India’s Companies Focus on Developing Technology Devices

Harvard University and India’s Mumbai-based Tata Group are collaborating on a wearable device powered by soft robotics. The device will be akin to a suit or exoskeleton adding more strength to elbow joints and allowing a worker to lift something instead of using a machine for the purpose.

The Group’s CTO Dr. Gopichand Katragadda, said, “The wearable device fits in with our overall concept of the connected worker. We are using sensor technology for safety and other aspects of the job he is performing and hope to be leaders in this space.” The device would alert the wearer if the carbon dioxide or monoxide levels in the room reached a level unsafe for humans.

Pune-based KPIT Technologies has introduced an augmented reality-based glass that can help trainees learn the nuances of certain processes needing specific hand gestures like molding.
Augmented Reality
India’s IT companies creating applications for emerging technology such as drones, augmented and virtual reality and sensor tracking which are used by both the manufacturing and industrial sectors. At certain industrial ports and factories, drones and chip-based IDs are already being used to ensure that no person is accidentally left behind, reports the Economic Times.
L&T Infotech has an AR glass solution that allows field engineers to inspect and identify areas safe for construction. Since this happens in real-time and allows for quick decision-making, it has led to an increase in operational efficiency and worker productivity, said the company.
