Abhinav Singh Thakur: Part (I)
I am an Electronics Engineer and I am from India. I have done study in biology science and mathematics science. I am working actively in robotics field in the last 4 years. I hold good skills in robotics architecture, electronic system control and a bit of programming. I have worked on a project based on Humanoid Robot named "Anthropoid" which was my college project. Currently, I am working on a project named "Exoskeleton". Also, I have started a research on "Cyborg", a rat nervous system and electronics peripherals.
I am proprietor of an organization Open Robotics Club, which aims is to promote robotics and provide robotics education worldwide. We provide training and develope programs to school and college students in the field of robotics.
What inspired your interest in robots / robotics?
I have been interested in robotics since I was a kid. I have always been fascinated by hi-tech gadgets and sci-fi movies. During my childhood, I always tried to make some automatically functional circuits and logics. In 2003, I read an article in a local news paper on "Cyborg" by Kevin Warwick which made a great impact on my mind. As this new trend of robotics came more into limelight, I started my higher studies in biological science first and then in mathematical science, so that I could realize how biological bodies work and how machines operate, and how we could utilize this evolution into robotics. I started working on robotic circuits and projects in 2008 with some basic robots (line follower, obstacle avoider, semi-automatic control robots) and later on I moved onto advanced robotics practice.
Sci-Fi movies, videos and games such as Robocop, Buzz Lightyear, Terminator, Transformer, Minority Report, I-Robot and one of my favorites Iron man left a quick and hard impact on my mind.
