Team Mechatronics cheered with the young innovators from NUST College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering as their robots took the playing fields at the annual Head Start Robotics Competition (HSRC).This competition was held at Head Start School. The competition encourages students, on both school and university level, to come up with their innovative ideas and exemplary logic. The competition develops a healthy interaction between school and university students which ensures a positive exchange of the knowledge of Robotics. History repeated itself this year too on 7th April, 2018 when students of Mechatronics Engineering department CEME, NUST excelled in the HSRC'18 and bagged the trophies of all the major categories. The students by making the most standout bots in both modular and indigenous category and habitually, became a source of pride for the department. The teamwork, passion and hard work exhibited by our students are not just remarkable, but also exhibit professionalism.
The three major categories of the event were all conquered by our students. They are the following:
1) Line tracking modular.
2) Line tracking indigenous.
3) Line tracking logic based
A brief outlook on the teams is given as follows:
1) Line tracking Indigenous:
NUST Students of 6th semester Mechatronics Engineering Department CEME, Team “Terminator” won this competition. They stood out in this category by completing the challenging arena in just 12 seconds.
