Robotics started as one of the oldest research laboratories of the institute which was developed by Prof G C Nandi in the year 2001. Attributed to significant research and activities, the robotics group was uplifted as a Center of Excellence named Centre of Intelligent Robotics with special emphasis on Health Care Automation. The objective of the center is to provide a stimulating environment to the students, researchers, visitors and faculty members to carry out world class research, teaching and product development in a team, so that the technology can be brought to the household level and reach to the needy people who are economically challenged. The centre is equipped with state-of-the art infrastructure including Baxter humanoid robot (Cobot), Nao humanoids, Pioneer LX mobile robot, etc., along with a bouquet of indigenously developed robots. The centre derives its strength from leading international and national academic institutions and industry partners.
