New Delhi: Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer (FITT) at IIT Delhi has entered into a license agreement with Pune-based SVR InfoTech for RoboAnalyzer software, which is an educational software for learning robotics in a fun and effective manner.
The agreement was signed by Mr. Viinod Atpadkar, CEO, SVR InfoTech and Dr. Anil Wali, MD, FITT in the presence of Prof. Subir Kumar Saha, Mechanical Engineering Department, IIT Delhi.
RoboAnalyzer software was developed by Prof. Saha and his team that includes Mr. Rajeevlochana Chittawadigi [an ex-MS(R) student at IIT Delhi]. The software, released since 2009, has been appreciated by Indian and worldwide users, thus making it a truly “Make in India” effort.
The software has rich graphics, intuitive user interface and many unique features not found in any other related software, and hence it found a place in the curriculum of many institutes. Since it has virtual robots, it can also be used to complement lab courses on robotics.
The agreement for software version 8.0 and above has been signed for the exclusive authorized sales and support with SVR Infotech as the technology partner in Indian and International markets.
“The partnership between IIT Delhi and SVR InfoTech is crucial as Robotics and Automation are the emerging fields and will help students to learn fundamentals of robotics, and for the faculty to convey the concepts effectively,” said Mr. Viinod Atpadkar, CEO, SVR InfoTech.
“The impetus towards licensing the software is a strong indicator on encouraging the youth to use indigenous products,” said Prof. Subir Kumar Saha, Mechanical Engineering Department, IIT Delhi, who has been developing and promoting indigenous educational software and products, including rural technologies.
SVR InfoTech would also start training sessions and competition-based learning to impart high quality education, in addition to the technical support.
With this partnership, the RoboAnlayzer team and SVR InfoTech hope to reach a larger audience and create a better impact on effective robotics education.
