E-Yantra

An initiative by IIT Bombay

e-Yantra Project is an initiative by IIT Bombay that aims to create the next generation of embedded systems engineers with a practical outlook to help provide practical solutions to some of the real world problems. The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) sponsors E-Yantra under the National Mission for ICT in Education (NMEICT) program.
IIT Bombay envisages the ‘e-Yantra’ platform to harness the intellectual talent of young India to create utility based robotic applications for usage across variety of applications such as: agriculture, manufacturing, defense, home, city maintenance and services industries. The overall mission is to grow a rich eco-system of ideas and applications that can propel India’s growth curve and productivity through intelligent funneling of robotics in daily living built upon an existing pool of knowledge developed by students working on such projects at engineering colleges in the area of embedded systems.
We have taken an initiative to setup e-Yantra Robotics Lab under e-Yantra Lab Set-up Initiative (eLSI) by IIT Bombay. SBPCOE e-Yantra Robotics Lab trains the students in embedded systems and micro-controller programming by engaging them through the Project Based Learning (PBL) mode.

Benefits of e-Yantra robotics lab to students:

  • Awareness of embedded systems, robotics technology and mechatronics.
  • It provides platform to design, develop, program and test of robots to various applications.
  • Students can participate in national and international robotics competitions.
  • Improve BE projects with help of e-Yantra open source community.
  • Exposure to job opportunities in robotics.
  • Encourage to use robots to solve real life problems.

e-Yantra Competitions:

  • e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC)
  • e-Yantra Robotics Competition Plus (eYRC+)
  • e-Yantra Robotics Teacher Competition (eYRTC)
  • e-Yantra Ideas Competition (eYIC)
