What is ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC?
Robotics Challenge-URSC 2024 is organized by ISRO. To provide the opportunity for the students in the area of space robotics, “ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC 2024 (IRoC-U 2024)” is organised with a tagline of “Let’s build a space robot”. The challenge consists of an engineering project where the Institutional teams build robots to compete in an extra-terrestrial-inspired arena, performing tasks based on the real-life challenges faced by space robotics. Last Date of Contest is 5th December 2023.
Objectives of the ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC
** To provide a standardised platform for exploring the area of space robotics
** To develop a deeper understanding of space robotics and its applications among the student community. It enhances their communication, collaboration, inquiry, problem solving and flexibility skills that will benefit them in their academic and professional lives.
** To co-develop (students and ISRO) future technologies needed in the area of space robotics.
Outcome for Student Community of ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC
** Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of mathematics, science and engineering
** Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs
** Communicate effectively
** Collaborate with a team, provide inclusive leadership, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
** Formulate and conduct appropriate experiments, analyse and interpret test and analytical data and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
Venue of ISRO Robotics Challenge-URSC
The final onsite competition to perform the required tasks is planned to be conducted in URSC Bengaluru Campus in the Month of August 2024. For information about the IRoC-U 2024 competition venue, please follow our updates on the website.
