Our Goal

The goal of Assistive Technology Lab (ATL) is to assist people with disabilities so that they can lead better and productive lives. No person should be left behind due to a disability. ATL will provide an engineering resource to design, develop and produce devices that will benefit the disabled and medical community as well. The ATL facilities of SVES (Sri Vishnu Education Society) at the three campuses in India – Narsapur, Hyderabad, and Bhimavaram,  will work alongside the Assistive Technology Research Center at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell  to develop technologies and reach out to the society at a global level.

Snapshot

Assistive Technology Lab (ATL) is the brain-child of our visionary and driving force Mr. K. V. Vishnu Raju, Chairman SVES. It works in collaboration with a team from University of Massachusetts Lowell, USA. ATL provides an excellent platform to the budding engineering students to utilize and apply their technical skills to help the differently able individuals to lead an independent and confident life. It beautifully culminates the science with the society thus inculcating compassion and social responsibility in the amateur engineers. The legacy still continues as we deliver proof of concept products on December 3rd every year on the International Day of People with Disabilities. Feedback collected from a wide base of clients helps and motivates ATL to come out with a final prototype that can be widely utilized by the population. An encounter with real problems in the society and the mission of taking this technology to the masses also spurs entrepreneurial spirit in the current generation.
