Come October and BITS-Pilani,Hyderabad Campus will be all set to fulfil your dream,well,in a way.On the line of the ecstatic Moto GP competition,we are conducting The Mini GP competition.The competition will have its participants (or racers) drive self-designed remote controlled cars through deliciously twisty race tracks to win the final cup! Seems simple?Well, brace yourselves for some rock solid competition. Forget not, the more innovative and inventive your design is, the closer you are to the Mini GP cup.Fasten your seatbelts and let the adrenaline pump up!

Problem Statement

The participants are expected to race their remote control based IC engine cars through tracks whose complexity is bound to increase level after level.The teams completing the laps in the best possible time will qualify for a grand final race.The design skills and application of real-world driving skills to the miniature cars are put to test.

Competition Rules

  • The track will have check points at regular intervals.
  • In case a machine tumbles, or halts, or goes off the arena at any point on the track, only one of the participants is allowed to lift it up and place it at the nearest checkpoint behind that point. (Previous two rules are for non-racing rounds. The rules for racing round will be told on the spot)
  • Until and unless there is a need to touch the vehicle as stated above, they have to be fully remot3e controlled throughout the rave.
  • Every time the machine requires lifting by the team member, a time-penalty will be imposed.
  • Any vehicle is not allowed to leave any disintegrated part on the race track amidst of the race. In case this happens, the team will be disqualified.

Smart City Innovation Challenge

About Smart Cities

"Smart city" has emerged as a buzzword in India ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi outlined his vision for creating a hundred Smart cities. And, aside from the hype around the term "Smart cities" it does raise some pertinent questions such as what does it really mean to be a "smart city?" and why should Indians care about the smartness of their city? Indian cities are unique in that they confront the challenges of not only the 20th and 21st centuries but also some remnants from the 19th century. While cities like Bengaluru are participants in global innovation and increasingly compete with Silicon Valley to further enhance innovation, they also need to tackle important issues such as providing basic sanitation, public transport, clean water and effective waste management. So, the traditional approach of managing and maintaining our cities must change - both in mindset and in the way we administer them.

Call for City Innovations

There is tremendous potential in India to build an effective ecosystem to enable our burgeoning urban areas to become smart by using digital technology. This in turn will create employment opportunities and contribute to economic growth through innovation. Our cities are fast becoming the defining units of human habitation. How smartly we build, manage and operate our cities will be the single biggest determinant of our people's future. We owe it to our future generations to make our cities smart through the use of technology.
We request all the Public and Private bodies to join hands and show their mettle by coming up with smart, sustainable and long-term solutions. Applicants will be invited to present and showcase their technology during the National Techno-Management Fest of BITS Pilani Hyderabad Campus, ATMOS 2015(October 8-12, 2015). "There is no fee to submit your innovation".
