Workshops and Robotics - Techniche 2015

Techniche, the annual Techno-Management Festival of IIT Guwahati is going to witness its 17th edition from 3rd to 6th of September 2015. From its humble beginning in 1999, Techniche has grown to become one of the premier Techno-Management festivals of the nation. It has stayed true to its vision of motivating the youth of our nation to think out of the box, expand their horizons and reach the zenith of success in all techno-management spheres. It encompasses competitive events, lectures, workshops and exhibitions.


Techniche, in association with Robosapiens Technologies Pvt. Ltd. brings in the exposure to latest and best technology through its Workshops Module. With the best technical experts and interaction with students sharing common interest, these workshops will help delve deeper into the subject. Robosapiens was established in 2007, and brings knowledge and experience of eight years right at your table. The various workshops being organized include:

1. Autonomous Robotics
2. Bluetooth Robotics
3. Arduino
4. Android Apps development
5. Ethical Hacking
6. Quadcopter UAV
7. Cloud Computing
8. Automobile Mechanics and IC Engine
9. Web Development
10. STAAD Pro
11. Matlab and Image processing 12. Propeller Clock
13. Share Market and Investment
14. Webprenurship
15. Touch and Augmented Reality

The duration of each workshop is 12 hours (3 sessions of 4 hours each). Along with imparting theoretical knowledge, the workshops will be aimed at providing practical exposure as well and, about half the duration will be allocated for this purpose. These workshops act as a very good platform for enthusiasts who like to explore and learn. In short, they give a head start to the participants in their area of interest, by providing hands on experience and are a must go for avid learners. The appropriate kits required for hardware workshops will be provided to the participants (group or individual depending on the workshop).

Robotics has always been a fascinating field in the vast ocean of science and technology. In this modern age of science and technology we can see robots being employed in major working areas of humans and thereby simplifying the monotonous assembly line work for the humans. With the advent of robotics, there is a lot of high end research being carried out in this field and it’s a matter of no surprise that robotics has become a major study area in countries like USA and Germany.

Seeing these advancements in the field of robotics, the students of IIT Guwahati recognized the dire need of promoting and inculcating the culture of robotics to the vast student community in India by organizing several robotics competitions through Techniche.


Techniche organizes all India robotics competition called Escalade. Escalade has been organized successfully for the last three years. Escalade received an enormous and striking participation from the college community present all over India during the last two editions. With every new edition of Escalade the event gets bigger and better. Escalade primarily acts as a platform to promote the budding talent of robotics present in the student community of India. This event is held in two stages: i) Prelims ii) Mains


The prelims was conducted in all major cities across the nation on 12th July, 2015 where Students participated in a team of maximum 4 members. The top 6 teams from each center have been short listed and invited to IIT Guwahati to participate in the mains event of the competition to be held during Techniche'15.


Mains round of Escalade will be held at IIT Guwahati during its Annual Techno-Management festival Techniche where participants will compete with the finest Robotics enthusiasts from all over the nation. The problem statement of the Mains will be different from that of Prelims and would be declared shortly. Participants will also get a chance to witness and participate in various other events which will be conducted during these 3 days.
Prizes worth 80K are at stake and the winner also gets the tag of “NATIONAL ROBOTICS CHAMPION”.


Under the theme of “Urge to destroy is also a creative urge”, Techniche organizes a robot fight where fellow robots try to axe and grind their opponents to get the ultimate glory and honour. The objective is to make a wired/wireless, manually controlled bot that can immobilize the opponent’s bot in a one on one competition.

Nuke Off

This event is circled around the concept of Elite Disaster Management, Where a robot has to accomplish a task in aftermath conditions, which are fundamentally inaccessible to human. Ex: Advancing through huge piles of debris which is impossible through any magnitude of human effort. To construct a basic bomb diffusing robot which can handle simple tasks like cutting wires, flip on switches, lift light objects, etc. and a simple autonomous robot to help in the bomb transmit. 


This event is centered on the theme of destroying a meteor in the space, cruising towards earth which has a potential harm of destroying the human race forever. The basic motive of this event is to create an aircraft that lift up some weights, make successful flights, and should complete the task. The prize money for this event is 40K INR.

Economic Crosscut

This event is motivated by the idea of route optimization i.e., reaching the destination in the shortest possible route. The main objective of this event is to build an autonomous robot which can use IMAGE PROCESSING to traverse from start to finish at the least cost possible. Prizes worth 40K INR are at stake. Pentagon 


This event is based on the idea of protecting the human planet from alien invasion and UFO’s. The aim of this event is to construct a manual bot which can be controlled to play the game of air hockey and score fifty points to win the challenge against your opponent. The prize money for this event is 35K INR. For registrations for the above events, click here
