The Centre for Robotics & Intelligent Systems (CRIS) came into existence in the year 1992. Earlier it was known as Centre for Robotics (CFR). Prior to that there was an informal research group working in this then emerging area. This research group at CRIS has acquired in-depth technical skills in design and fabrication of robot manipulators, AGVs, devising intelligent control strategies for both manipulator and navigation and their real time implementations.

Message from Dr. B K Rout

Center for Robotics and Intelligent Systems (CRIS) is looking for highly motivated undergraduate students to work on various projects under progress.

Students should have ability to work in team and interest in working on interdisciplinary projects. In this regard they have to submit their brief biodata indicating their academic proficiency and extracurricular skill. Up to date biodata should be handed over to Demonstrator of CRIS during official hour. Shortlisted student would be contacted through mail. 



AcYut-"the one who never falls" or "the Imperishable"

AcYut-"the one who never falls" or "the Imperishable" in Sanskrit- is the name of the series of humanoids being developed at the Centre for Robotics and Intelligent Systems by a team of undergraduates. 


Automated Ground Vehicles (AVGs)

Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) is an area in which intense robotics research has been going on all over the world. Development of AGVs aims at making mobile robotic machines which are self-sufficient and can function with minimum human intervention in their environment. Shaurya is one of its kind AGV being developed in CRIS-BITS,for real life implementations.
