It was wonderful representing #MieRobot as a delegate to the Bengaluru Tech summit this year. This year was the 17th edition to Bengaluru India Bio and 3rd Edition of Bengaluru Maker Faire under one umbrella event BENGALURU TECH SUMMIT with the focal theme ‘Ideate, Innovate, Invent’.
Our main focus at MieRobot was to meet startups and engineering colleges who work in space of robotics and UAV and I must say that we were not disappointed.
Let us take a sneak preview of some engineering college stalls we visited and interacted. (In no particular order).
EDHITHA from MS Ramaiah of Technology : EDHITHA means to have progressed and team EDHITHA have done everything right by incorporating a cross-departmental team, putting up a website and also making sure knowledge transition happens when a batch passes out. Great work team EDHITHA. Respect and Kudos from #MieRobot
Team ARCIS from Dayananda Sagar Institution: ARCIS secured 20th place internationally and 1st among Indian teams and secured 17th internationally and 3rd amongst Indian teams in Micro class, SAE Aerodesign east. We loved ARCIS and kudos from #Mierobot
VARUNA from Sri Leo Muthu Innovation centre at Sri SAIRAM college of engineering: Varuna is an AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) which can go to a depth of 50m and can run for 1 hr under continuously. What we liked was the design and the specifications which are shared in their brochure. Coded with Python over a Rasp Pi 2 and Arduino Mega microcontroller Varuna is zippy which left us amazed. Team Varuna ranked as No 1 team in Karnataka in (SAUVC) & (SAVe) 2016 events.
No wonder with such innovations coming from young students we are sure India is on the right track for growth. What is needed now is the growth in these sectors and a scaled up approach towards robotics, design and engineering skills (not just degree).
