IIT Madras to develop astronaut training for Indian Space Flight Programs

February 6, 2023

The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) will develop a training module for the Indian Spaceflight Program using Augmented, Virtual or Mixed Reality, an outcome of a collaboration with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).

ISRO would utilize the advanced technologies created at the newly established eXperiential Technology Innovation Centre (XTIC) at IIT Madras to promote Research and Development (R&D) in the domain of Extended Reality.

A MoU was signed recently between ISRO and IIT Madras for collaboration on the application of Extended Reality (XR) and other technologies in the Indian Human Spaceflight Program.

Prof M Manivannan, Department of Applied Mechanics, IIT Madras, and Principal Investigator, XTIC-IIT Madras, said, “XR Technologies has the potential to add value in many aspects of human spaceflight program specifically in shortening the design cycle and simulating the space environment. We will start with developing models of physiological systems as well as design optimization studies. IIT Madras ecosystem is conducive not-only for research, but also for development with our industrial consortium.”

Some of the key purported outcomes of this collaboration include Modelling and Simulation of human physiology as well as space systems, Outreach activities, Visualization and optimization of design architecture and Training ISRO scientists in developing their own XR systems.
