WELCOME TO THE CENTRE FOR AUTOMATION AND ROBOTICS

ABOUT US

Centre for Automation and Robotics at Hindustan University was established on 20th October 2014 to promote educational and research activities in the field of robotics, automation and computer vision. This Centre bridges the gap between industries and University with a distinctive capability to harness the intellectual energy of academia to impact Indian industries. It is established as an interdisciplinary centre for schools of mechanical, electronics, electrical, aeronautical and computer sciences of Hindustan University in response to the rapidly growing interest of Indian industries in robotics and automation in recent years. In order to propel the centre through its visionary path, committees are formed at different organization levels


VISION: A research team with synergetic strengths emphasizes on robotics and automation related research, product development, teaching, training and consultancy with a goal to innovate and disseminate new knowledge to meet the needs of industries and society


MISSION: To engage in multidisciplinary research in the fields of robotics and automation, condition monitoring, vision system and artificial intelligence. Centre strives to provide solutions which will support industrial automation systems. It also focuses on providing the students with a varied academic and research experience on industrial automation and robotics, and helps the University in educating the future work force in meeting the oncoming technical challenges and advancements in the field of automation and robotics.

Principal Investigator: Dr M M Ramya

Funding Agency: Naval Research Board (DRDO)

This proposal envisages developing a complete, flexible, and extensible modular automated set of algorithms for adaptive enhancement and object recognition in underwater images. Soft computing approaches will be used in the proposed methodology to intelligently find optimal parameters for pre-processing, enhancement, and object recognition of underwater images

Principal Investigator: Dr M M Ramya

Funding Agency: Combat Vehicles Research & Development Establishment (DRDO)

This study project is being initiated under CARS between CVRDE and HITS to mainly work out the configuration for the tactical warfare and demonstrate the PC based model with simulated situations, possible moves, defensive and offensive operations, command and control operations

Principal Investigator: Dr D G Harris Samuel

Co Investigator: Dr D Dinakaran

Funding Agency: Nelcast Ltd

Computerized testing of thickness of the casting component will enable the 100% testing of components and enhance the quality control. A Graphical User Interface will be developed to automatically plot the thickness values during the measurement. The proposed system will replace the existing destructive method with a reliable low cost solution

Principal Investigator: Dr D G Harris Samuel

Co Investigator: Dr D Dinakaran

Funding Agency: Newton Bhabha Scheme, Royal Academy of Engineering, UK

Austempered ductile Iron (ADI) with high specific strength and about 10% reduced weight competes as a cost effective material substitute for forged steels in several core service sectors of engineering components. This project aims at developing detailed process know how for manufacture of advanced grades of ADI
