ISRO Demonstrates Solar Hybrid Electric Car

Transportation has gained a great deal of importance in the growth of modern society by fulfilling the needs of mobility in everyday life. But vehicles using fossil fuels persistently bring serious problems to environment and life. Research and development activities constantly emphasize the acute need to develop high-efficiency, clean and safe transportation systems. Hence, the ideal transportation system should envisage zero-emission without any pollution. In this perspective, Solar and Electrical energy based hybrid vehicles provide the most effective and viable long-term solution by using renewable energy sources for mobility. Such a transportation system rely upon the major components, namely, energy…

The Importance of Robots

Robots in antiquity and through the Middle Ages were used primarily for entertainment. However, the 20th century featured a boom in the development of industrial robots. Through the rest of the century, robots changed the structure of society and allowed for safer conditions for labor. In addition, the implementation of advanced robotics in the military and NASA has changed the landscape of national defense and space exploration. Robots have also been influential in the media and profitable for toy manufacturers.   History Robots began as entertainment for royalty. Inventors such as Al-Jazari and Leonardo Da Vinci worked to build automatons…

Make in India: Importance of Robotics in the manufacturing segment, and how it can still create jobs

Editor’s Note: This is part 1 of a two-part series on the role of productivity in making ‘Make In India’ a successful program   The showcase initiative of the Modi Government, #MakeInIndia has entered its third year. The goal for #MakeInIndia was to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub, improve contribution of Indian manufacturing to 25 percent of GDP by 2025 from near stagnant levels of 16 percent and create 100 million manufacturing jobs. The intense global outreach by the Government, handsome schemes and incentives offered persuaded several global companies including Foxconn, Airbus and Hyundai pledge to…

Building grass-roots student innovators

A programme to create tinkering labs is an attempt to augment current systems of education with a vision to nurture a million children to become neoteric innovators     I need to bring my mother’s washing inside every time it starts raining, which is several times every day! Can there be no way to do it automatically?” says a class X student. “Can we biologically purify air in our home, can we grow the good microorganisms in our home to purify home air?” asks another student, this one from class IX. The answers are an unequivocal “yes”. While very few…

A Gripping Tale

2007-11-01: One of the keys to the advancement of robotics is the development of new and innovative grippers. Welcome to the future. Advancements in robotics are about doing more with less, and about copying human arm movements for maximum efficiency. But robots do more than human arms can – they lift more, faster and tirelessly. Greater flexibility, lighter weight materials, new technical advances in sensors, a finicky retail environment where purchasing managers are buying less but more variety (mixed palletizing), and a move into new industries like food processing (hygienic design) – these are some of the dominant trends in…

Why are schools obsessed with turning kids into robots?

Standardized tests aren’t the only way of measuring intelligence.   Anya Kamenetz is very clear when she says she didn’t set out to write about standardized testing. A 2014 New America fellow and lead education blogger at National Public Radio, she had already written two books about the future of education and wanted her next project to be about innovations in K-12 education. But as she began researching her new book, The Test: Why Our Schools are Obsessed with Standardized Testing—But You Don’t Have to Be, she found something surprising: Innovations weren’t at the center of the story for K-12….
