All of us, at some point in our lives have thought of at least one problem that needs an immediate solution. Some people work towards bringing about that change in order to make it easier to find a solution.
With the aim of solving the problem of ‘debugging’ and to help people build their projects, Agilo Technologies was founded in August 2015 with a vision of transforming technology landscape in India and worldwide, primarily with innovations in Robotics, Automation and Design.
The startup is an outcome of a friendship that was built over an Under-Water Surveillance Robot. The co-founders of the Agilo Technologies, Abhishek Sharma, Dhrupal R Shah, Akshat Agarwal and Pankaj K Verma, former students of IIT Kanpur believe that ‘‘Without technology, humanity is inhuman!’’.
After working with other companies on several robotics and automation projects, the flagship one being working on design, control systems and software of a Catalyst Unloading Robot with Reliance Industries Limited, they aim at transforming the maker space with their first consumer product – Evive.
“The name evive derives its meaning from a combination of ‘e’ and ‘vive’. vive is french for HAVING A long life. With evive, your ‘e’lectronics can ‘vive’!”
Evive is an open-source embedded platform for all age groups to help them learn, build, debug their robotics, embedded and other projects. Abhishek, one of the co-founders of Agilo Technologies emphasizes the uniqueness of their first consumer product.
‘’Evive is one of a kind, it incorporates everything a maker would need. Its uniqueness lies in the wide variety of applications it can cater to. From helping students in learning and making projects to using the plug & play interface and enabling researchers to perform valuable experiments using data acquisition module.’’
It’s difficult to comprehend a bunch of undergrad kids managing their academics along with hustling to build such a complex and multi-layered organization. But Abhishek feels that there is a fun of its own kind in balancing the two lives simultaneously.
“If you put your mind to it, you’ll be able to get through. Though a double life takes away the freedom of working full time in a startup, but that only expands the time scales of working.’’
With a “Sooner or later, you’ll eventually accomplish what you were trying to” attitude and the aim of “building a community around Evive”, Agilo will ultimately hopes to develop technologies for solving complex real world problems and would play a significant role in shaping technological landscape in the country.
They plan to venture soon into service robotics and make significant contributions towards technological progress of mankind.
“A day should come when evive reaches plenty of schools, maker hubsand research laboratories and could become a reason behind tons of constructive innovations.’’
