Nokia creates Robotics Centre of Excellence

Finnish telecoms giant Nokia has announced a partnership with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to create a first-ever Nokia Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Networked Robotics.

The CoE will be based at the IISc in Bengaluru and according to Nokia will aim to promote interdisciplinary research involving robotics and advanced communication technologies in 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Research projects undertaken by the CoE will include the design of advanced robotics, AI and automation solutions built upon next generation telecom networks and their applications.

Professor Govindan Rangarajan, director at IISc, said: “Next generation communication technologies like 5G and 6G will contribute enormously to the growth of India’s economy.

“Our collaboration with a world-class company like Nokia will enable us to explore new frontiers for advanced technology research to benefit society as well as provide state-of-the-art training to our students to enable them to become technology leaders in the coming decades.”

The centre will also develop use cases across industrial automation, agriculture and disaster management. Nokia will fund the CoE for three consecutive years in order to sustain the first phase of the partnership between Nokia and IISc.
