In association with Robot Study Circle,COEP


Robotics is the branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensor feedback, and information processing. Virtual Robotics aims at tapping the infinite potential of the human mind to generate an idea, which when given a proper platform, can transform into a path-breaking discovery. We invite you to bring forth such original ideas and present them in a genuine and comprehensive way. These ideas deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans in hazardous environments or manufacturing processes. As mechanical techniques developed through the Industrial age, more practical applications are being proposed. This event requires you to make use of soft skills to represent ideas of any task-specific robot or technology of your choice and showcase your proficiency in the virtual world.


Soft Skills may include:

  1. 1. Simulation: It can be done in any design software capable of simulation. It may be industrial automation simulation or robotic simulation. Ex: Simulation of the robotic gripper.
  2. 2. ROS: One may write a program for a robot to complete a specific task using ROS.
  3. 3. Python: Python language may also be used for programming.
  4. 4. Animation: Animation can be done to elaborate on expected robotization or automation.
  5. 5. Matlab: Software such as Matlab can be used for mathematical modelling related to robotics/coding.
  6. 6. Image Processing: Vision sensor-based image processing for path planning, object avoidance, template matching, etc. can also be done.
  7. 7. Kinematic Motion Analysis can be done.
  8. Ex: Kinematic analysis of robotic arm.
  9. All the work you have done as part of projects in courses, your summer research work, the B.Tech./ B.E. Projects /B.Sc. the research program is welcome, subject to the condition that it has in some way contribute towards research in robotics and technology.

  8. 8. Your idea will be peer-reviewed and the shortlisted entries will qualify to the final round.
  9. 9. Entries will be evaluated solely on the basis of originality, applicability and feasibility of the idea.
  10. 10. Additional credits will be given for aesthetics, ergonomics, economics, etc.
  11. 11. Shortlisted teams will have to present their full ideas during MS’21.
  12. 12. The decision of the judges would be final and binding to all.
  13. 13. Rules may be changed without prior intimation. Participants are requested to check the official MindSpark’21 regularly for updates.


Q.Can one team register with different names?

Ans. A team, once registered, cannot register again, even with a different name.

Q. Who can participate?
