Robotics Club


2016-2017
 
The activities of the club this year took off with One-day Workshop on UAV/Drone Training on 24th October 2016. Under the guidance of Drone expert, Mr. Varun Heta, the students assembled the Drone and made it operational.The highlight of the workshop was the pilot training given to the students on the simulator (virtual drone) so that they could have anexperience to fly a Drone. Next on the list was the two days Firebird V workshop that was organised on 12th -13thDecember 2016. It was conducted bythe in-house faculty members andKrishna Kumar Verma, a student of B.Sc.(Hons) Computer Science. The students learnt about the robotic research platform ‗Firebird V‘ through hands on exercises and also successfully incorporated some of their ideas. Another two-day workshop was conducted on 12th -13th January 2017 on ‗Make Your Own Bot‘ for our students. Pankaj Yadav and Pawan Kumar Mishra, students of B.Sc. (H) Electronics took the lead in conducting the workshop. The students assembled their own Robot controlled by the smartphones. Robo-Race and Robo-Soccer competitions were organised for the participants. On the occasion of National Science Day, the Club had put up a Project Exhibition on 28th February 2017. The exhibition showcased the innovative and real time projects of our students like security alarm, flame detectors, soil moisture mobile alert, Bluetooth and IR controlled lights, automatic hand dryer, lamp-lighting using magnetic sensors and so on. Audience also witnessed a Firebird-V Parade. The two-day inter-college workshoptitled Arduino– an Open-source electronic prototyping platform for designers and hobbyists attracted students from across the Delhi University Colleges. Major attractions of the inaugural function were the lighting of the inaugural automatic lamp based on the magnetic sensors and a ‗Robo March‘ by our students Robin Tomar and ‗Hexapod motion‘ by Pawan Kumar Mishra.The participants were able to assemble and make the bot move and control it with their own smartphones successfully. A Quiz was organized after the workshop to test the information that the students were able to grasp throughout the workshop. Further, a Robo-Race was organized with the robots assembled during the workshop and prizes were given to winners of the race. Two- Day Inter college workshop on ―Make your Own Bot‖ was conducted by in house faculty during 9th -10th March 2017. More than 25 students attended the workshop. Finally, three-day workshop on ―Getting Started with Arduino‖ was conducted for our own students starting on 28th March 2017. The students Pankaj Yadav, Praveen Gond and Robin Tomar conducted the workshop successfully. The involvement of the students in conducting workshops needs special appreciation. Some of their achievements are:
  • Nine teams qualified the online test conducted by e-Yantra, IIT Bombay. In the final task one team from our collegefinished in the fourth placefor the theme ―Model a Terrain‖.
  • Pawan Kumar Mishra and Praveen Kumar, won the first prize and Pankaj Yadav secured the second prize in the Maze-Runner event conducted by Physics and Electronics department of Rajdhani College, DU.
  • Hitesh Garg won the first prize in theRobo-Raceheld during Inter College workshop organised by Robotics Club of DDUC.
  • Pankaj Yadav bagged the first prize in an event ―Project Effect‖, project based on IOT at IIC, University of Delhi.
 
2015-2016
 
The Robotics Club organized three workshops conducted by in house faculty members of the club during 2015-16. First, a three-day workshop was conducted on“FireBird V” in the month of August 2015. Other twowereon “Getting started with Arduino”in the months of January andFebruary, 2016 respectively. The workshop activities stimulated the learning of the participants and someexciting projects were built by students afterwards.
 
Five teams from our college were selected for e-Yantra Robotics Competition(eYRC-2016) conducted by IIT-Bombay. Out of five college teams, three teams were in top 15. The college teamwon the second position in the robotics event “Block Warriors” in Techhertz, the annual festival of Department of Physics and Electronics of Rajdhani College, Delhi University. The team members were Manish Abhishek, Mohit Singh  both from  B.Sc.(H) Physics II year and Pawan Kumar Mishra, B.Sc.(H) Electronics I year.
 
2014-2015
 
The Robotics club was formed in the college in April’2014 as a part of ‘e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative’ (eLSI) programme of IIT Bombay. The members: Dr. Ravinder Kaur, Dr. Rajni, Dr. Anju and Dr. Anil participated in e-Yantra teachers competition(eYTC) held at IIT Bombay in April 2014 and won the consolation prize.
 
The club under the convenership of Dr. Ravinder Kaur organized a three day workshop on “Introduction to Robotics” on 26th, 27th and 29th September 2014. The participants were the students of B.Sc (H) Physics, B.Sc (H) and B.Tech Computers and Electronics. This workshop was conducted by the members of the Robotics club;                Dr. Ravinder Kaur, Dr. Rajni Bala, Dr. Anju Agrawal and Dr. Anil. The main focus of this workshop was to give an insight to the students about the different applications of robots and use of “Fire Bird V”-the dedicated robotic system based on AVR microcontroller. The students were given an extensive practical training on the different aspects of the Fire Bird-V system followed by interactive session and a quiz. The students gave an overwhelming response and expressed their desire for more workshops to be organized in future. 
 
Another two days workshop was organized on “QUADCOPTER” on 9th & 10th January 2015. Dr. Ravinder Kaur and Mr. Ankit Rajpal coordinated this workshop in collaboration with ‘Tryst-2015, IIT-Delhi and RoboSapiens’. 55students attended this workshop, out of which 35 were from our college and rests were from other Colleges and esteemed universities including Ramjas college, AND college, Jamia Milia Islamia, BITS Pilani and Manipal University. 
 
This club has provided a platform to the students to demonstrate their knowledge and programming skills in Embedded systems and Robotics. This is evident from the fact that two student teams from the club participated in e-Yantra Robotics Competition(e-YRC) organized by IIT Bombay in which over 3107 teams across India registered and260 teams were selected for participation. Both the teams from our college were selected.
