Due to numerous limitations, Bangladesh naturally lags a bit behind the developed world within the subject of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. But nonetheless, Bangladesh is working and making an attempt to contribute. Recently, amidst the pandemic, 5 East Delta University (EDU) college students have efficiently constructed a robotic. In a yr’s effort, the humanoid robotic, named “ROBO EDU 2.0”, was created by a group of 5 college students finding out within the Electrical and Electronics Engineering program.
A specialty of ROBO EDU is its mobility. It can transfer round and might perform varied instructions reminiscent of giving a salute by listening to verbal directions; it may possibly recognise faces of individuals standing in entrance of it, for that the id and the image of that particular person should be given or saved within the robotic’s database prematurely. The robotic then scans the face of the particular person standing in entrance and compares the face with the information saved in its reminiscence.
Team chief Minul Islam mentioned, “We started building ROBO EDU before the university was closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Because of the closure, the overall work got delayed.”
“Our robot is capable of performing certain tasks smoothly, including recognising faces using data analysis from stored information. Python has been used as its programming language. It can be controlled simultaneously via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The robot’s technological and programming phase is over; we are currently working to make its exterior more humane.”
The different members of the group are Naimul Alam, Jahedul Islam, Akramul Islam, Monirul Islam.
Lecturer Baque Billah, the supervisor of the group, mentioned, alongside the ultimate yr mission; one other principal goal behind ROBO EDU was to develop a reconfigurable robotic that can be utilized as a studying instrument for EDU Future Factory, the place college students will be capable of find out about AI-robot and in addition to implement their AI associated concepts to look at the real-field output for additional evaluation.
The current one is only for demo functions, he added, “To fulfill our real purpose, we need to make more structural modifications and also have to install a high configuration CPU instead of the present one.”
Congratulating the group, Sayeed Al Noman, Founder Vice-Chairman of EDU, mentioned that the college has been paying particular consideration to technological developments and improvements, and inspiring college students to take part in varied competitions.
“For that, we have formed a Robotics Club, and we are sponsoring students. Besides, in EDU Future Factory, our faculty members and students practice new-fangled technologies like Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, Blockchain and Data Science.”
He hopes that EDU college students would make a major contribution to the long run technology-dependent world.
