The Robotics Society, VSSUT BURLA recently won numerous laurels and has ensconced its name in these fields, as being one of the best robotics societies amongst various NITs and IITs.
The team of VSSUT Robotics Society concluded its respective participations in e-yantra, DRUSE and SIH.
VSSUT Robotics Society came out with flying colours in the recently held robotics’ mega event e-yantra, an initiative by IIT, Bombay, sponsored by MHRD. e-yantra is a national level altar, conducted every year, in which students from various technical institutes are handed up with real world challenges that demand for practical solutions. This year, the competition aimed at serving problems faced in the agricultural level. This awesome robotics competition lasts for 6 long months and invites participants from all over the nation, with participation from 280+ colleges and more than 10,000 students in the competition. VSSUT Robotics Society, Team e-yantra (Partha Sarathy, Alok Senapati, Ashis Kumar Maharana and Vikram Keshari Panda) secured AIR 2 in the e-yantra finals and bagged a prize money of Rs 16,000 along with a bot implementing the theme of Automating Seed Plantation. The event has always been a great learning curve for the newborn technocrats to achieve great heights and to gain a lot of practical knowledge.
In addition to the glory, another team of VSSUT Robotics Society represented in the DRDO Robotics and Unmanned Systems Exposition (DRUSE) in the east zone (zonal round). The DRDO Robotics and Unmanned Systems Exposition (DRUSE) is designed to serve as an open platform to popularize and synergize the national talents in various areas of robotics amongst students for conceptualization, design & development of unmanned systems for various defence applications. A team of VSSUT Robotics (Kashish Rath, Sneha Mukherjee, Kaushani Das, Manisha Mishra and Suchita Sriramka) built a UGV, having it’s mobility in air, water and land and bagged a cash prize of Rs. 10,000. The sincere efforts of the team and their hard work let them to a height where they can now show that they’ve probably not the best, but better than the best Robotics Society.
Our Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, envisages a Digital India to bridge the digital divide in our country and further promotes digital literacy in order to make development a comprehensive mass movement and put governance within everyone’s reach in India. In order to work towards our PM’s vision, MHRD, AICTE, i4C, and Persistent Systems organized Smart India Hackathon, a unique initiative to identify new and disruptive digital technology innovations for solving the challenges faced by our country. Smart India Hackathon 2018 was a non-stop digital product development competition, where problems were posed to the technologically advanced students for innovative solutions. For giving a great hand to the innovative solutions, two teams led by Aklesh Kumar Malla and Parameswar Panda from the Robotics Society represented VSSUT, Burla in India’s biggest national hackathon and were shortlisted from amongst participants all over India, for the following problem statements:
- Ministry of Power- Prediction of load demand and power availability
- Ministry of Social Injustice- Sign to speech conversion for differently abled persons.
Both the teams represented their innovative solutions in the best possible way and came out with their name stamped at top 10 among all the other teams.
“All these achievements not only encouraged aspirants, but also created a path to bring glory and standards to our University…”
