CMERI has acquired expertise in the field of Robotic Systems, Control Engineering & other related areas in the course of continued involvement with different project. Initially, capabilities and knowledge had been generated through study and carrying out a number of in-house projects. CMERI had undertaken the development of a vacuum mopping system for spilled heavy water for atomic power plants and has developed the first indigenous 60kg payload SCARA Manipulator for TATA Automation. CMERI was involved actively in the Polymetallic Nodule Mining Program of the Department of Ocean Development, Government of India. CMERI developed the first indigenous Remotely Operated Vehicle for a depth of 200m for the Department of Ocean development, Government of India. Now this Group is embarking upon two new projects on ‘Enhanced ROV for 300m’ for commercial purposes and ‘Autonomous Underwater Vehicle’ in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur for sea-bed mapping and environmental data collection in the depths of the Indian Ocean. CMERI has developed the requisite infrastructure and initiated human resource in the course of these projects.
