e-Yantra Robotics Competition for college students

Project e-Yantra is an initiative to spread education in Embedded systems and Robotics by IIT Bombay and sponsored by Ministry of Human Resource Development under the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT). This project was conceptualized by Prof.Kavi Arya and Prof. Krithi Ramamritham of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Bombay.
What is this competition about?
It is all about getting a robot to solve a useful problem. The emphasis is on the software side or programming as all participating teams are provided the same robot. However, there could be an element of building external features as required by the assignment expected from participants but this will be of a very basic level - doable by ANY engineering student.

open to college students FREE of charge. 
As long as you are a keen programmer or know some programming in “C” language you can get going. It is important that you have the desire or aptitude to learn whatever skills are required to complete the given task. e-Yantra team will provide adequate instructions as required.

No registration fee. In fact, e-Yantra provides the team with a robotic kit, which is used in the competition. e-Yantra will provide sensors and actuators (as part of the Robotic kit) to the participating teams. However, if the problem assigned requires accessories to build structures on the robot, the team will have to bear the cost of such accessories. The team will need to make their own arena (usually an inexpensive “flex sheet” based passive arena) for the task assigned to them. Teams selected as Finalists to participate in the Grand Finale which is conducted at IIT Bombay in February – March, every year have to bear the cost of to and fro travel and some incidental expenses to participate in the finals (train fares permissible as per the competition rules will be reimbursed to the team members on arrival to participate in the competition).

Registration Starts from

1st August, 2015
