Amrita Engineering student team developed a patented wall painting robot which ascends tall walls upon which it gets mounted, independently, and simultaneously paints the surface without compromising the finish.
This robot combines machine learning and computer vision with standard robotics methods to achieve its goals. The student team had participated in James Dyson award international design competition. They were a semi-finalist in the Accenture innovation challenge. The WallpBot has also been filed as a patent.
The team was conprised of: Amritapuri campus students Harikrishnan J, Aravind Sadashiv, Allen Peter John and Arya Sudarsan of Amrita School of Engineering under the mentorship of Dr. Purushothaman A., Vice Chairperson, Electronics and Communication, School of Engineering, Amritapuri campus. Congratulations to the team!
