KURUKSHETRA : Catching the phrase “Make in India” the
National Institute of Technology here showcased a vast
stock of talents from March 12 to 15 in which an array of exhibits
The 4-day technical festival, TechSpardha, presented a host of
events, exhibitions, lectures and presentations – a live show of technical
skills – at the NIT Library.
According to a press note issued by the NIT BrahMos put up a
striking exhibition of their latest cruise missile.
Boasting an error probability of about 3 meters and a
range of nearly 300 km BrahMos is a force to reckon
with. It can be operated in all environments, namely
land air and under water.
Another eye catching exhibition was put up by A-SET. The company
develops and manufactures robots with minimal designs
and realistic features. MANAV-the humanoid was the star
of the show. It’s a 3-D printed robot that works on a
learning algorithm. Its claim to fame is its near human
intelligence. It can dance, interact, take commands and
most importantly, it learns. The brain sensing robot was
an eye catching display. The writing hand robot, the
shape changing robot and the football playing robot were
the other highlights.
Improving the efficiency, the Computer Numeric Controller came to
the fore. It accepted simple JPG images as input and
could produce identical copies with an accuracy of 100%.
The JPG file further converted to a .tap file. This
gadget could detect even the slightest of taps.
Amity University came up with an indigenous and creative
idea, christened TRIKE. It was built for the physically
challenged. It was easier to handle, lighter to drive
and more stable at off road conditions. This was a
completely mechanical project in which the power was
transmitted directly to the front wheel using cyclic
chains and cassette gears.
The range of exhibits were vast and versatile. AVANTEC ENGINEERING
CONSOTIUM provided various test systems for concrete
structures, soil, rock and geo technology. The Human
Glove presented a humane idea to help people who have
trouble speaking. It detected hand gestures and
presented the expressions on an LCD display. Picking up
the concept of Best out of Waste, the Scrap Copter
innovated the traditional Quad Copter.
Labs showed out of the box solutions using embedded
designs, robotics and mechatronics. Bridging the gap
between concept and reality the exhibition provideed on
hand solutions to the new world problems.
