Robotics is thriving in the Indian domestic market and has started to gain recognition in the global technology market in recent years. Educational institutions and robotics companies have launched competitions and workshops for students and professionals to focus on Indian robots. Robots in India have a mix of important cutting-edge technologies such as AI, robotics and IoT to generate intelligent functions. One of the most popular Indian robots, Shalu, has more functions than Sophia in the global technology market. Glocalization has made it possible for robots made in India to be promoted in overseas markets and bring higher revenues to the country.
Top robots from India recognized in the global technology market
Shalu is believed to be the first female Indian robot developed by UP’s Dinesh Patel. Shalu can speak in 47 languages for an immense presence in the global technology market. Robotics in India is indeed spreading far-reaching opportunities to develop robots that can be described as “made in India”. Several intelligent functions of this Indian robot attract the glances of foreign countries as it is made of 100% waste materials such as plastic, cardboard, wood and other waste. The robot Made in India is dedicated to all girls and women in India for the mission of the Indian government ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’. Shalu uses AI and facial recognition technology to identify people and remember their identities. It can also give the right answers to all kinds of educational questions and has flexible arms for a proper handshake.
Manav is known as the first humanoid Indian 3D robot from the A-SET Training and Research Institute in Delhi. This robot in India was developed as a research assistant with integrated image and sound processing functions using AI and robotics. It can respond to human commands to walk, speak, or dance. It is known to play soccer or do push-ups with an open source code to react like a human child.
A robotics start-up based in Bengaluru, known as Invento Robotics, has developed this “Made in India” robot called Mitra. This Indian robot is six feet tall and was initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Ivanka Trump at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES). Robotics and AI designed this robot to welcome customers with contextual assistance, facial recognition technology, autonomous navigation and voice recognition through a touchscreen on the chest. One of Mitra’s smart features is that it can understand multiple languages efficiently and effectively.
Kempa is a well known robot in India, especially at Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru. This airport has integrated Kempa, a robot assistant, to greet passengers in English and Kannada. It was developed by Sirena Technologies, a Bengaluru-based AI start-up, to meet the needs of this airport’s passengers. It provides meticulous details on flight times, check-in details and a lot of other information for passengers.
Another robot “made in India”, Sandy is popularly known as the world’s first human-sized AI-powered Indian humanoid robot. This robot has a mix of AI and robotics with a cosmic network of sensory circuitry to mimic human expressions. It also consists of self-learning thanks to NLP and support from Android. It is designed to help multiple industries such as hospitality, banking, and healthcare.
AcYut is the Indian robot built by students from BITS Pilani and has won several awards in several annual robotics competitions. It is known on the global technology market as a robot “made in India” because it won the bronze medal at the RoboGames 2009 – the world’s largest open robot competition with participants from 28 countries. He is known as the only Indian robot to participate in these robotics competitions using a Sanskrit, which means “the one who never fails”.
