A workshop on “Process of Innovative development & Technology Readiness Level(TRL) was organized by Department of Electronics & Communication in collaboration with Institution Innovation Council of Chandigarh Engineering College. The speaker, Prof. (Dr.) Satish Kumar, Sr. Principal Scientist, ACSIR, CSIO, Chandigarh, discussed many innovative ways of technology readiness level to the students and faculty members.
The speaker started with the concept of TRLs which can allow engineers to have an understanding of readiness for particular technology, its evolution, scope and how to achieve its top level regardless of their technical background. He stated the TRLs measure of maturity level of a technology throughout its research, development and deployment phase progression. He further explained the scaling based system from 1 to 9, with 9 being the most mature technology. Further many examples related to demonstration to go ahead were discussed with industry revolution concept, capabilities required for Industry 4.0 revolution and role of IoT and other technologies to ease out the concept. Scientific observations based on semi-integrated system/model of technology and supporting elements in a simulated environment were also presented. He explained the system prototype & its operational environment using the knowledge flow diagram.
