DD to take part in global robotics contest

Vinod Behl

Public broadcaster Doordarshan will represent India at the Robocon 2002, the first Robotics Competition for Asia Pacific Region to be organized by Asian Broadcasting Union (ABU) in Japan towards August end.

The idea behind this unique global contest is to popularise science through robotics games. The College and Polytechnic level-engineering students will construct their own robots and play on a given theme against rival teams. The team from each participant country will consist of three students. Doordarshan in collaboration with technical institutes is in the process of forming various teams with a view to organise domestic contests to prepare for the global competition. These contests will be filmed and each stage of robot construction is to be documented by Doordarshan.

Like Doordarshan, the national broadcasters from other countries will also document robot construction through films. Finally, these films will be compiled to produce a programme for telecast on national television networks of ABU member countries including Doordarshan.
