NASA’s Space Apps Challenge - Runner’s Up, April 2015

Project Glove Above, where we added sensor functionalities to an astronaut gloves -

  • Finger movement was used to simulate an invisible piano
  • Visual aid was included to display important messages when communication between the astronauts is shot
Troika – IEEE, DTU: Brainwave - 1st (Winners), March 2015

Created an LED based electronic sand clock without any microcontroller, the highlight was the use of a toffee box instead of an accelerometer or tilt sensor, reducing its cost considerably

Troika – IEEE, DTU:  Stark Reality - 2nd Position, March 2015

Problem statement based event, built a high speed line following robot with PID control, capable of detecting the maze lasers and also deactivating them by focusing its own laser onto the maze detectors
