The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, has sent Rs 170 crore to IIT Delhi under Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS). With its help, IIT Delhi will now set up a Technology Innovation Hub on Robotics. IIT Delhi is known as the Technology Innovation Hub (IHFC) at Robotics. Explain that the four verticals that will be covered under this initiative at IIT Delhi include Medical Robotics, Agriculture and Agriculture and Disaster Management, Defense, and Smart Manufacturing.
In addition to more than 50 faculty members from IIT Delhi, 50 other faculty from Japan, South Korea, USA, UK, and other companies in India and abroad are already committed to the I-Hub Foundation for Robotics (IHFC). IIT Delhi Director Professor V. Ramgopal Rao says that ‘I-Hub Foundation will not only do research in the field of collaborative robotics but also regularly translate results into products for the benefit of humanity’.
IIT Delhi will set up a Technology Innovation Hub in the field of robotics and will focus primarily on technologies that enable robots to work closely with humans. Simply put, with the help of new technology, humans, and robots will be able to work together. It would work better in places where robots could maximize the benefit of human intelligence with accuracy and the ability to work in human environments where humans could not work.
