Launched in 2013, Kochi-based Sastra Robotics uses robotic technology for a wide range of industry applications. In this video interview with Business Editor Vishal Krishna, the founders speak about how they started up immediately after college, why robotics, and how they grew their startup.
- A 2017 International Federation of Robotics report states that sales of robot technology went up in 2015 by roughly 15 percent from earlier years.
- Every year, in any global excellence centre or automobile/aviation R&D centre, hundreds of people spend endless hours testing Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) with advanced touchscreens, alternating between buttons, knobs and toggle switches, voice commands, and hand gesture-feedback testing.
- The boys, who had built hardware systems while studying, graduated in 2012 and decided to start up.
- We are, over the next two years, going to build a neural network interface in a robot with five fingers," says Aronin, Co-founder of Sastra Robotics.
