Indian Origin Scientist makes it to Group that Developedan App for Programming Robots

Indian Origin Scientist makes it to Group that Developedan App for Programming Robots

A new breakthrough by a team of scientists including an Indian origin member from an American University could pave the way for users to easily programme any robot to carry out certain day-to-day activities such as pickup and delivery parts within places.

The scientists are the members of Purdue University, the US. It is learned from the scientists that the new invention could cut down cost in building and programming mobile robots. The setup also has the potential to help people to complete their daily household activities.

Kartihik Ramani, a team member said that it’s difficult for smaller companies to invest a large amount of money in software programmers and mobile robots. The team has developed the app for the developers who can’t afford such huge investments and will cut down the cost involved in building and programming mobile robots.

The app is based on augmented reality (AR). Once the programming is completed, the phone is dropped into the robot’s dock. The robot’s eyes and the brain is the phone; helping in navigation and completing tasks. Users need to scan a QR code of the object or machine during programming before making any robot to complete certain tasks.

After the dicking is completed, the phone (as the robot) depends on the information provided by the QR to work with the objects. The app was demonstrated with robots conducting tasks such as vacuuming, watering plants, and transporting objects.
