Creating a future where local communities can use robotics for social good

We are a Nepali innovation lab that focuses on solving local challenges and needs through the use of appropriate robotics & AI technologies.

What we do

We act as an expert’s center to develop local capacity for the use of appropriate robotics solutions in humanitarian, development, health and environmental efforts in Nepal.

We provide training, equipment and data processing expertise and help incubate new local drone-based service providers. We foster local demand by working together with local, national and international organisations in conducting robotics-related projects.

As a non-profit organisation, we focus on projects that directly benefit human life and the surrounding natural environment.

WeRobotics carried out joint trainings at Kathmandu University with Technology Partners DJI and Pix4D in 2015. Trainings focused on the use of aerial robotics (UAVs) for disaster preparedness and response including best practices, lessons learned, standard operating procedures and imagery processing.

Environmental projects with KU

Environmental projects with KU

With the training receiving from WeRobotics and donated DJI Phantoms, Kathmandu University carried out environmental projects in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) around the Kaligandaki river, one of the largest rivers in Nepal. Kathmandu University also trained their Geomatics Engineering students on how to use DJI Phantoms and Pix4D to create 3D models.

Uttam is a Geomatics Engineer from Kathmandu University (KU), Nepal. He is the co-founder of a startup company called Naxa Pvt. Ltd. based in Kathmandu, which has been working to introduce Geo-informatics as a vital domain for development. He has also served as the President of Geomatics Engineering Society, a student run professional club at KU. Uttam also conducts training sessions for professionals on Geographic Information Systems. His particular interest is in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Their many applications prompted him to research and learn about how they are operated as well as how the images captured by them can be processed and used for good.
Uttam is passionate about GIS, Data Mapping, and UAV Photogrammetry. He is now a UAV Technical Consultant at Build Change, an American NGO working on reconstruction and rehabilitation in Nepal after the 2015 earthquake. Uttam and his team have been winner of the International Space Apps Challenge 2014 Kathmandu event, organized by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and YoungInnovations.
