TAL Manufacturing Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, has launched the TAL Brabo Robowhiz Educart under its wing Robowhiz, an education cell designed to cater to universities, engineering colleges, polytechnics and training institutes. The robot is specially designed to impart students with the practical knowledge of principles and operation of industrial robots used in different manufacturing processes and would present them with an opportunity to implement the fundamentals of application development, programming, designing and functioning of a robotics cell. This hands-on experience will help students to develop skills required for effective use and management of robotics and automation technology to enhance quality and innovation leading to better performance.
As robotics and autom-ation grow in importance in today’s manufacturing and assembly operations, it has become imperative to train the future workforce for a smooth transition. Robowhiz Educart comes with open architecture which allows access to the controller and provides an open platform for robotics learning and development practices. It is mounted on a portable cart for the ease of application and is also compatible with softwares like LabVIEW, MATLAB, Visual Studio and Java. The Robowhiz Educart will educate students with robot programming, axis movement, trajectory movement, linear movement and computer vision. Integrating the robot with various peripheral devices such as vision sensors and seamless signal and communication interfaces will offer a wide scope of industrial applications for students to experiment with. The students can learn to design programs for the Robowhiz Educart to perform innumerable applications.
The TAL Brabo Robowhiz Educart comes with four alternatives for different applications such as palletizing & path tracing application, pick & place and path tracing application, pick & place with color sensor application and lastly, gesture and speech recognition application.
Amit Bhingurde, COO, TAL Manufacturing Solution Limited, said, “We are excited to announce the launch of Robowhiz Educart. The Robowhiz Educart is a stepping-stone in our commitment to facilitate the partnership with the education partners which will help reduce gap between industry and academia and develop a curriculum for training the incoming workforce to work with industrial robots. The product is open source based and allows unrestricted access to the robot’s controller allowing aspiring students with a scope to experiment, learn and use their creative mind.”
