IIT Madras: Announcing CFI Teams that'll take part in Internati
Team Raftar is the only Indian team to qualify for Formula Student Germany 2018, in which Students build a single seat formula race car with which they compete against teams from all over the world. It is among the sixty combustion teams to successfully register out of 173 teams from all over the world.
Team Abhiyaan is working with a mission to create efficient and safe transportation solutions and are trying to build a ground vehicle which is capable of navigating autonomously via GPS way-points. Last year, Team Abhiyaan’s Autonomous vehicle qualified for the ‘Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition’ (IGVC-2017), an annual international robotics competition, held at Oakland University, Michigan, USA. It was one among the two teams from India which qualified for the competition.
Team Anveshak was set up with a vision to inspire students to work on challenging problems in space exploratory robotics. Last year, Team Anveshak’s Mars Rover qualified for the finals of the University Rover Challenge and was demonstrated at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah Desert, U.S. With some minor modifications to the existing design, the rover can be used in defence for autonomous surveillance and reconnaissance missions in areas where human intervention is risky.
The Centre For Innovation (CFI), a 24x7 ‘student lab’, was established in 2008 with funds donated by the batch of 1981. It was set up with a vision to encourage engineers to apply knowledge from their academic pursuits to ‘innovate’ and propose solutions to real-world problems. CFI serves as a creative hub - encouraging peer learning and providing a platform for ideas to manifest with the support of resources, workspace and mentoring.
