We got our inspiration from an unexpected source ...it was a man called Dr. Prahlad Vadakkepat . He’s the assistant professor for Electrical and Computer Engineering in National University of Singapore . He is the founder secretary of the Federation of International Robot-Soccer Association and is currently its general secretary. He is also an entreprenuer whose humanoids have won several international prizes . He came to BITS , Pilani for the International Conference of Emerging Mechanical Technology . He brought with him his humanoid …and lets just say …we were inspired . 🙂
Acyut is the name of the humanoid being developed by a bunch of science freaks from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science , Pilani . We’re basically maintaining this blog to keep a track of our own progress and of how we have evolved . Then why blog? you may ask ….well lets just say that once developed , this will be India’s first indegeniously developed humanoid …we figure such an achievement deserves the right amount of publicity . Suggestions , comments and help of any sort is always welcome. We believe that robotics enthusiasts around the world might just find our blog interesting . Of course the search for sponsors is always on and any information in that respect will be thouroughly appreciated . Anyway …join us as we build Acyut ,” the humanoid” . Well…this ought to be interesting . 🙂
