SPPU will focus on automotive and engineering clusters

PUBLISH DATE 23rd January 2020

The Savitribai Phule Pune University may soon get a 6,000sqft Centre for Industry 4.0 (C4i4) laboratory equipped with IoT (Internet of Things) lab, experience centres, data centre server and mobile demo kits.

Focus area

To begin with, C4i4 Lab will focus on automotive and engineering clusters. The centre plans to develop an ecosystem that nurtures and promotes industry 4.0. This will include incubation support for start-ups, skill development in partnership with academic institutions and creating a platform for solution companies.

Vice-chancellor Nitin Karmalkar said the university’s students will get internships through the Industry 4.0 lab. The industries, too, will receive assistance for training from various departments, he said.

The centre, a part of the project under the department of heavy industries, aims to provide education on smart manufacturing technologies and develop capabilities with manufacturers to innovate and compete. Currently, there are four such centres at IITDelhi, IISc-Bengaluru and CMTI-Bengaluru, and C4i4 Lab, Pune. The Kirloskar group heads the project in Pune “The Kirloskar group was keen to carry out the project in collaboration with an educational institute and that is when we came into the picture. They had sent a proposal three-four months ago. The group has a small prototype in place near Karve Road, but we are giving them space to relocate on the campus at an existing building with 6,000sqft space and with over Rs6 crore worth of instrumentation facility,” said Karmalkar.

Avinash Joshi, chief executive officer, SPPU Research Park Foundation, said, “Bringing prototypes of factory models on campus will offer multiple benefits to students and teachers. Students will be able to see and experience the practical application of knowledge gleaned through textbooks,” he said.
