Makery is RBCCPS’s Maker space and enables us to make prototypes combining mechanical, electronics, software and algorithmic elements.


This lab is equipped with :

  • Manual and power tools
  • SMPS power supplies
  • Batteries (Lead-acid, Li-ion, Li-poly) and chargers
  • Electronic instruments (Oscilloscope, soldering station, signal generator, LCR meter, etc.)
  • Development boards (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP8266)
  • Modules (communication, motor drivers, display, sensors, analog modules, etc.)
  • Sensors and actuators
  • ICs & discrete semi-conductor devices
  • Electronic passives (Resistor, capacitor and inductor assortment)
  • Motors (DC, DC geared, RC servo, DC servo, stepper, BLDC) and motor-drives
  • 3D printers 

We are developing a custom wind-shape facility which will be setup in IISc’s airfield. This facility will enable emulating different wind turbulence scenarios inorder to test Drones.

In addition, a campus scale drone testbed consisting of a set of Drone Ports is being setup. The drone ports will provide charging, sensing and navigation facilities.

We are setting up a campus scale 5G network testbed to support research in both the communication technologies as well as applications for V2X:  like remote driving, driver assists, driverless vehicles, BVLOS for Drones etc. We have identified this setup at our new campus in Challkere which is spread over 1500acre area and will test it on a 10km road circuit.


We have a collection of off-the-shelf robots as well as Makery-made robots.

The off-the-shelf robots include:

  • Turtle Bot 
  • Yaskawa GP8, 
  • TI’s Robot Systems Learning Kit

In addition, we are custom developing a walking robot platform – the Stoch series.

Artificial Intelligence will completely redefine our society & businesses, adding $15.7 trillion in new economic value globally by 2035 (PWC Research). However, gains from this major revolution in AI might be unequally distributed to a chosen few – if the current path of AI technology evolution continues. The developing world, where more than 6 billion of the global population lives, might miss the impact of this major revolution.
