Robots at IIT-B may help you
204 views

Now, a nationwide competition at IIT-Bombay, E-yantra, will feature robots programmed for several activities. The premier engineering institute plans to upload the know how so that students and even small-scale industries can use the information. Robots coded to clean dust, fill pot holes, detect objects and pick up fruits by identifying their colour, are the four themes that 120 teams from across the country will work on during the competition.

Open source empowers small-scale units by freeing them from the costs of expensive proprietary software licences and forms the basis of low-cost manufacturing of electronics gadgets, said Prof. Kavi Arya, from the computer science and engineering department, who conceptualized the project with Prof. Krithi Ramamritham. The E-yantra website will feature the designs of all robots at the contest. Participants can develop a robot that can detect an explosive simply by adjusting the sensors, added Arya.

He said the competition has been designed to get students involved in such projects. We want to train students in solving real-life problems. The best way was to engage them in a competition instead of just holding workshops, added Arya. Students from several disciplines can participate in the robotics competition by logging on to the website. The last day of registration is July 17.
