We saw dreams , lived them and conquered them…. Won India’s First ever Gold Medal in ROBOGAMES 2010…with 2 silver and 1 bronze medals :)
Being the only Humanoid from India in RoboGames for the third year in a row … Acyut won 4 medals at RoboGames 2010¬† taking India to 5th position amongst 18 countries (http://robogames.net/2010.php), with 1 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze medal…
After another year of dedicated work… We have got AcYut to a new level…
Acyut now runs on a 600 Mhz on-board llinux-based microprocessor called gumstix using the latest omap 3503 processor (also used in the Apple iPhone 3GS), with a custom built image (a kind of an OS) running on it. It does bluetooth communicaton with the PlayStation 3 controller. Programming is done using a fully custom built multi-platform Graphical User Interface(GUI), which runs a full inverse kinematics engine together with realtime load calculations.
AcYut now uses motors with 106 Kg-cm torque (up by 80% from the previous motors) and moves using spline-based trajectory generation.
The first day of RoboGames 2010, the 3-day competetion, saw us testing out AcYut at the arena and passing the qualification crieterion. AcYut was ready and raring to go. The next day, AcYut’s dance demonstration in the custom-built humanoid category dazzled the judges. AcYut 3 was awarded the silver medal for it. AcYut 2 and 3 took part in the android sumo competetion, where they bagged the perfect finish, the gold and the silver medals. Acyut 3 also won a bronze medal in the middle-weight humanoid Kung-fu category. In all, AcYut won 4 medals for India, which got India the 5th place amongst 18 countries.
Our team consisting of Samay Kohli, Sushma Vallabhaneni, Akash Gupta, Ankit Kulshrestha, Rohan Maheshwari, Tushar Agrawal, and Vivek Notani, have worked very hard throughout the year for this competetion and are extremely happy with AcYut’s success.
More competetions and more posts coming soon….
Cheers to AcYut….
