Social distancing is here to stay
Covid-19 has laid the foundation of a new world where social distancing and hygiene would be the new buzzword of the society. People will try to minimize physical contact from each other to prevent the spread of the virus.
In such a scenario, robots can play a significant role in creating social distancing and ensuring safety of people.
Robots can serve food to patients
SakRobotix, a Bhubaneswar based company in Odisha, has manufactured robots that can serve food to the patients affected with the coronavirus, “We have manufactured robots that can deliver food to the patients affected with the pandemic. It will help other people to stay away from the patient and prevent the spread of diseases,” said Sakyasingha Mahapatra, founder of SakRobotix Lab Pvt. Ltd to Chalgenius.
Capacity to make 50 robots per month
The company has also made a robot that would help doctors to examine patients without coming in their close contacts, “The robot is fitted with monitor, speaker and mike. The doctor can interact with the patient by moving the robot. The doctor has to sit in a controlling unit. Currently, we have made 3 such robots in collaboration with ITI Cuttack (government of Odisha). We plan to commercialize them and have the capacity to make 50 robots every month,” said Mahapatra to Chalgenius.
Struggle and hardship led to success
Sakyasingha has inspirational journey behind starting his company. The entrepreneur who hails from Banpur in Odisha graduated from Anna University, Chennai in the year 2009 with a B.Tech Degree in IT.
Soon, he moved to Pune and started working in a private company for eight months. But he had a passion towards robots and returned to Odisha to start a robotic magazine. But financial constraints posed a major challenge, “My father passed away when I was still in school in 2002. Our financial condition was not good. Somehow, I continued my studies,” he told Chalgenius.
Arrived in Odisha with just Rs 1000 in pocket
I came to Bhubaneswar with just one-thousand rupees in my pocket. I still remember the day when I stood on the streets in Bhubaneswar distributing leaflets asking students to get trained by me on robots for my survival,” told Sakyasingha to Chalgenius.
Started with 8 students
He started with 8 students and his work and passion created the path for him. In 2012, he formalised his company SakRobotix Lab Pvt. Ltd, “We are working with 19 schools and 31 engineering universities and colleges where we have robotic labs. Our businesses are spread in different parts of the country and have trained over sixty-thousand students. We do everything involving robotics like their manufacturing, setting up research centre and robotic lab.”
It is one of most promising start-ups recognized by Startup India and Startup Odisha.
