A fruitful event organised by IEEE RAS SBC LBSITW in collaboration with IEEE RAS Kerala Chapter as a part of R-YANTRA: Ignite The Interests, for school students curious about Robotics and Automation.ย  The session was handled by Dr. Jisha V.R, Chairperson, IEEE RAS Kerala Chapter | Associate Professor, CET.


An insightful event organised by IEEE RAS SBC LBSITW in collaboration with IEEE RAS Kerala Chapter as a part of R-YANTRA: Ignite The Interests, which involved an amazing workshop-cum-contest to give participants a headstart in circuit designing. The event was handled by Mr. Vishnu P Kumar, Robotics and IOT Community Head of Catalyst |IEDC MBCET and Hardware developer at Heylyx Humboldt Pvt Ltd.


A stimulating event hosted by IEEE RAS SBC LBSITW inย  collaboration with IEEE RAS Kerala Chapter promotingย  Robotics and STEM education across all ages. R-YANTRA 2021 comprised of four colourful events.

  • PRAYAAN – a session for school students
  • NIRMAAN – a TinkerCad circuit designing workshop and a contest.
  • Virtual Expo – by Inker Roboticsย

ARTE – Amateur Robo Talent Exhibit

An exuberant talent hunt competition conducted by IEEE RAS SCT SB jointly with IEEE RAS Kerala where one can submit their own projects in the field of robotics. The event was successful in motivating amateur talents by acknowledging their works.


IEEE RAS Kerala Chapter organised a momentous two day event in collaboration with Rapid Labs, TCS onย  15/05/2021ย  and 16/05/2021. Ms. Sarada Jayakrishnan Chairperson, IEEE Kerala Section inaugurated the event in the honourable presence of Dr. Venkat N Krovi, Treasurer, IEEE RAS, Michelin Endowed Chair Professor of Vehicle Automation.ย 

ย Industrial experts mentored the sessions that opened up the domain of Robotics and Automation throughย  design workshops and engaging webinars.


An electrifyingย  talk series where young entrepreneurs in the field of Robotics & Automation, who have redefined usual norms by being not another brick in the wall, share their experience while travelling through the โ€˜road not takenโ€™. The first speaker of the series wasย  Mr. Rahul P Balachandran, the founder of Inker Robotics. Rahul Balachandran explained how he was connected to the technology around and how robots influence different levels of fields in this world. He gave a very brief description about himself and shared his experiences of how he had topped up to his position as the founder of Inker Robotics. He did not forget to share glimpses of videos about the Robots manufactured in Inker Robotics.
