e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC) is a unique annual competition for undergraduate students in Engineering/ Science/ Polytechnic colleges. The competition has evolved over the years to include more number of teams by introducing different Tracks in the competition. Currently in its fifth edition, eYRC-2016 introduces three Tracks – all Tracks are conducted in parallel and Finals for all Tracks are planned to be held at IIT Bombay in March 2017. Each Track may contain one or more Themes – problem statements abstracted into a game rulebook. Details will be disclosed after the selection test.
Students participate as a team of four– with each team member taking the test simultaneously. A team’s selection test score is used to determine eligibility of the team to participate in the competition. A Team’s selection test score along with other factors such as participation of team member/s in the past competitions may be used to assign Tracks and Themes to the team. e-Yantra holds complete discretion in the selection and Track/Theme assignment processes.
The winners of this competition are eligible for a summer internship at IITB through the e-Yantra Summer Internship Program (eYSIP).
The e-Yantra Robotics Competition uses a Project-Based Learning (PBL) approach to impart (i) knowledge on concepts in Embedded systems and Robotics (ii) real-world problem solving skills and (iii) hands-on learning. The competition is conducted completely online over a period of 4-5 months. During this period Teams work on Tasks – each Task being a step in the learning/problem-solving process. Based on the performance in the Tasks, teams are selected for further stages of the competition/Finals of the competition. Finals of the competition will be held at IIT Bombay in March 2017.
Through this competition, students are not only learning and exploring technologies but also developing skills to analyze a problem, finding alternate solutions and presenting the most appropriate solution to the problem - skills essential in any entrepreneurial endeavour.
