ROBOTIX is a national level robotics competition held in KSHITIJ, the
annual Techno-Management Fest of the Indian Institute of Technology
Kharagpur. This year, it will be held from 2nd 5th February, 2006.
Robotix endeavors to bring the creative talent of the youth in the
field of robotics into limelight. Robotix presents you a chance to
bring out the best in you, to prove your mettle. It's a challenge
game... where machines dare!
Brace yourself for the impact of the best brains in the country
matching fire against each other in a battle arena specially laid out
by one of the finest engineering institutes of the country. If that
level of intellectual satisfaction has not stroked your imagination
yet, try considering the cash prizes worth Rs. 1.75 Lakhs( ~US $3500)
to be won.
If you have often fantasized about the power of raw intelligence
shaping the actions of inane materials juxtaposed into one shining
example of synchronization, Artificial Intelligence is waiting to
explode inside your cranium!!!
We present you an event which will crack your grey cells - and it
requires nothing more than online submission.
Mission Mars - Explore the Red Planet!
A continuing trend in our world of Robotix, Mission Mars has become a
cult following and won laurels, jobs and much more for coding
enthusiasts. The complex collective social behavior of groups of ants,
each by itself performing innocuously simple tasks is a revelation of
nature's hidden order embedded in all enveloping chaos. From building
gigantic structures to mind boggling coordination when hunting, these
aspects of swarm intelligence have led researchers to explore their
applications in fields like robotics, search, navigation, and
collaborative task handling.
And now, NASA has decided to mimic the ant in its future efforts to
explore the belt of asteroids that lie between Mars and Jupiter and
the Martian surface itself. Your task is to code robot ants which can
coordinate among themselves during their mission and to help them
probe as much area of the planet as possible. But remember time is a
You may write your code in C/C++/Java. Check out this link for details.
Ahem..yes indeed, we do have the familiar cash prizes lined up for
grabs again. Prizes worth $1000 are being offered. Even better - all
you need to do is to submit the code to us ONLINE!!
To help you out we have uploaded some power point presentations on
various relevant topics on the website.
