organizations.
Here are some interesting facts about robotics –
What are some interesting facts about robots or robotics?
Roboticists are hesitant to use male voices in AI.
South Korea has the highest robot density – 531 robots for every 10,000 people – in the manufacturing world.
The slowest adopters of robot technology are those countries where the labor costs are low like in India, and where economies are primarily dependant on human skill like in Italy.
Naturally, due to it’s low cost and risk, robots have always been our first option in exploring deep space, and most of them are powered by the heat produced by plutonium-238 (RTG).
For the first time in human history, an AI robot with female features called Sophia was granted the citizenship of a country. Funnily, her identity was given by a country which has been widely criticized for suppressing women’s rights.
The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) is one of 15 IITs established around the nation to serve as centers of excellence for training, research and development in science, engineering, and technology. Founded as the College of Engineering in 1961, ITT Delhi has grown significantly and now has the power to decide its own academic policy and research initiatives.
IIT Delhi currently offers master’s and doctoral programs in mechatronics and robotics. Visiting students also have the opportunity to work on state-of-the art robotics and mechatronic research projects.
An interdisciplinary program in autonomous robotics covers the design and control of robotic systems for various applications.
BrainWeave, here in this industry too, is trying to contribute its best in a constructive manner.
BrainWeave along with REO, a subsidiary, works to organise various workshops and training sessions for a number of schools and universities all over India.
We believe in all round development, hence we also provide the set ups for labs and smart curriculums which are backed up by innovation and creativity.
