After the successful launch of the country’s first indigenously developed robot ‘BRABO’ in April 2017, TAL Manufacturing, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, has launched ‘Robo Whiz’, an education cell designed for universities and polytechnics. Robo Whiz will provide students hands-on experience and help develop skills needed for effective use and management of Robotics and Automation Technology.
Speaking at the launch, R S Thakur, Non-Executive Director and Chairman, TAL Manufacturing Solutions Ltd, said, “Robotics and automation play a critical role in today’s manufacturing and assembly operations. With this expected to further expand in the coming years, it is imperative to train the future workforce for the transition. The launch of Robo Whiz will enable us to actively collaborate with our education community partners to develop the best possible solutions, curriculum and tools for industrial robotics.”
The robotic arms of foreign players offer limited options to access the robot configuration and controller. Robo Whiz comes with open architecture, access to the controller and provides an open platform for robotics learning and development practices. Integrating Robot with various peripheral devices such as vision sensors and seamless signal and communication interfaces offers a wide scope of industrial applications to experiment with.
Amit Bhingurde, Chief Operations Officer, TAL Manufacturing Solutions Ltd, said ”The Robo Whiz Education Cell will help students develop skills necessary for the advanced manufacturing industry, including cost reduction measures and innovative techniques to enhance quality, leading to better performance. In addition to training, we will also assist education institutes to develop a curriculum. We plan to conduct robotics and automation workshops in education institutes across the country.”Discover More
