Category: Product(Hardware/Material/Software)
Details of Inventor(s):
Inventor Institution/Organization/Company Department Designation
Dr. V Pandu Ranga Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar Mechanical Sciences Associate Professor
Mr. Vipin Kumar Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar Mechanical Sciences Student
Technical Application Area: Automation and Robotics
If 'Other', please specify:
Please give more details of new technical application area:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bhubaneswar
Affiliated Ministry: Ministry of Education
Type of technology development: Indigenous
Does the technology help in replacing any import items currently
procured from outside India?
Does the technology have export potential? Yes
Category of Technology developed: Export Potential
Stage of Development: Field Test
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
TRL 4: Small Scale Prototype built in a laboratory environment (Ugly Prototype)


Applications: Aimed at inspection and rescue operations, this robot provides a viable alternative in inspecting high rise buildings, old structures to name a few. The advantage of achieving the propelling motion using a single actuator is the stand out feature for this robot. Detachable multipurpose legged configurations make this a robust robotic structure. 1. The climbing robot leg configuration can be used for climbing on the wall with plane or curved surfaces. 2. This leg configuration can be attached independently to the robot 3. Any robot can walk on the sandy surface with help of this leg.
Advantages: 1. Easy to attach in any robot. 2. Easy to manufacture. 3. No foreign material required, only indigenous material is enough.

I-Mitra(आई-मित्र) Welcomes You..
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
