Students Of Woxsen University Launch DISHA At Global Impact Summit 2022
The project was funded by the WoU SEED Research Grant, initiated by the R&D Department of Woxsen University and implemented by the School of Technology and School of Arts & Design
Woxsen University's next-generation creators and innovators collaborated to create DISHA, a robot that was successfully launched at the Global Impact Summit 2022.
“DISHA, which stands for 'Discrete Interactive Smart & Heterogeneous Agent,' includes a camera for live streaming, motion sensors with a head tracking feature, and a programmed voice system to assist the user while interacting. It also consists of a 7-inch display for visual assistance, and the base with three Gear DC Motors that allows it to move smoothly with the help of a joystick”, says Manjith Kumar Reddy, B.Tech – Data Science & AI (2020-24).
“DISHA includes 2 core modules i.e., functionalities in terms of technical aspects from the School of Technology and culminating interactive product design from the School of Arts & Design”, says Dr Kiran Ravulakollu – Dean, School of Technology, Woxsen University.
The team behind DISHA is an eclectic mix of B.Tech and B.Des mentored by faculty and lab technicians.
