V Janardhan Assistant Professor Department of Mechanical Engineering

Dr Janardhan is faculty in the department of Mechanical Engineering.  Dr Janardhan completed his MS by research from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, in the area of unconventional machining. Having fascination towards developing robots, he completed his PhD in the area of bipedal robotic locomotion from Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad. He proposed various approaches for generating for biped robots to cross obstacles. He has a great interest in developing robots that can assist humans and also work in cooperation with humans. His research interests include multibody dynamics, biped robot locomotion generation, design and development of legged robots, dynamic walking of biped robots, design, analysis and development of aerial manipulators for performing maintenance tasks in hi rise buildings. He has more than 5 years of experience in teaching both UG and PG students. In future he would like to extend his focus towards cooperative robotics using machine learning and artificial intelligence.
