Tata Motors has launched Robo Whiz – an education cell specifically designed to cater to the technical needs of universities and polytechnics.
Robo Whiz will not only provide hands-on experience to students but also help them inculcating required skills for effective practice and management of robotics and automation technology.
R S Thakur, Non-Executive Director and Chairman discussed how Robotics and automation play a vital and critical role in the current manufacturing and assembly operations scenario. With this in practice, it is essential to equip and prepare the future workforce for this upcoming transformation.
The launch of Robo Whiz will not only facilitate the partnership with the education partners but also help develop dependable solutions, curriculum and tools for the future of industrial robotics.
Robotic units of international players allow restricted options to access the robot configuration and controller leaving the aspiring student with a limited scope to experiment and learn. With this in place, this concern can be addressed and utilised optimally.
The current list of Education Cell customers includes BITS Dubai Campus, Kaziranga University, PSG College, Bhavnagar Polytechnic, ongoing orders with IITM and MOU along with IIT Ropar.
