Kurukshetra Robotics Event

Kurukshetra Robotics Event

Kurukshetra, the annual technical festival of the College of Engineering, Guindy, Anna University, Chennai takes a pan-India avatar with this edition of XCEED – a pre-Kurukshetra Robotics event.

This year, there’s excitement in store for the quizzers out there as well.

XCEED was started right from the maiden year with the view of bringing Kurukshetra very close to the participant’s own city and to provide the local crowd a flavour of what Kurukshetra is all about.

Previous editions saw teams from across the country fight their opponents on the football pitch, showcase their robot’s intelligence by getting it to solve a line maze, and many other such challenges.

This year, XCEED is to kick start in Bangalore on December 11. Among the events lined up for XCEED are ‘Klonstructor’ and ‘Line Tracer’.

In Klonstructor the objective is to bring down an old building (a structure made of cubes) and take the debris for recycling to a dumping area. Line Tracer puts the participants’ skills to build an autonomous line follower robot that can complete a given track in the least possible time.

The qualifying teams from the regional rounds of XCEED then get to compete at the National finals to be held in January (20th to 23rd) at the College of Engineering, Guindy. Last year, the Bangalore zone finalists went on to win the Nationals.

Regional round

The regional round of the Business Quiz will also be held along with XCEED. The finals will take place in January at the College of Engineering, Guindy, Anna University.
