KCRAI

Karnavati Centre for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (KCRAI)

Vision

The vision of the Karnavti Centre for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence is to promote educational and research activities in the areas of AI and Robotics and create competent AI and Robotics professionals and entrepreneurs.

Mission

  • To conduct Skill Development Training Programmes for students and research activities for faculty members in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
  • To prepare the students through project-based learning and demonstrate technical competence in their profession by applying knowledge of recent trends in AI and Robotics
  • To generate trained and skilled manpower to solve real-time practical problems and fulfil the industrial needs such as Healthcare, Financial and Agricultural Industries and Higher Educational R&D Institutions
  • To facilitate sponsored research and consultancy in the field of AI and Robotics

Objectives

The Centre for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence has been set up with the following objectives.

  • To carry out combined Artificial Intelligence and Robotics concept-based research in the broad areas of AI, Robotics and Automation
  • To produce trained manpower through degree programmes of B.Sc. (Hons.), Master’s Degree and PhD Degree offered by USCI, Karnavati University and many hands-on trainings
  • To take up real time commercial and industrial projects with specific application in the areas of medical, manufacturing industry maintenance support and other relevant areas
  • To conduct outreach programmes through technical workshops and hands on training programmes for faculty members and students to disseminate knowledge in interdisciplinary areas

Karnavati Centre for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (KCRAI) at Karnavati University was established on 05th March 2021 to promote educational and research activities in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Fundamentals of robotics programming, simulation and other advance courses. The centre has got AR1440/GP12 type of robotics installed to cater the needs of the students of B.Sc. (Hons.) programmes offered by our Unitedworld school of computational Intelligence. The centre has signed an MoU with M/s. Yaskawa India Pvt Ltd., a Japanese leader for academic collaborations It bridges the gap between industries and our Karnavati University with a distinctive capability to harness the intellectual energy of academia to impact Indian industries. It is established as an interdisciplinary Centre for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in response to the rapidly growing interest of automated industries in robotics and automation in recent years.

KCRAI at USCI is to teach AI and Robotics design to the students of KU, provide solutions to realtime automation and Industry needs. The main focus of the KCRAI is to create and design a simple autoamation projects to control all kind of areas such as home appliance, medical, manufacturing industries etc. To developing the simple prototype models to provide feasible solution to worldwide problems and needs.

The Centre will primarily focus on the following.

  • Education at USCI– To facilitate and teach students on importance of varieties of electronic components, actuators, sensors and robotics actions through our international standard course curriculum.
  • Higher Education – AI and Robotics Courses will provide a comprehensive educational environment and enable students to gain expertise in upcoming generation robotics and automation systems. By exposing our students to course work from multiple disciplines and preparing them to think about AI and robotics from a complete approach. The Robotics course will prepare a skilled industry workforce as well as technical expert researchers who will be able to provide leadership in a world that is progressively dependent on upcoming technology. The students will have good career opportunities in planning, designing, manufacturing, research and agriculture, space investigation and a variety of other areas such as medical, industry maintenance support.
  • Research- To identify research areas in agriculture engineering, helth care industry, Automobile Industry, Finance and incorporating with inter-disciplinary areas.
  • FDP/Workshops/Webinar – KCRAI will organize Hands on Training programs, summer schools, workshops, Conferences, FDPs, Symposiums, Seminars.
  • Industry Projects – Collaborate to innovate and co-create solutions for various industry verticals.
  • Incubation – To promote innovations, solving the problems in society, Industry needs and developing eco-system for Start Ups.
  • Robotics Design Contest – To promote many events on innovative ideas to share the knowledge among the student by conducting design contest/Ideathon/etc. So, it facilitates students’ fraternity to understand the problem, analysis, developing algorithm, implementation through different types of controllers.
