We encourage students to pursue research beyond their regular school lessons.  This is to tap their potential to innovate from an early age and experience the flexibility in learning.  The topics are chosen by the students themselves and guided by us to ensure the research SMART – Specific, Achievable, Attainable, Relevant and Timebound.

Our first research intern is Sudarshan Sreeram, a student from Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School, Mylapore, Chennai.  We worked on an initiative on dengue hotspot identification that included development of a new methodology that combines Six Sigma principles applies to robotic systems development.

The output from this research was published at the following two conferences:

1.      EMBED-X: An integrated methodology for human – robotic systems development and interaction publication date Oct 9, 2018.  IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, Oct 07-10, 2018.

2.     Autonomous Robotic System Based Environmental Assessment and Dengue Hot-spot Identification publication date Jun 12, 2018.  Presented at the 18th IEEE International Conference on Environment and Electrical Engineering, Palermo, Italy June 12-15, 2018.
