Students from the Centre For Innovation (CFI) at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) have created an Asia and India records for operating the "largest number of Robots cleaning an area." Representatives from the Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records adjudicated the event, which took place last evening at theStudents Activities Centre (SAC) in the IIT-M campus. A provisional certificate was awarded after the completion of the event. The final certification would follow after validation and assessment of the record evidences submitted by the Investigation Team of Asia Book of Records and the India Book of Records, a release from IIT-M said today. As many as 270 students belonging to several disciplines fabricated a total of 45 robots at the CFI Workshop in IIT-M. Each robot consisted of a high RPM motor at its centre, with two rotating scrub pads that directed the dust into the Central Suction Mechanism, which was collected by a filter in the vacuum tunnel. They were controlled over Bluetooth from an App based on Android platform. The robots cleaned an area of 750 sqft simultaneously non-stop for more than 15 minutes to create a new record. No manual intervention was allowed inside the cleaning area after the start of the exercise. Speaking about the initiative, Prof B Ravindran, Faculty-in-Charge, CFI, said, "Robotics is one of the oldest co-curricular activity "at IIT-M. ''In the past, IIT-M teams have successfully participated in various global competitions'', he said. This record is the latest in the list of achievements of the robotics groups at the Centre for Innovation, he added. UNI GV 1833
