ISRO has initiated a countrywide robotics competition for students, with the goal of fostering creativity in space robotics. All students nationwide are invited to participate in this challenge.
ISRO is calling upon students to create a wheeled rover for upcoming missions through the ISRO Robotics Challenge (IRC).
This opportunity is available to students nationwide and follows ISRO’s commitment to further robotic exploration of the Moon and beyond, building on the triumph of the Chandrayaan-3 mission’s landing on the Moon’s southern pole in October 2023.
ISRO announced the ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC 2024 (IRoC-U2024) on its official Twitter account, inviting Indian students to create a Space Robot that integrates hardware and software components.
ISRO has launched a Robotics Challenge for students with the goal of promoting creativity in space robotics and offering a stage for students to demonstrate their expertise. Additionally, the competition will enable ISRO to spot promising students who may be considered for future mission roles.
The mobile rover must have the capability to function across diverse settings, such as lunar, Martian, and other extraterrestrial landscapes. Additionally, it should possess the capacity to execute various functions like gathering samples, capturing images, and surveying uncharted terrain.
As per the report by Firstpost, the enrollment for the demanding competition is set to commence on November 20, 2023, and will conclude on December 15, 2023.
ISRO has announced the launch of the ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC 2024 (IRoC-U 2024) to provide students with an opportunity to explore space robotics. The challenge involves engineering teams building robots to compete in a space-themed arena, tackling tasks based on real-life challenges in space robotics. Students are invited to design and create a Wheeled Legged Rover, encompassing both hardware and software development. Solutions from this challenge have the potential to be incorporated into ISRO’s future interplanetary robotics missions.
ISRO has initiated a robotics challenge for students with the goal of creating a uniform platform for anyone interested in exploring the field of space robotics.
ISRO is launching a Robotics Challenge for students, where winning teams will be selected based on a jury review and assessment of their sportsmanship. The top three teams will receive cash prizes of Rs 5 lakh, Rs 3 lakh, and Rs 2 lakh respectively, with two additional teams receiving a consolation prize of Rs 1 lakh each from ISRO. The ISRO Robotics Challenge Day is scheduled to take place in August 2024 at the URSC Bengaluru Campus.
