The students of the University of Engineering & Management (UEM), Jaipur have developed this interesting concept of a robot subscribing platform. Their website called IBOTS can be used as this platform for subscription of robots kept elsewhere for a limited time, and those robots can be made to control from the place where the subscriber is present.
When a robotics competition is held at different big international levels or even at small scale at different technical festivals, then various robotics professionals or students cannot participate because they need to go to the place of competition with their robots, which often is not a possibility for them.
So the idea is that, using this platform, robotics professionals or students can subscribe to different robots kept at the place of the competition and can make the robots function from their native place. Using the platform after subscription of the robots, the robots can be made to function in any way, that the subscriber would like to.
The project has been done by Mr. Sourav Banerjee, Mr. Sparsh Dutta and Mr. Ankit Verma under their mentor Prof. Souvik Saha.
University of Engineering & Management, Kolkata in association with Institute of Engineering & Management, Kolkata, has successfully organized The 7th IEEE Annual Ubiquitous Computing, Electronics and Mobile Communication Conference (IEEE UEMCON 2016) at Columbia University, New York, USA from 20th to 22nd October, 2016
We will get back to you soon!
