Line Follower Racing (Robo Speedster): Robots in antiquity and through the Middle Ages were used primarily for entertainment. However, the 20th century featured a boom in the development of industrial robots. Through the rest of the century, robots changed the structure of society and allowed for safer conditions for labor. In addition, the implementation of advanced robotics in the military and NASA has changed the landscape of national defense and space exploration.
Industry has benefited drastically from the expanse of a robotic work force. Automated machines have taken over the duties of dangerous and mundane jobs from humans, allowing greater productivity. Because robots never tire, extra shifts have been added to factories. Farmers have taken advantage of new technology with automated harvesters, the waste disposal industry has implemented robots in some of its dirtier jobs, and the medical industry benefits from advancements in assisted surgical robotics. The idea of a factory with no human workers has come to fruition.
So to keep up with these advancements in robotics, aLine Follower Racing (Robo Speedster)contest is being arranged in this event where the robots will do the racing on a track. Through this contest, the students and robot enthusiastic persons in our country will be able to verify their skills in the field of robotics. This contest will require not only theoretical, but also practical knowledge and hence it will help the participants to apply their technological know-hows in our day to day life.
