10. Hexacopter having massive payload capacity
11. And Smart home application based on Internet of Things (IoT)
The training had student enrollment from Mechanical, Electronics Telecommunications and Electrical Engineering Departments
This Robolab has now completed one successful year in giving students traction to their theoretical knowledge on a practical basis. It presented students an opportunity to excel in their engineering career opening a new door for conducting extensive research work. The Robolab has also given birth to a unique robotics club in Sphoorthy College which is a group of robotics enthusiast who work in this lab facility.
This year started on a good note with major projects at Spoorthy Engineering College for a new batch of enthusiastic students who indulged in the robotics activity with a whole heart. Altogether 50 students learned and completed their major projects under the guidance of expert faculty from Robolab Technologies.
Students were split into group of four and choose their own projects according to their interests, following are few of them:
2. Semi-automatic 3D CNC machine model
3. Factory automation robot
4. Rocker-bogie mechanism robot
5. Omni-directional robot
These projects had student enrollment from departments – mechanical, electronics, telecommunications, electrical, computer and IT.
The Robolab is the hub of inter-branch activities in the field of Robotics in the college. Established in association with and under the guidance of experts from Robolab Technologies Pvt. Ltd, the lab serves as an excellent platform for the students of all the branches to implement their ideas. The Robolab is an open to all place, handled and managed by the students.
