ROBOTICS IN INDIA:-Robotics in INDIA is still at its infancy .But I am sure that there are few who can certainly play a vital role to come out of this situation. What we primarily need to undertake this task is to have frequent interaction and sharing of knowledge. Secondly we need to have more number of robotic contests ,seminars and workshops to be organized and conducted. There are a lot feilds here that can seek the help from robots like 1.MEDICAL ROBOTS 2.MARINE ROBOTS 3.UNDERWATER ROBOTS(India has got one of the biggest coastline). Also recently Indian space research is undergoing a lot of development and this is another area where MOBILE ROBOTS and WALKING ROBOTS can be made use of. Any why yet another type of robots are the "WALL CLIMBING ROBOTS". In this area, I have made India's first wall climbing robot with sucker feet inyear 2000. Its name is LIZARD 2000
Lizard 2000 is a tripod wall-climbing robot. It can hold on to the climbing surface using it's suction feet. Each foot has got two degrees of freedom and the whole robot has three degrees of freedom. The robot can be controlled in real time basis through user interface. The control structure has only one level and is implemented using 87c51 microcontroller the robot can be used as a platform for fire fighting,window-pane cleaning etc.
