IISc + TCS Research + Hanson Robotics Limited

IISc Team – The Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical Systems (RBCCPS) @ IISc is a research and academic centre, under the Division of Interdisciplinary Research in Indian Institute of Science (IISc). The centre focuses on foundational and applied research to solve cutting edge problems in Robotics involving advanced machine learning techniques, Connected Autonomous Systems like drones and 5G-enabled autonomous vehicles, and Socio-Technical Systems like urban transportation systems and Smart Cities. The centre hosts a state-of-the-art CPS laboratory called the Makery. It is also involved in creating and running the Drone Research Park and a 5G-V2X Testbed for connected autonomous vehicles research. It has established strong collaborations with many major technology companies and engages with many startups. It also works closely with government bodies and participates in specific standardisation activities.

TCS Research Team – Over the past three decades, TCS has established itself as a pioneer in software research, and has continued to systematically invest in research and innovation. In this fast-changing world, exploration of early-stage disruptive technologies is the key to managing technology risk and staying relevant to our customers. By creating tools and frameworks for software development, TCS has been able to deliver large and complex projects for customers around the world. This has paved the way for a fast-growing research ecosystem that brings together stakeholders from across the organization, industry, and academia.

Hanson Robotics Limited Team – Hanson Robotics is an AI and robotics company dedicated to creating socially intelligent machines that enrich the quality of our lives. Our innovations in AI research, robotics engineering, experiential design, storytelling and material science bring our robots to life as engaging characters, useful products and as evolving AI. Our robots will serve as AI platforms for research, education, medical and healthcare, sales and service, and entertainment applications. In time, we hope our robots will come to understand and care about us through cultivating meaningful relationships with those whose lives they touch, and evolve into wise living machines who advance civilization and achieve ever-greater good for all.
