Title: Sensor Integrated Multifingered Dexterous Hands
Synopsis: A four fingered robotic hand has been designed and is under development which can be controlled by an operator from a remote location through a sensor integrated glove (data glove). The hand has been designed according to actual human hand dimension and has a total of 12 DOFs. The robotic hand is intended to be used for handling objects that are normally not accessible to human beings or are of hazardous nature. Some alternative methods for tracking the operator hand motion is be-ing thought of using machine vision. pic
Title: Fully Autonomous Grid Navigator and Object Manipulator Robot for Industrial Application
 
Synopsis: In many industrial environmrnts especially in production lines or depatmental stores it is needed to manipulate objects very fast and efficient manner. To automate these kind of processes we are trying to build autonomus mobile robots that can navigate through a shop floor picing and placing objects in their respective positions. The robots will identify the locations by the respective grid co-ordinates and navigate through it while manipulating objects with the arm and gripping system attached with it. pic
Title: Bio– mimetic Earthworm
 
Synopsis: The work is aimed to design and develop a biomimetic earth-worm with enhanced speed and frictional property. The main area of application is in surveillance, maintenance, pay load delivery and rescue operation. pic
Title: Design of a portable exoskeleton structure for rehabilitation of a neuromuscular patient
Synopsis: Design and development of an exoskele-ton structure for support in rehabilitation proc-ess and partially paralyzed patients.  pic
Title: Development of pressure cum slip sensor and controller for a human scale dexterous robotic hand.
 
Synopsis: The basic approach is to implement a human like sensing effect in the artificial robotic hand for grasping of objects. pic
Title: Capacitive Sensor Based High Resolution Pressure mat for Detecting Foot Abnormality Related Diseases.
 
Synopsis: Pressure analysis is an important device for any orthoclinic or rehabilitation centre for studying gait analysis and biomechanics, diabetic offloading, sports medicine, pre and post treatment evaluation, orthotic prescription confirmation etc. The focus is to develop a high resolution pressure mat using capacitive sensor to determine static and dynamic loading pressure, sway analysis and gait analysis. The system will be capable of real time simultaneous acquisition and processing along with an optional optical system for video integration. pic
Title: Compliant Hand for Handling Micro Object.
 
Synopsis: In the present investigation, the main objective is to manipulate micro object such as biological cell or small object with the help of a five fingered micro gripper. The actuation of microgripper can be done with the help of Electro - Active Polymer (EAP) like Ionic Polymer Metal Composite (IPMC). pic
