We are an organization at IIT Delhi that provides students with the resources to develop robots.
Robotics is the branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, structural disposition, manufacture and application of robots.
The concept and creation of autonomously operating machines dates back a long time, but credible research into the functionality and potential uses of robots did not grow substantially until the 20th century. And today, robotics is a rapidly growing field, as we continue to research, design and build new robots that serve various practical purposes including domestic, commercial and military.
Having said that, the Robotics Club of IIT Delhi strives to stimulate interest in robotics among the students of the institute. Besides making a serious endeavour to spread knowledge on Robotics and its diverse applications, it also stands by the subtle acronym of TEAM - 'Together Everyone Achieves More'. It is this exemplary virtue that has bound the club and helped it to grow to its present potential. It was initiated way back in 2002 under the tutelage of Prof. S.K.Saha (Department of Mechanical Engineering), with the solitary objective of participating in the ROBOCON competition. But over the years it has diversified.
We firmly believe in working in a planned, organized and disciplined manner that helps us in risk free management. The proceedings of the clubs are all pre-planned and run smoothly according to the constitution. Well defined goals, an organized and disciplined work structure and motivated members are the features of the club, to mention a few, that have helped the club to grow to a level where we see it now.
The club today is an active platform for students to display and develop their practical machine building skills and knowledge.
Any company interested to adopt any of the Robotics devices, we would be more than happy to adopt or transfer the technology.
The Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) is an Asian Oceanian College robot competition, founded in 2002 by Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union. In the 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. The event is broadcast in many countries through ABU member broadcasters.
The mission of the ABU Robocon 2019 Ulaanbaatar is to mimic a relay messenger system called Urtuu. Urtuu was first innovated by nomadic Mongolians. They had been using the Urtuu system as a messenger for rest (feeding, replacing a horse, etc.,), and in some cases, relay to another messenger. By using the Urtuu system, a messenger was able to travel in distance of 400 kilometres per day. The Urtuu system was an important invention that opened new doors to present system of exchanging and sharing knowledge and information.
IIT Delhi in Robocon
The main objective here is to build robots to participate in the ROBOCON INDIA competition and subsequently qualify for the international level. IIT Delhi has an exemplary track record in this competition. We won it in the year 2007 and represented INDIA in the International ROBOCON Competition. Over the years, our robots, both manual and automatic, have been highly appreciated at the competition. The Indian leg of the competition is held in the month of March every year.

The Robotics Club is trying to improve the participation of IIT Delhi in Robotics competitions in technical festivals around the country organized round the year. Itsx achieving this by encouraging and assisting students to participate in such events. It has members who, apart from having good experience in Robotics, have participated in different technical fests besides Robocon, and we believe this could be of great help to students interested in the same. Based on the preliminary report, mentors would be allotted to the teams interested in participating in the technical fests. Every year, numerous teams participate in technical festivals like TechFest (IIT Bombay), Kshitij (IIT Kharagpur), Shaastra (IIT Madras), APOGEE (BITS Pilani), Tryst (IIT Delhi) etc.
