PES University launched ReRo Lab - India’s first 24/7 remote robotics lab


The IEEE Robotics and Automation Student Chapter of PES University, in association with cRAIS (Centre for Robotics Automation and Intelligent Systems), has established ‘ReRo Lab’- India’s first 24/7 remote robotics lab by an educational institution. It offers students and researchers remote access to real robots, allowing users to upload code and perform tests in a safe, controlled environment. The lab is equipped with the latest hardware and software required for remote programming, and a web platform that provides clear visual representation of the robot's movements and actions during the programming process.

Prof. D. Jawahar, Pro-Chancellor, PES University, inaugurated the lab on March 27, 2023. Prof. D. Jawahar in his address praised the efforts of the student and faculty team in establishing the lab and suggested developing the lab to global standards. He extended support and motivated the team to make the most out of the funding and all necessary resources provided by the university. He spoke about opening the lab to school students for learning. The stage was a space for conversations on potential opportunities and collaborations.

Dr. Amit Kumar Pandey, Chief Robotics and AI Officer at Rovial and ex-President, CTO, Chief Science Officer at Hanson Robotics, attended the event virtually. The live demo of the fully functional lab was showcased to everyone.
