When he received the communication from the Commerce Ministry confirming his appointment with Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of State for Commerce and Industry for September 5, Niranjan C G just could not believe his eyes.

This youngster, a final year engineering student of PSG College of Technology, is the founder and Chief Executive of a start-up Nizan Robotics Pvt Ltd.

He admits to having sought an appointment, explaining his passion in robotics and the various projects he had undertaken since 2011, the robots developed to aid all sectors of the industry by customisation and the patent filed for one of his product. “I had requested for guidance to proceed in an organised channel by contributing to Make in India policy,” Niranjan told this correspondent, adding “the minister spared a full half-hour, listened patiently, asked how I am planning to scale this venture and so on.”

“I told her that for scaling up, we will need funds and possible technical collaboration with bigger players to make products market viable.”

The Minister then hinted that a conference on Smart Cities is slated later this year. “You can make a presentation there,” she added.

Asked to explain the services rendered by Nizan Robotics, he said “we concentrate on robotics and automation, Internet of Things, energy and consumer electronics to create turnkey operations. Application areas include bio-medical, vehicular telematics, production and process planning, energy and environmental engineering, industrial automation and software development.”

“Imagine a factory with a production facility in some other part of the world. One can sit here and monitor the processes, and if there is emission of some gas, the sensor will immediately signal and one can take control from this end. That’s the level of automation we are working on,” he explained.

Nizan Robotics is now gearing up for the commercial launch of a general controller for auto mobiles. This product is expected to be rolled out by end of year.

Niranjan said that it would control the peripherals of the vehicle such as battery, light etc.

The company comprises a 32-member team of engineering graduates across various domains such as production, mechanical, mechanical design and product aesthetics, auto mobile engineering, electronics and communication, metallurgy and civil engineering.

“We are awaiting the patent for our product - “system and method for control and operation of hyper configurable humanoid robots”, he said
