Centre for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence


Centre for Material Science and Energy Studies: (CMS-ES)

ABOUT:


The LNMIIT created the LNMIIT- Centre for Robotics and artificial Intelligence (L-CRAI) as part of its select focused sustainable innovation-enablement and technology based opportunity creation initiatives having potential to enable early as well as long-term benefits to the campus, society and the nation. The L-CRAI would be encouraged to become an innovation, research and development hub around which not only LNMIIT but also many other institutions in the vicinity might get enabled over the years.

Goals & Objectives
