Agnel Robocon Team is a part of the Agnel Robotics Club (ARC) which is the robotics club of F.C.R.I.T. Vashi. The team comprises of 25 Ingenious Engineers from different departments and batches brimming with technical knowledge, practical approach and management skills.
The team's first appearance in ABU-ROBOCON was in the year 2013. Although this was our first step, the team's design and approach were highly appreciated.
Our Journey through the Years:
The team's growth and extensive hard work is visible through our ranks every year as we were amongst :-
Top 40 in 2014
Top 30 in 2015
Top 15 in 2016
These ranks were bagged in a competition with teams from throughout the country.
What is ROBOCON?
ROBOCON is organised by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Unit (ABU). It was started in 2002 and is presently the largest robotics competition in the world.
It has gained the status of biggest robotics competition with 1500+ teams participating worldwide. Every year the organisation comes up with a new problem statement. The variation and the standard of problem statement gives ample opportunity to learn and implement various technical skills and also brushes up the managerial capabilities.
The team winning the national leg of the competition represents the country in the international stage. For 2018, the international level of the competition will take place in NINH BINH, VIETNAM.
Every year, the national leg of the competition takes place at MIT, Pune in the first week of March.
THEME For ROBOCON 2018:
Every year the host country (Vietnam for 2018) puts forward a theme which consists of challenging tasks to be performed by the participating robots.
The theme revolves around the concept of 'play' which is the basic philosophy behind Robocon.
The theme for 2018 is "Shuttlecock throwing" where two teams compete with each other to score points by throwing shuttlecocks through rings on poles on various heights and from different distances. The scoring is done on various parameters specified in the rule book.
A match will be contested between two teams, Red and Blue, lasting for 3 minutes. The score at the end of 3 minutes will be compared and the winner will be declared.

As per the budget, the financial requirement of the team is much more than what it can fetch by mere help from the institution & personal contributions. It therefore becomes an urge for the team to seek corporate sponsorship to let the wings of our passion spread wide & fly high. Your help will not only provide us with funds but also create a healthy symbiosis between your company & our team. An association with our team would surely guarantee a promising and effective human resource for the near future.
