L&T Technology Services and IIT Gandhinagar to work together in the areas of AI and Mechatronics

Gandhinagar: The Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) and L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS), a leading global pure-play engineering services company, have initiated discussions to work together to incubate and deliver cutting-edge solutions in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Mechatronics.


The leadership teams of LTTS and IITGN met at the Institute campus today and discussed plans to establish labs, develop collaborative projects, engage students via internships and other mechanisms, and organise workshops and seminars in Smart Manufacturing, Robotics, Bio-Mechatronics and ‘intelligent’ Products and Systems.


This collaboration will propel cutting-edge research and advancements in AI and Mechatronics. LTTS has been focused on building AI solutions which can benefit a multitude of industries. With extensive experience in advanced mechanical engineering spanning multiple industries, LTTS facilitates complex designs and prototyping, product development, virtual and physical product validation, process digitization, and manufacturing process automation, among others. At the same time, IITGN, through its excellent faculty and research, is creating disruptive technologies in the areas of Mechatronics and Robotics for a variety of applications ranging from agricultural robotics to rehabilitation. It is also working on a number of exciting research projects through its advanced AI and Data Science lab.


Prof Amit Prashant, Officiating Director, IITGN, said, “Considering the increasing scope and relevance of integration of AI, Mechatronics, and Robotics, we at IITGN have been advancing research in the field and contributing towards the development of an AI ecosystem. In this respect, the initiation of discussions with an organisation like LTTS will be a step towards creating skilled talent with knowledge and practical training, and will benefit academia with the opportunity to work on relevant technologies.”


Mr Amit Chadha, CEO and Managing Director at L&T Technology Services said, “The interdisciplinary nature of AI in Engineering, Mechatronics, and Robotics presents great opportunities for LTTS and our global clients in this fast-changing world. Our in-depth domain experience and multi-vertical expertise across the engineering value chain holds the key to building a scalable future. I believe this proposed industry-academia collaboration with a premiere scientific institution like IIT Gandhinagar will promote world-class research and will be instrumental in creating a digitally skilled workforce.”
