Robotics expo draws kids

Photo: Special arrangementIn an increasingly technology-driven world, robotics is seen to have applications in almost all fields. To create awareness among students on this field, a two-day exhibition on robotics was organised by The Western Ghats International School in association with the Robotics Department of P.S.G. College of Technology from Friday.

Air Commodore O.E.M. Menon, Commanding Officer, Air Force Administrative College, inaugurated the event.

The staff of Robotics Department, P.S.G. College of Technology gave a presentation on application of robots in medicine, rescue operations, military, underwater and space.

One of the major attractions was a miniature model of NASA’s Curiosity Rover constructed by students and staff of P.S.G. College of Technology.

The Rover could explore different terrain of the planet and relay information back to the Earth. The college also exhibited models designed to rescue children from borewell pits, clean underground drainage and wipe window panes of high rise buildings.

A robot car race was also organised by students of Bannari Amman Institute of Technology College, Sathyamangalam. The students of Sree Narayana Guru College, Coimbatore, displayed robot models that could be used for security surveillance in banks and museums.

The Bangalore branch of VEX, an American robotic company, displayed robots that carry out industrial work and waste disposal. The Western Ghats International School students also exhibited science models

Chennai based ‘I make robot,’ a firm that designs robots for defence forces and film industry, also displayed its products. Further, Big Bothi Academy, a Coimbatore-based firm, exhibited a humanoid model. Another model that attracted attention was an ‘insect robot’ that could track down animals in the dense Amazon forests. The Hindu is the media partner for the event.
