Starting off with the venue, you won’t believe if I said this Northshore College building is situated in Colombo 15/Mattakkuliya. It is enormous inside and out. Started nearly 3 years back,  4th batch of students are now undergoing their studies where the univeristiy offers IT and Management Degrees only at the moment.

The name ‘ROBOCOM’ itself gives an idea what this event is about. A Robotics Competition organized by the Northshore College ‘Robotics Society‘ to bring out the hidden talents among the Mechanical Engineering Students and to get an idea about starting a Robotics Degree at the College.

“I hope this competition is the first step of a long way. You will not win instantly, but you will definitely win” – Professor Niranjan Gunawardhana, Director of Northshore College.

10 teams were supposed to battle, however only 7 turned up.  Team Arrow, Team Omega, Team MH370, Team 1st Place, Team Robosonic, Team Circuit Breakers and Team Titan were the present teams at the venue.

Apparently the individual who won the open category Robotics Challenge at UoM last year is one of the Lecturers at Northshore College and he’s been guiding the students for this competition along with some other lecturers as well.

Each team got 3 trials to pick the object and follow the trail. Final results were announced after calculating based on a formula and by judging the design. 3rd place went to Team 1st Place, 2nd place to Team #MH370 and Team Arrow were able to bag the 1st position without any hesitation.

At the Northshore College premises “ROBOCOM 2014”, the first ever Robotics Competition for the college is to be held on the 24th of April 2014 from 10 am onwards.

Realizing the potential that Robotics possessed,  “The Northshore College Robotics Society” with the ultimate goal of instilling the very essence of Robotics in Northshore College, was created. In order to expose students to the robotics era of technology,  “ROBOCOM 2014” has been organized , the first ever Robotics competition at Northshore. ROBOCOM is a challenge that which tests participant groups on some of the basic principles of Robotics. Essentially the Bot needs to be able to place/pick an object and follow a line. With the announcement of ROBOCOM, almost all Robotics Enthusiasts or “ROBOMANIACS” within the Software, Electrical and Electronics respects of Northshore have collaborated and formed powerful teams, each comprised of no more than five individual. Almost all the teams have completed the construction of the Bot.

To make the competition a true race to the finish line, cash prizes will be offered to the First, Second and Third teams of the competition. DMS (PVT) Ltd. are the prize sponsors for the competition with Digit being the media partner.

All who are interested in Robotics are cordially invitedo to joins as Northshore puts first steps into the world of Robotics.
