THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Mars Rover, the robotic space mission launched by Nasa in 2011 to explore Mars, had several replicas made at Barton Hill Engineering College here on Sunday. Around 270 engineering students from 15 colleges across the city took part in CURIOSITY – a workshop on Unmanned Ground Vehicles and a zonal round competition on robotics.  The third year mechanical engineering students at Barton Hill arranged a four-segment coaching to the participants to create and animate their Mars Rover model. “We are all first year students and obviously some technical terms sound really bizarre for us. But the seniors here are giving training to make our robot work,” said Rejitha, an EC engineering student at LBS College.    The teams that came up with the most efficient vehicles made it to the finals. They were asked to assemble the models within 40 minutes and animate it with the specifications attributed to it. The winning team was selected to participate in ROBONATION, the national final round, to be held at IIT Delhi. The team consisting of Sonu Prasanth and Suraj M S of ACE college of Engineering, Gautham Sudhakar and Yadu Krishna S K of SCTCE and Sreehari C M of Kerala University emerged winners. – Courtesy
