The International Robofest-2019 organized by Lawrence Technological University Michigan (LTU) on May 16-18, 2019, saw 3 students from Hyderabad securing second and third positions across 3 distinct categories for the first time in twenty years. Out of 250 teams from 16 different countries, they managed to win even though this was only the second time that India has participated in the two-decade-old competition.

SuhasDevullapalli (class 12) from DAV Public School Kukatpally, Aarnav Devulapalli (class 10) from Sentia School, Miyapur and Tarun Mukesh (class 6) from Manthan International School, represented India in Michigan. They were trained by a private firm called Tix robotics. “We have been working for this day for the past 10 years. It is a proud moment. For the past several months they worked extensively and some days they even put in 18-20 hours,” said Prasanna Devullapalli, director of Tix Robotics.

They came 3rd in a competition called “Bottle Sumo” where a robot already designed by them had to push off the rival robot off the table. They bagged the 2nd place in two other categories – “Unknown Mission Challenge” where they had to design a robot within 2 hours to do particular tasks and “Binary Block” where a predesigned robot was given a number and code to be turned into binary language.
