Project MANAS bag first prize in USA

MANIPAL: Project MANAS via Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) has secured the first place international, in the Annual Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition, held at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, recently. More than 35 plus groups from around the globe participated in the match, which concluded recently.

The project MANAS robotic was once named as 'Solo,' which was once designed indigenously via MIT students from quite a lot of engineering streams. Apart from bagging the grand prize, the crew also bagged the first prize in interoperability profile problem, 2d in design problem and sixth in cyber safety. Some of the opposite best establishments which participated in the match included, IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, DTU, US Military Academy and Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology).

Project MANAS beat best Indian groups like IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras and DTU and in addition international groups like Georgia Tech, University of Michigan and others. This feat was once achieved via the crew in best their 2d attempt in the competition. The grand prize is awarded to the crew with the easiest cumulative ranking from the sub-challenges. Manas positioned first in the IOP (Interoperability Profile) problem, 2d in design problem and sixth in cyber safety problem. This was once sufficient to internet 44 issues for clinching first prize.

The project is funded the Manipal Academy of Higher Education in conjunction with quite a lot of sponsors.

MANAS stands for higher intelligence and the crew is operating in opposition to their function of creating India's first driverless automobile.
