Robot Arm to Help India Compete

In an effort to develop robotics and automation, which could almost end the complete dependence on imports of robotic arms in industrial manufacturing, a 'pick and place robot (PP robot)' has been developed as part of the 'Home Grown Technology Programme' on the initiative of Technology Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC), under the Department of Science and Technology (DST).

"The capability to built sophisticated robots is already in the country," says Dr Jagannath Raju, Director of Bangalore based Systemantics India, which manufactures the robot.

"But the initiative has to be moved into the private sector (to be able to replace all imported machines)," he added.
