Asia's Largest Techno-Management Fest
27th - 29th January, 2017
People who are frenzied enough to think they can change the world are the ones who actually do. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic and never ceases to astound us. There are no dreams too large, no innovation unimaginable and no frontiers beyond technological reach. Science may set limits to knowledge but can't set limits to imagination. This has been the impulsion behind the awe-inspiring events of Kshitij since its inception to provide bounteous opportunities to reinforce the scientific discernment among the student fraternity and have provided a congruous platform to help them inculcate their expertise
Developed by Prof. Khalilur Rhaman and his research students of BRAC University Bangladesh, this project presents in detail an electrically operated mechanical robotic system based on an animated character of Pixar’s WALL-E. The replica’s boxy physical structure is built using plywood mounted on top of track wheel which is a complex mechanical combination of parts like toothed wheel, metallic frames and some soft PVC wood casted shapes driven by 2 independent single shaft geared DC motor. The main focus is developing a life-size meticulous Arduino-based entertainment robot entirely from custom-fabricated parts with distinctive features which can be controlled wirelessly.
Manav and Manav MINI are India's first 3D printed humanoid robot which were developed in the laboratory of A-SET Training and Research Institutes by Mr. Diwakar Vaish. Manav stands at 2 feet tall and has a weight of 2 kilograms, is equipped with onboard sound and visual processing so it can respond to commands. Having on board processor and various sensors, Manav can perform various activities like walking, dancing with the only requirement of human voice commands.
Manav Mini (The acrobatic version of Manav) has binocular vision processing as Manav.
WRITING HAND ROBOT is an arm with a pen, designed to draw characters commanded through electronic and electrical physical signals. MIND CONTROLLED AND BRAIN SENSING DEVICES AND ROBOTS is a game changing technology which will enable a lot of wearable technologies to work in sync with human mind even flying!
Football Playing Robot is a robot which is fully autonomous and plays football without any kind of human help. Shadow Robot: This robot mimics the movement of other physical arm of the user and also gives the force feedback hence enhancing control.
Xombie NX (NXT Version) operates itself through the evergreen technology used by bats that is ultrasonic sound. It helps Xombie to detect the obstacles. Gyro Boy (EV3 Balancing Robot) balances itself through a gyro sensor and combats falling forward and backward. Rero Balancing Robot is a minimalist design that makes for a tidy and fall safe design.
THOUGHT-CONTROLLED PROSTHESIS is a technique for implanting thought-controlled robotic arms and their electrodes directly to the bones and nerves of amputees and simultaneously control several joints and motions, as well as to receive direct neural feedback on their actions. Research is being undertaken by Prof. Max Jair Ortiz Catalan at Chalmers University, Sweden on biomedicine and artificial intelligence. Ordinary myoelectric prostheses work by placing electrodes over the skin to pick up nerve signals that would ordinarily be sent by the brain to the limb. An algorithm then translates these signals, and sends instructions to motors within the electronic limb. The technology helps amputees to control an artificial limb, in much the same way as their own biological hand or arm, via the person’s own nerves and remaining muscles. Imagine how thrilling it would be to play video games using this technology!
Jinn is taller, stronger, complex than other humanoids. Delivered with additional hardware and software, jinn can interact in reality. Java Programming has never been easier to use robotics and control sensors. Due to the 3D printing production itself, there are new options - there are no limits to imagination. Jinn can hear and speak, he can orient visually. He will get a personality and different day moods.
Kitty has been developed for schools and young developers aged 16 and older. Delivered as a complete system or as a kit, the compatibility list provides information on technical requirements. The great benefit of Kitty - It‘s never been easier to learn Java Programming with direct links to robotics and control sensors and to see the new knowledge immediately in function.
DevOps is a term for a group of concepts that, while not all new, have catalyzed into a movement and are rapidly spreading throughout the technical community. Because DevOps is a cultural shift and collaboration between development, operations and testing, there is no single DevOps tool, rather a set or “DevOps toolchain” consisting of multiple tools. Kshitij 2017 presents a workshop on DEVOPS by Oracle in an endeavor to help budding operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support. So brush up on your coding skills and enter the world of harmony between development and operations.
The universe has spoken and thanks to LIGO, we have experienced the Gravitational waves which are far too small to detect with ordinary human senses. To fascinate you all with the mysterious and enigmatic blend of astronomy.
The banking industry, integral to our commercial and personal lives, has always evolved with the times to embrace new challenges and consumer attitudes. Technology plays an obvious and increasingly important role in this evolution. Kshitij 2017 and DBS Bank present this engaging workshop on Digital Banking.
Do Analytics, Big Data and Machine Learning excite you? Do you have a data-driven approach to decision making? Do you want to know what gives the best organizations an edge over their competitors? For all that and much more, you are invited to participate in BizSense, the Big Data Workshop, conducted by American Express. American Express swears by Big Data analytics and the workshop will give you a sneak peek into how successful organizations leverage data and cutting-edge analytics to make important business decisions. The workshop will consist of two parts – in the first half, you will get yourself familiarized with different analytical techniques (via interesting business use-cases); in the second, you will get an opportunity to use the knowledge you have gained to compete with your peers in an online simulation game. So, learn and experience analytics and win exciting prizes in the process! Registrations open till Jan 24 th !
Over this era, we have always looked for products that are cost effective and have reduced power consumption. Cypress semiconductors’ microcontrollers combined with Bluetooth Smart provide wireless access to low power applications through their smartphones or tablets. Kshitij 2017 and Cypress Semiconductors presents a vision to the working of Cypress’s finest microcontrollers in their hands on workshop
The domain of automobile engineering has taken the world by storm today with its new cutting-edge technologies and amazing designs. To get a hands-on experience in its manufacturing processes, be there at Kshitij 2017 and attend this simulation workshop by Toyota India.
