Indore, 27th April 2023: NMIMS STME Indore students have once again demonstrated their excellence by winning at the prestigious IIT Kanpur Techkriti Fest 2023. Multiple teams from NMIMS STME Indore made it to the final round and showcased their innovative ideas and exceptional skills in various competitions.
Team Technophiles secured the 6th position with their innovative idea about Sea Exploration. They estimated that 90% of the ocean remains undiscovered, and the exploration of these areas often requires expensive equipment. However, the team managed to significantly reduce the cost of traditional exploration machines by 87% through the use of buoyancy control via the chemical reaction of Sodium Azide and Potassium Nitrate.
Team TechGuys secured the 4th position in the IACR Competition with their robot designed for Line Following. The robot can detect dead ends and reverse course without turning, ensuring that it stays on course and makes few errors.
In addition, Team Robotech impressed the judges with their innovative fighting robot that had a 12-inch cutter made from a high-strength steel alloy and was powered by an ESP8266 module for wireless communication.
These victories reflect the institute’s commitment to nurturing talent and providing students with opportunities to participate in such events. NMIMS STME Indore offers a wide range of programs in robotics, automation, artificial intelligence, and other emerging fields, ensuring that students have access to the latest technologies and tools.
