A Medical Cobotics Center (MCC) is to be established at IIIT Delhi, India’s first. MCC will be a medical simulation and training facility that utilizes cutting-edge technology. Urology, neurology, laparoscopy, and other medical specialties will be taught at various levels (basic and advanced). a joint Medical Cobotics Center will be established by IIT Delhi and IIITD (MCC). There are hopes that the MCC will encourage the development of new technologies in the United States. Various TIHs will be able to display their medical-related projects and products at the event.

- a joint Medical Cobotic Center will be established by IIT Delhi and IIITD.
- There are hopes that the Mcc will encourage the development of new technologies in the U.S. and encourage the use of medical robots in the medical field.
- The first group of trainees will be put through their paces on rudimentary training simulators.
- The next stage will see the introduction of sophisticated surgical robots.
Medical Cobotics Centers (MCCs) have been established at Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT) and the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT).
IIT Delhi’s Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) and IIIT Delhi’s iHub Anubhuti signed an MoU on November 17 in Ashutosh Sharma, former DST secretary, and K.R. Murali Mohan, mission director of NM-ICPS, DST.
MCC will be a medical simulation and training facility for new resident doctors that utilizes cutting-edge technology to improve patient outcomes. Healthcare robotics and digital health research will be validated at this facility. Other healthcare workers, paramedics, technicians, engineers, and researchers could all benefit from the center’s resources.
Experts from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, Jodhpur, and other prestigious medical colleges will serve as guest faculty to help design the training programs. It is planned to offer training in a variety of areas, including neurology, laparoscopy, urology, and more.
In April or May of 2022, the first group of trainees will be put through their paces on some rudimentary training simulators. The next stage will see the introduction of sophisticated surgical robots. The MCC will provide space and services for medical schools in the Delhi NCR area according to plans.
under the DST’s National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NMCPS), the government of India has provided funding for the TIHs (NM-ICPS).
Engineers at IIT and IIIT Delhi and others in India, such as the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), have strong ties to one another. Robotic surgery, training, and other medical procedures will benefit greatly from the advanced technologies developed at these two centers, which are devoted to medical robotics and cobotics development as well as digital health.
“We are happy to associate with IIITD for the joint Medical Cobotics Center,” IIT Delhi director V. Ramgopal Rao said in regards to the collaboration between the two Technology Innovation Hubs” (MCC). In order to develop technologies that benefit society as a whole, researchers from a variety of academic institutions must collaborate. To see two of Delhi’s top institutions working together to promote medical robot technology is a welcome development.”
Ranjan Bose, the director of IIIT Delhi, agreed. When the Department of Science and Technology (DST) asked us to create an Information Technology Hub (TIH) in the broad field of Cognitive Sciences and Social Sensing, we accepted the challenge.” These technologies are essential for the development of newer robotics, particularly for medical and digital health applications. It is my firm belief that this partnership will have a significant impact on the industry and help to move the needle.”
Ashutosh Dutt Sharma, CEO of IHFC, IIT Delhi, and project director S.K. Saha talked about the origins of the MCC concept. When it comes to developing and validating new medical technologies, India has none. The country has several medical simulation centers for teaching resident doctors. With the MCC, our Prime Minister’s vision of transforming India into Atmanirbhar should become a reality. Also, the NM-ICPS TIHs will be able to display their medical-related projects and products with applications here.”
