    Sastra Robotics to Export 150 AI Robots to the UK

    Sastra Robotics, a start-up incubated under the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM), has recently made a deal with a leading information technology (IT) company in the United Kingdom. The deal involves exporting 150 robots equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) to Britain.

    The AI robots developed by Sastra Robotics are capable of performing quality testing tasks that are beyond the capabilities of humans. These robots are equipped with advanced robotic arms that function similarly to human hands and fingers. They are primarily used to identify defects in various industries such as mobile, space, defense, banking, and sophisticated equipment.

    Aronin Ponnappan, the co-founder and CEO of Sastra Robotics, expressed his pride in the project, stating that the development of these robots adds to the success of initiatives such as ‘Made in Kerala’ and ‘Make in India’.

    What sets these robots apart is that they have been completely designed and developed in Kerala, showcasing the growing capabilities of the region’s technological advancements. The incorporation of AI technology into these robots allows them to minimize human intervention in identifying hardware and software failures in electronic devices with touch screens. Additionally, they can predict the causes of these failures.

    This partnership between Sastra Robotics and the UK IT company not only highlights the success and potential of Indian start-ups but also demonstrates the global demand for advanced AI technology in various industries.

    Overall, the export of these AI robots to the UK marks a significant achievement for Sastra Robotics and reinforces India’s position in the global AI robotics market.
