HYDERABAD: In keeping with the future trends in technology, the Telangana government announced the creation of the Telangana Robotics Innovation Centre (TRIC) on Tuesday, taking a significant step towards developing a sustainable robotics ecosystem.
Rama Rao, who launched the TS Robotics Framework, stated that robotics is about "unlocking new levels of creativity, productivity, and innovation" that allow accomplishing things that have never been done before. Robotics, he stated, delivers various benefits, including improved safety, enhanced precision, accuracy, and efficiency, which translates into improvements in healthcare, logistics, and agriculture.
"By establishing a strong robotics ecosystem in the state, we create new avenues for growth in other industries and thereby boost the economic output and as a result be a leader in the country," he asserted.
The robotics framework, he said, is part of the state government’s dedicated efforts to harness emerging technologies that saw the creation of the Emerging Technologies (ET) Wing in 2017. "With this framework in place, our vision is to create a sustainable robotics ecosystem that champions innovation, entrepreneurship, and R&D, and position the state as a leader in the field of robotics," Rama Rao said.
India, Rama Rao said, is the 10th largest market for year on year robotic installations according to the World Robotics Report, and there is potential for growth. Telangana’s initiative with access to infrastructure, business enablement, fostering research and innovation, human capital enhancement, and responsible deployment, will lead to a vibrant and sustainable robotics industry in Telangana.
In the days to come the state government, which on Tuesday signed MoUs with five institutions to take the robotics work forward, will also organize a global robotics summit to showcase Telangana’s growing robotics ecosystem and attract investments.
Jayesh Ranjan, principal secretary ITE&C and industries said, "We believe that TRIC will play a pivotal role in implementing the framework and fostering a sustainable robotics ecosystem in the state."
