About the Speaker

Dr Prahlad Vadakkeppat is a prominent robotics researcher and founder & General Secretary of the Federation of International Robot-Soccer Association (FIRA). He is an Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore. Dr Vadakkeppat has served as the Secretary to the IEEE Singapore Section for the year 2005 and as Technical Activity Coordinator to the Region 10 (Asia-Pacific) in 2001-2002.

Keynote

Dr Vadakkeppat commented in his keynote that an engineer should be diverting his activities in serving the society at large. There is call for engineers who can develop products, sustain the same , market it and yet make money from it to develop more of it, he said ,since a world without engineer’s would be very much difficult a task to evade nowadays.

He discussed various means by which robotics could be used to serve the society at large through a very thought evoking presentation. He classified robots as being industrial and mobile bots. Robots gain an upper hand above humans with the fact that they can work blindly and also continuously, he said.

Robots for medical and health care were discussed which included the Da Vinci Robotic Surgeon, Brain controlled robotic arm, tele-presence robots for medical care, bug bots and finally nanobots which could enter human blood streams and provide valuable data for diagnosis.

Robots for the elderly and disabled where given high regards for the service they provide to our society. The keynote came to a close with Dr Vadakkeppatt stating that the near future would see a world where humans will spend a great deal of time interacting with robots, in the home, workplace and out in the streets.

Robo-Hackathon

Date: 8th– 10thJanuary 2015

Instructors: Mr Aswin Shibu Abraham, Mr Tushar Mohan

This session consisted of the participants being introduced to various concepts necessary to build a basic robot (Day 1), and then being provided the components and materials necessary to fabricate a robot (Days 2 & 3).

The project that the teams were made to work on, was aMaze Solving Robot.Using an Arduino interfaced with IR and ultrasound sensors, each team created their own version of an autonomous robot that would find its way out of a maze using a generalized algorithm.

After the teams completed their robots, they competed against each other on a maze prepared by the RAS CEC volunteers. The team with the shortest time out of the maze was given a cash prize ofRs. 30,000, while the runners-up were awardedRs. 10,000.
