Team Pratyunmis to represent BIT, Mesra in ABU ROBOCON, Indonesia, 2015

Team Pratyunmis is a team of about 20 students from various engineering disciplines who are going to represent Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra in ABU ROBOCON, Indonesia, 2015 (http://www.roboconindia.com/) conducted by Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union.

The Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) is an Asian Oceania College robotics competition, founded in 2002 by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. In this competition, robots compete to complete a task within a set period of time. The contest aims to create friendship among young people with similar interests who will lead their countries in the 21st century, as well as help advance engineering and broadcasting technologies in the region.

Each year the competition has a different theme, but in general, two or more robots are to be used to complete the given tasks. The robots can be manual, autonomous or semi-autonomous depending as per the problem statement launched. To build the robots, contestants, who are restricted to be undergraduate students, must possess rich knowledge in programming, mechanical design and electronic.

This is the third time we are participating in ABU ROBOCON after a successful participation in ABU ROBOCON 2013 and 2014. Every year we form a team of about 20 students to work together as a team towards the given problem statement, which is released in the month of August. The team comprises of students from 2 batches who are selected on the basis of a rigorous screening session. The team is divided into various sub teams where 2 mentors from 4th year guide 4-5 students from 2nd and 3rd year. Once the testing phase of all the possible options is complete, students from first year are taken as interns during the final manufacturing, to instill in them the best of what we have gained through our own process.

The problem statement for this year’s event is ROBOMINTON (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0XEc4N8yvE) . The event theme has posed us challenges like never before in both mechanical and circuital fields. With a committed work force and updated technological perspective, we have started working on it and have been very successful so far. We have been putting in immense efforts, day-in-day-out and have finalized the design. The final manufacturing is in process.

In these two years of the team has progressed, from being the third best rookie team of Robocon 2013 to scoring the 27th rank in Robocon 2014. The team wishes to take the scenario ahead and make a mark in the international arena.

Good going for BITOSA Students Endowment Fund..

We do have four Rs. 50000/- deposits and one 60000/- and one 50000/- assured …..Not bad for 2 weeks old program, but not so good too for all those who wish to contribute something for their Alumnus fund… May be many would not have seen it.

Please remember every year the audited balance sheet would be posted on web:www.bitosa.org

After discussions with various BIT ans… a new IDEA !!!
Every batch has own agenda for assisting students and have fund deposited with direction to BITOSA officials to utilise it as per their agenda. Batch funds would be be posted in separate ledger entries…

We the 1965 batch are having a reunion on 26, 27 and 28th December’2014 and we are planning to collect Rs. 10 lac. This will be deposited in FD and interest will be used ever year for the purpose which will be firmed up in our meet.

Do come forward in Christmas, as this is supposed to be giving week…

Our GOAL ???
Rs. 6 crore to be deposited in FD for Rs. 60 lac per annum assistance to students, as per your wish and directions…

Auditor’s Report as at 31st March 2014

Posted in In Spotlight, News & Views | 1 Comment

ALUMNI/BITOSA HOUSE

We, at Silver Jubilee Celebration in 1980-81, conceptualised ALUMNI HOUSE within the campus of Birla Institute of Technology, our ALMA MATER. It is to be called BITOSA House.

A Team lead by Dr. C.B. Mishra took initiative and fund was raised. BITians pledged money. We had Rs. 11.0 lacs approximately with us on account of BITOSA House.

Due to unavoidable circumstances in 1983 and onwards the project could not take off.

We, at Golden Jubilee Celebration Co ordination Committee meeting decided to initiate once again to build BITOSA/ALUMNI HOUSE, basically to strengthen the ties, friendship and communication amongst former students, current students, faculty and friends of the institution.

The Alumni House/ BITOSA House will be a foot  print of current civilisation completely self sufficient, stand-alone unit, a short walk from the main building.

Our then Chief Patron, Dr. H.C. Pande, VC Emeritus and our then Patron., Late Dr. S.K. Mukherjee Vice-chancellor took keen interest and BIT had allotted us approx 5 Acres of land at back of Hostel No-2 and near Saraswati Temple (Partially built).  

We, in consultation with Dr. Manjari Chakravorty, Dept. of Architecture evaluated different drawings as visualised by the students of the Dept. of Architect.

We, after detail evaluation and analysis approved plan as suggested by visiting faculty Mr. Sandeep Jha, from Axis Ranchi, an IIPA, Delhi product and same was displayed at proposed site. It was not approved.

Our, then Chief Patron, Dr. H. C. Pande approved layout and building plan so prepared by the Dept. of Architecture, BIT, Mesra.  We performed Shilanayas and also Bhoomi Poojan in 2005 and 2006 at allotted site. Prof P.P.Singh was in charge and Shri Kedar Nath Lal Das under guidance of then President Shri Sushil Lohia coordinated all functions.

We did started construction of boundary wall in 2006.  The Forest Department came into and construction work was stopped. The Forest Dept. objection was imaginary since there had not been any communication or visit in record between 2006 to 2012 by the  said department.

The BITOSA HOUSE will content:

  1. Individual suite.
  2. Entrance Lobby, Heritage Lounge
  3. Reception cum General Office
  4. Library/Reading Hall, Archives and Communication Room (Internet etc.)
  5. Hall for Indoor Games, Card Room. TV Room, Pool Table etc.

  8. Association Office and attached Conference Hall. (50 Persons)
  9. Audio –visual/Seminar Hall with a capacity of 100 Persons. Multi Media/ Acoustics.

Our then President Late K. K. Sinha arranged substantiate contribution from the batches 1955-1968 or so.  It was approve Rs. 6.0 lacs.

The present EC proposed alternate sites at IGH, next to Girl’s Hostel and near BIOTECH Building etc.  All alternate sites were not approved by BIT.The present EC met then Patron Dr. P. K. Barhai,VC with a request to grant permission to build BITOSA House at earlier allotted site i.e. behind Hostel No. 2.

Then VC Dr. P. K. Barhai in consultation with Chairman, BOG, BIT (Shri C. K. Birla) and Mr. Jajodia, Treasure, Hindustan Charity Trust gave consent to construct BITOSA House at earlier allotted site i.e. behind Hostel No. 2 subjected to approval from Dept. Of Forest, GOJ if need be.  We had engaged local contractor and boundary wall had been erected.

The building will be based on Bio- Climatic Architectural Principles. The Sun and Wind will be utilised to save energy.

The Project will be completed in 2014-15 at estimated cost approx. Rs. 3.15 crores.

We have built boundary wall at site 344 x 300 ft x 6 ft  height in December 2013 / January 2014. The Core Team will be there to execute said Project.

We can contribute in three ways to build BITOSA HOUSE through Account of BITOSA.

  1. Pay be cheque/draft/Net Banking.
  2. Pay by Credit Card on line.
  3. Transfer of stock or share or Mutual Fund.

There will be provision to avail income tax rebate and same will be notified in detail.
