presented by
IEEE Robotics and Automation Society,VIT Chennai
School of Electronics Engineering,VIT Chennai



The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society's objectives are scientific, literary and educational in character. The Society strive for the advancement of the theory and practice of Robotics and Automation Engineering Sciences, for the maintenance of high professional standards among its members, all in consonance with the constitutional bylaws of IEEE and with special attention to such aims within the field of interest of the society.


Our Mission is to provide an environment for students to grow and nurture their talents under the efficient guidance of reputed IEEE and industrial experts and keep the students updated with the latest trends and technologies and promote their researches and projects worldwide, with the Vision of being the most recognized and respected global organization in Robotics and Automation.

RAS endeavours to advance innovation, education, and fundamental and applied research in robotics and automation. Robotics research emphasizes intelligence and adaptability to cope with unstructured environments. Automation research emphasizes efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability, bringing into focus the systems that operate autonomously, often in explicitly structured environments over extended periods.

The Society fosters the blooming of close cooperation and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge in Robotics and Automation that benefits members, the profession and humanity. It holds meetings for the presentation of papers, sponsors special technical publications, and through its committees studies and provides for the needs of its members and affiliates.

Present Ideas



“International Symposium on Robotics and Automation” - ISRA 2020, is to be held on the month of July. This event is poised to feature a multitude of breakthroughs in the area of Robotics and Automation in our country and is primarily intended for the benefit of students.

The Symposium comprises two parts, namely Paper Presentation and Idea Presentation. In our quest to leave no stone unturned, both sessions have been designed to incorporate participation from all categories of students right from the schooling level to the post-graduation level. The topics for the presentation range from biomedical robotics to aerial and terrestrial guided vehicles, encompassing all critical realms of research and development including, but not restricted to intelligent robotics, security applications and mechanisms like mobile manipulators. Also being dealt with, will be entries pertaining to the 4th wave of industrialization such as the internet of things, smart manufacturing and cognitive computing among others.

The Paper Presentation will function as an excellent platform for young, ambitious research students who have put their acquired knowledge and skill to the fore and come forward to showcase their enterprising work. Exemplary presentations have an opportunity to get recognized profusely by virtue of the superlative reach of the event.

The Idea Presentation is chiefly conducted to cater to the multifarious desiderata of budding research aspirants who are at the outset of their professional careers, but nevertheless, would feature novel and path-breaking projects from all students. An audacious idea is the spark that ignites the wildfire of technological innovation, and the audience are bound to witness many an idea of said nature during the course of this session.

The Symposium would be embellished with an abundance of insightful interactions by eminent luminaries from the field of RAS and beyond, which would enrich the students with invaluable information and cognizance that would prove fruitful in the quests we wish our students to undertake and hope to be prepared for on the back of it.

The symposium proceeding will follow.The best papers will be published accordingly.

Skype Submissions are accepted only for Foreign Submissions.

Event is postponed to July 2020 from March 2020 in view of COVID-19. Submissions have been Extended.
