ROVER is a space exploration vehicle designed to witness the future of space exploration. These are used to traverse unexpected and unfamiliar terrains along with analyzing the possibility of life existence on different planets. Mars Society is a worldwide volunteer-driven space-advocacy non-profit organization dedicated for promoting the human exploration and settlement of the planet Mars. IRC (Indian Rover Challenge) is the only robotics and space exploration based competition in Asia organized by Mars Society to ignite and encourage the spirit of innovation amongst young minds.
Team DRISHTI has been working on the Rover since last three years and participating in IRC since last two years. We secured 4th rank in IRC 2018, 8th rank in IRC 2019 and 9th rank in IRC 2020.
Robocon ( Asia Pacific robotic contest) is organised by the Asia Pacific broadcasting union (ABU). A collection of over 20 countries of Asia pacific region participate in the contest. Each year the competition has a different problem statement on the basis of hosting country's culture or global problems. The competition is held in 2 stages - the national stage which decides the team/college that would be representing the country in international competition (final stage) held in last week of August every year.
Team Drishti representing NIT, Surat has been participating in this competition since 2006 and has been setting a higher benchmark for itself, each year in the competition. In Robocon 2018 team Drishti ranked 12th in national stage among 108 teams nationwide.
AI is the study of how to train the computers so that computers can do things which at present human can do better and Machine learning is to learn from data on certain task to maximize the performance of machine on this task. We all fascinate over Iron Man’s J.A.R.V.I.S. (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System) or we wonder at how Siri works. These are nothing but the best examples of Intelligent systems which make use of algorithms of machine learning and natural language processing and computer vision. Since 2016 Team Drishti has been working on projects which mark steps towards getting to know the amazing world of A.I. and computer vision which include hand written digit recognition, stock price prediction, home automation, Music tagging, Maze solver, Automated check-in System,MRI segmentation, A.I. image colorization, cosmic rays classification, Plant Leaf Analyzer Network , Gesture Interpreter for Specially Abled.
When we thought of any technical club, there is a perception that the tech club only deals with robotics and mechanical machines. Still, we in DRISHTI have done numerous projects that explore the current happenings in civil engineering.
On one hand, Projects like earthquake-proof building, green building, and sustainable society planning are helpful and need of the hour for the society, whereas, on the other hand, Projects like bridge designing, tensegrity and geodesic dome, diagrid and truss structures technically explores the modern era of civil engineering. We continuously work on improvement of our projects.
We also look after the problems of society and how we can provide a better solution to overcome that problem.
Human pictured about the flying of birds and they started thinking about the thought to fly like them. It was 1903 when wright brothers did their first Flight Test and then aerodynamics became the hot chattered topic. From a car on the road to electricity through windmill everything involves the principles of aerodynamics.
Thus, to stimulate the development in the field of Aerodynamics, here in Drishti we study the aerodynamics and make it applicable in various aspects. We work on development of Different RC planes depending on their applications. We basically design, analyse and manufacture the RC planes. Since the developed technology of the quadcopter is expensive, we are developing our own Flight controller for the Quadcopter which can be further developed for autonomous RC Plane. We have also participated in Boeing Aeromodelling Competition. Considering that Aerodynamics is not only limited to Sky, we also work to develop our own Solid Propellent Rockets.
