A student entrepreneur from Startup Village has won accolades for ‘Xerobot’, a robot that he developed, at a national-level competition organised by Brahmos Aerospace Private Limited.

Jijo Paul, founder of Resnova Technologies, walked away with the ‘Best student Award for Innovative Idea in Science and Technology’ at the prestigious Science & Tech Quest 2014 competition.

‘Xerobot’ can be taught to replicate a particular activity by employing process automation. Paul, an engineering student, received the award from former President A.P.J Abdul Kalam at a function in New Delhi.

The robot is being modified to explore its commercial potential by making its application adaptable to the industry. The present model of the robotic palm has the potential to replicate the motions of human fingers. ‘Xerobot’ can be taught to perform any activity within its degrees of freedom using a controller arm and could then be embedded on to a stand alone system, said a release.

Paul started this project during his second year B. Tech course at Amal Jyothi College, Kanjirapally. It is undergoing further development at the innovation club at Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, where he is pursuing his M.Tech.

The project was shortlisted for technology validation at DST Lockheed Martin International Summit. It was also evaluated by the University of Texas at Austin as ‘a valid and novel concept with potential application in industry.
