Woxsen University’s next-generation creators and innovators collaborated to create DISHA, a robot that was successfully launched at the Global Impact Summit 2022.

DISHA, which stands for ‘Discrete Interactive Smart & Heterogeneous Agent,’ includes a camera for live streaming, motion sensors with a head tracking feature, and a programmed voice system to assist the user while interacting. It also consists of a 7-inch display for visual assistance and a base with three Gear DC Motors that allows it to move smoothly with the help of a joystick”, says Manjith Reddy, B.Tech – Data Science & AI (2020-24).

“DISHA includes 2 core modules i.e., functionalities in terms of technical aspects from the School of Technology and culminating interactive product design from the School of Arts & Design”, says Dr. Kiran Ravulakollu – Dean, School of Technology, Woxsen University.

In terms of user convenience, Rohan B Chandy, B.Des – Product Design (2019-23) said, “We worked to derive a functional form that is user-friendly, with an emphasis on ergonomics. We attempted to give it a futuristic feel by bringing the future into the present.”


The team behind DISHA is an eclectic mix of B.Tech and B.Des mentored by faculty and lab technicians.
