UVC-PURGE: A Semi-Autonomous Virus Disinfection Robot [Ref] [Ref]
To fight against COVID-19 Pandemic, This robot has been equipped with six T5 UVC (254 nm) lamps to effectively destroy the SARS-CoV-2 virus (coronavirus) in a standard 12′ x 16′ room with a disinfection time of 2-3 minutes. The Robot provides real-time camera feedback for better navigation. While disinfecting this semi-autonomous robot is capable enough to avoid any obstacles in that room. UVC- PURGE is very user-friendly and can be controlled by a mobile app or computer platform with a 1600 square feet coverage area and provides a battery backup of 2 hours. It applies to any indoor environment such as an Empty COVID patient ward, Empty ICU, Operation Theatre, Office room, Classroom, Corridor, Personal Apartment, etc. At a market price of less than 800$ UVC-PURGE is extremely cost-effective than similar types of disinfection robots worldwide. It was recognized in the Medical Robotics Challenge for Contagious Disease 2020 organized by the UK Robotics & Automation Society (UK-RAS) Network as UVC-PURGE-MIST (Bangladesh) snatched the Championship in Application criteria in parallel with John Hopkins University (USA) in Innovation and Leeds University (UK) in Design. The team received £5,000 as prize money and a grant for their research. 

University Rover Challenge 2021: MIST Mongol Barota (Phoenix) [Ref]
PHOENIX was systematically built to achieve all the missions given by URC 2021. With an outstanding score of 92.78% in the System Acceptance Review (SAR), MIST Mongol Barota was selected for the URC 2021 Final while the qualification benchmark was 77.7%. Following the success of the System Acceptance Review, team MIST Mongol Barota has topped among all the teams of the University Rover Challenge (URC) Virtual Final 2021 with a total score of 180 by attaining a perfect score (100) in Equipment Servicing Mission and 2nd Highest Score(80) in Extreme Retrieval and Delivery Mission.

Automated Coordinate Measurement Robot: Undergraduate thesis 2021 [Ref]
A robotic system is designed and fabricated for automated 3D reconstruction of objects by contact digitization. An electromechanical probe with a four-degree-of-freedom robotic arm is used for measuring multiple surface coordinates of an object for digitization.
