Chennai, India (PressExposure) July 18, 2011 -- Students Clinch top honors at World Championship Awards
~ 8 students from Bharath University swept the title at 'Super Team World Championship Awards' ~
Students of Bharath University battled hard to clinch the 'Super Team World Championship Awards' at the Robocup 2011' held recently at Istanbul - Turkey between 5th July and 11th July 2011. A team of 8 students displayed brilliant effort in the Dance Competition for building Bioloid & Legos Robots and bagged the honor. Around 1200 teams from 73 countries across the world participated in the RoboCup 2011 organised by Bogazici University. Bharath University students had participated in 2 leagues out of 18 leagues.
The team staged 3 bioloid robots and 5 legos Robots for the dance competition. The robots were designed with Server motors and sensors such as ultrasonic sensor, sound sensor and line sensors. The Robots are programmed to dance according to the commands of the masters. Also, the students infused some creativity in the design by assembling the bioloid robots in the shape of a Dog and Spider. As a norm of 'Super Team World Championship Awards, 3-4 countries were grouped together to compete for the title. Roboin team was grouped together with Portugal and Singapore teams for the competition. The key challenge was to coordinate all the robots to respond to the same command given by their master. Through their impeccable performance, they bagged the award.
The balance created by the students in the robot is said to help further research in the robotics field. The robots were built with the C language, C #, robo+ and lejo. The background study of bioloid robot enabled the students to map a concept and scenario within a night to compete for the award at the final round.
The team that bagged the award comprised of Mr. Ayenampudi Venkata Bhargav (ECE), Mr. Sricharan Sabat (ECE), Mr. Akash Nagpal (Mech), Mr. Abhishek Kumar Sharma (Mech), Mr. Sanidhya (CSE), Mr. Yuvaraj (Mechatronics), Mr. Rajeev Ranjan (EEE) and Mr. Rahul Acharjee (Civil).
Congratulating the achievement of Students, Mr. J. Lakshmi Narayanan, Chancellor of Bharath University, said, "Robotic research is the most happening research across the world. We motivate and encourage students to pursue their research in the field of Robotics. We are also setting up a lab to assist students to visualize their talents. "
On this occasion, Dr. K. P. Thooyamani, Vice Chancellor of Bharath University said, "We congratulate our students who won this honor. Participating in International competitions will help students to think beyond boundaries."
Mr. Jaishankar Bharatharaj, Founder of Roboin said, "Roboin has always been in search of young innovative minds to engage in the field of robotics. We train and engage students in the field of Robotics to design humanoid robots. We have participated in many Robotic competitions representing India and winning honors. We are proud that we are winning more laurels with time."
The students will conduct a live demonstration of the robot built, which helped them bag this commendable award.
