Motus Simulation is multi-disciplinary a research and development group. We primarily focus on Humanoid robotics and currently we are working on various human motion mapping systems. We have been successfully able to produce models and devices through our research such as finger exoskeletons and novel stretch sensors.
The team consists of interdisciplinary engineers all working towards one mission of making VIT's first autonomous car, Road safety in our country is very poor compared to that in foreign countries. The reasons are obvious. Lack of discipline, underage drivers and many more factors can be listed. As budding engineers, we feel that it is important to improve road safety by putting technology into use. Hence the efforts began to build an "Autonomous vehicle".
So here we are developing the first prototypes of our vision, and for the same we have already developed the completely scalable Design, using differential speed mechanisms for upto "zero-degree turns" and working towards the development of sensor fusion with ROS and computer vision algorithms for object avoidance and lane detection.
Our main mission is to become VIT's first autonomous car team and participate in international competitions like IGVC to prove our mettel.
India houses more than 10 million upper limb (Hand) amputees. Most of the amputees belong to low income and/or lower middle-class background and cannot afford expensive prosthesis. Thus we seek to bridge the rift between economically separated communities through affordable health-technology. Creating technology that is adaptive and can be used by various different users without changes in design is a core tenet. We have simplified the process of integrating a Prosthetic with the amputee by orders of magnitude. The Eklavya device is a prosthetic, which is capable of being dismantled in minutes and developed in a modular form to allow for multiple extensions to be attached. Parts can be just as easily replaced as added. We are driving cutting edge innovation with a team of inspired and talented individuals to create medical technology that adheres to the needs of the patients as well as the healthcare industry.
Team Sammard participates annually in the CanSat competition conducted by American Astronautical Society. On our maiden attempt in 2018, we went on to achieve 18th position out of 105 teams globally and came 1st in Asia-Pacific region. Our mission comprised of designing and building an aero-braking heatshield equipped probe. The probe was supposed to transmit atmospheric data during its descent, eject the heatshield whilst simultaneously deploying a parachute at 300m altitude level and protect an egg which simulated a fragile scientific instrument. Team Sammard has also qualified for the competition in 2019, where an auto gyro system needs to be used to control the descent of the probe . The major areas of work in our team include aeronautical, computer science, electrical, mechanical and management
Team UAV is an aerospace team under Creation Labs VIT, we develop all kinds of aircrafts from quadcopters and multirotor to ornithopters and fixed wings aircrafts. Founded in 2014 as a 6-member team, Team UAV is now 22 members strong. We are a dedicated team of students that strives to engineer an UAV of the highest calibre. Made up of completely undergraduate students, the team builds different types of aircrafts meeting the demands of problem statements provided by other parties and provides aerial solutions for the problems that we feel can be solved by use of our UAVs.
Team RoverX, a part of Creation Labs at VIT University,is an all undergraduate student-driven project team. We work on developing prototypes of the Martian Rovers which are then used to compete in different national and international level competitions including University Rover Challenge (URC), European Rover Challenge (ERC) and the Indian Rover Challenge (IRC).
In 2016, at the European Rover Challenge, we were placed 12th overall and 1st in Asia. Our first participation in the University Rover Challenge held in the Mars Desert Research Station in the USA, back in May of 2018 landed us the 20th position overall and 1st in Asia, among 95 participating teams from all over the world. We had also taken part in the Indian Rover Challenge 2019, where we secured 4th place, among top international teams from Poland and Bangladesh.
