nical
organisations
have favoured
Japanese
the formation of a 'Robotic
Ass*
ciation
of India'.
The proposal was made
during
a
threeday
symposium
-
Inter-
national Symposium on Measure-
ments and Control
in
Robotics
(ISMCR)
2008
-
here on
Friday.
The symposium, jointly
organised
by
IEEE,
Bangalore
and
IMEKO,

38

ISMCR in

with the idea of
disseminating information on

An
interesting presentation
was from Japan by
Prof
Masahiko
Inami
of Graduate School of
Me-
dia Design, Keio University,
Tokyo, who
said:
"My
aim
is
to
augment real world with comput-
er graphics
...
A
doctor wouldn't
need an X-ray to detect a brain
tu-
mow
and would perhaps
be
able
to see which side of the brain is to
be operated upon, with robotic
techniques."
While the researchers evinced
optimism over the possibilities of
robotics, they felt that little atten-
tion was being paid to it in re-
search. "It governs
25
per cent of
all
machinations, then
why
not
give it the attention it requires?
I
think we must have some sort of
association for Robotics
in
India
that brings together talent
from
various sectors here," said Dr
Taqvi.
