TEQIP Workshop on
Advanced Robotics at IIT Kanpur
15 - 19 March 2016


About the Workshop

The influence of robotic technologies on society and human beings has been strong. The number of applications of robots is increasing, and the robotics research field is expanding. The applications of robotics range from space exploration to underwater exploration. Scientists and researchers are engaged in advanced robotic research topics to address these challenging problems. Engineering faculty and students as well as industry personnel working in the area of robotics are the target audience as participants.

The idea of this workshop is to make the participants aware of these advancements. The workshop will comprise of the essential theory with hands on experiments by the experts from academic institutions to improve the understanding of this highly technical field. This will in turn improve the quality of the teaching which will motivate the students to take up the challenges in this interdisciplinary field. Open discussions will be encouraged on the subject matter. Plenary talks by the eminent researchers in the area from across the country will also be the part of the workshop.
