Dr Elango

DR ELANGO WINS BEST PAPER AWARD AT INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON ROBOTICS AND MANUFACTURING AUTOMATION (IEEE ROMA 2018)

Assistant Professor Dr Elango Natarajan |  Head of Research, Faculty of Engineering, Technology and Built Environment.

Winning the Best Paper Award at the 2018 IEEE 4th Symposium on Robotics and Manufacturing Automation (IEEE-ROMA 2018), was truly a memorable moment for Assistant Professor Dr Elango Natarajan, Head of Research from the Faculty of Engineering, Technology and Built Environment.    

The awards presentation was held at Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Engineering College, Perambalur, TN, India with around 110 participants.

Dr Elango’s paper was entitled “Design and Development of A Robot Gripper For Food Industries Using Coanda Effect”. The Coanda principle uses the pressure changes locally present inside the gripper to handle soft objects such as meat, vegetables, paper or fabric. It is a new idea applied in robotics for handling these fragile and soft objects.
