Metal for battle
The robot that competed in the 8 kg category  

It is a victorious return for the students of K J Somaiya’s Engineering College robotics team, Robocon. The 11-member squad finished runner-up in the Techkriti Robowars at IIT Kanpur last Friday. “This was our first outing at a robot battle in the 8 kg and 15 kg categories,” shared captain Atharv Chandane. With a preparation time of three weeks, the team managed to pull off four key battles to end up on the podium. “We had to learn how to defend with the robot. That control was challenging,” he said.
