Students exhorted to improve technical skills

The Student Activity Centre (SAC) of the Kakatiya Institute of Technology & Science (KITS), in association with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Institute of Electrical and Telecommunications Engineers (IETE) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), organised a two-day workshop entitled ‘Autobotix’.

Aim of workshop

Chief executive officer of Sakrobotix based at Bhubaneswar, S. Mahapathra, speaking at the inauguration ceremony, said the workshop was aimed at keeping the students abreast of latest developments in robotic science and to bridge the gap between industries and academia.

Sound knowledge

Every student should have sound knowledge of the concepts like sensor basics, sensor selections, principles of turning, microcontroller interfacing aspects in design and development of a basic robot, which were the essential features of robotics science, he said.

Growing need

Design and development of intelligent robots for the application of motor controls, motion controls, space applications and automation applications had been growing across the world, he noted.

Exhortation

The secretary and correspondent of KITS V. Lakshmikantha Rao, speaking on the occasion, exhorted the students to improve the technical skills along with language skills.

Unique platform

College principal Prof. K. Ashoka Reddy said the workshop would provide a unique platform for the students in developing a robot and its control. The SAC convener Prof. V. Ramaiah said the workshop would help increase the innovative thinking and hands-on experience in developing robots and also multi-disciplinary engineering concepts’ understanding among the students.

About 172 student participants from all over India and Warangal, including from IITs, took part in the workshop.

Faculty members Dr. D. Prabhakara Chary, Harikumar, Rajendra Nayak, Suresh and student coordinators Bhavana, Haseeb, Abhishek and Pravalika were present.
