Message from Prof. (Dr.) B K Rout

Center for Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CRIS) is looking for highly motivated undergraduate  and post graduate
students to work on various projects under progress.

Students should have ability to work in team and interest in working on interdisciplinary projects. In this regard they have to submit their brief bio-data indicating their academic proficiency and extracurricular skill. Up to date bio-data should be handed over to Demonstrator of CRIS during office hour (9AM to 5PM). Shortlisted student would be contacted through mail. 

 

Acyut

AcYut-"the one who never falls" or "the Imperishable"

AcYut-"the one who never falls" or "the Imperishable" in Sanskrit- is the name of the series of humanoids being developed at the Centre for Robotics and Intelligent Systems by a team of undergraduates. 

Shaurya

Automated Ground Vehicles (AVGs)

Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) is an area in which intense robotics research has been going on all over the world. Development of AGVs aims at making mobile robotic machines which are self-sufficient and can function with minimum human intervention in their environment. Shaurya is one of its kind AGV being developed in CRIS-BITS,for real life implementations.
