The 18 member Robotics team finally reaped the results of their hard work by bagging the 27th rank at ROBOCON 2015. The team also managed to bag the top spot in the state beating NIT, Rourkela and NIST, Berhampur amongst other participants.
ROBOCON 2015 was held at MIT, Pune and 89 teams had participated this year including various IITs and NITs. The event was held from 5th to 7th March. Preceding the matches was a round of technical inspections in which our team did excellently. The first round was to win a set of league matches. Team VSSUT had to face the defending champions, i.e. the team from NIRMA, University in the very first match. They played really well but unfortunately lost it. They were next up against PVPIT, Sangli and emerged as winners with a great margin in the match. This win gained the team the 27th rank nationally and the top spot in the state.
The team had been working very hard from the month of January for the completion of the two robots as per the problem statement. They overcame a lot of problems including those of sponsorships and balancing their classes with the club activities. They anyway managed to complete the robots in time. The team was led by 3rd year CSE student, Manikanta Behera, also the secretary of the Robotics Society. Rest of the members were a mixture of 1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year students from all branches. “Although we wish we had done better but overall it was a great learning experience. I am glad we managed to be the best from our state. We learned from our mistakes and hope to do much better next time” said secy.
