Introduction

The National Center of Robotics and Automation is a consortia of 11 labs over 13 universities of Pakistan with its center headquarter at NUST College of E&ME. The center will serve as a leading technological hub within the domain of Robotics and Automation.

Vision

To manage and efficiently use the highly skilled researchers, scientists and experts of robotics and automation in order to generate resources based on our innate strengths towards transforming Pakistan into one of the technologically advanced nations of the world.

Mission

To facilitate the highly skilled researchers, scientists and experts of robotics and automation by creating a consortia of advanced labs throughout the country, and to ensure that the research and development is contributing towards the Vision of NCRA.


Objectives

  1. Build national capacity to carry out R&D in the emerging field of Robotics and Automation by solving at least a small number of ‘hard’ problems identified and mutually agreed by a scientific committee comprising of local and international experts
  2. Solve local problems and take solutions to market through technology commercialization and licensing
  3. Provide high-value shared services to academia, startups and industrial partners
  4. Human Resource Development in Robotics and Automation
