GBU will start robotics course from next year

  • | Sunday | 29th October, 2023

NOIDA: A new robotics and automation department is next in line for Gautam Buddha University (GBU) as the institution is planning to set up a Center of Excellence in robotics and automation by the next academic year.At first, an MTech and a diploma course will be offered. The department will function in collaboration with industry bodies. The first batch will start with 20 students.Initially, we have collaborated with Addverb, a robotics company.We will also sign an MoU next month with the company. The companies will train the GBU students focusing on the export of automation-based robots, said Ravindra Kamar Sinha, vice chancellor of GBU.Officials maintained that in the first year of the MTech program, theoretical classes will be conducted by GBU.We also published the following articles recentlyAmazon testing humanoid robots in its warehousesAmazon is planning to test Agilitys bipedal robot, Digit, in its nationwide fulfillment centers. The move comes as Amazon seeks to increase productivity and efficiency in its operations through automation. While the integration of humanoid robots raises challenges in terms of adapting to human-designed workspaces, Amazon is actively exploring the possibilities of combining wheeled autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) with robot arms for mobile manipulation. The ongoing pilots have the potential to reshape the use of bipedal robots in various industries.From next academic year, over 30 Goa schools to offer sign languageThe Goa board of secondary and higher secondary education plans to introduce Indian Sign Language (ISL) as a seventh optional subject in high schools in the state. The move aims to promote inclusivity and empathy among students. Over 30 regular schools have already committed to adopting ISL, with the syllabus set to be ready by January 2024. The training for teachers was conducted by the Goa Association for the Deaf, and the subject will be introduced in Class IX from the academic year 2024-25.Robotic knee replacement surgery: The future of joint replacement is hereKnee degradation affects a large population, but many avoid knee replacement surgery due to misconceptions. Robotic-assisted surgery is revolutionizing joint replacement procedures, offering benefits such as less pain, quicker recovery, and improved precision. Advanced CT scans generate customized 3D plans for each patient, reducing the margin of error. Robotic systems can create detailed pre-operative plans and assist surgeons with high accuracy, resulting in better outcomes and faster recovery. The minimally invasive techniques used in robotic-assisted surgery lead to reduced trauma, shorter hospital stays, and fewer complications. The combination of human expertise and robotic precision is a powerful tool for joint replacement procedures. Continued research and development are necessary to make this technology accessible to all patients.
