Indigenous category includes robots that are constructed from scratch. Their mechanical structure, controls etc. are designed and fabricated by the teams themselves. The electronic control modules (including all electronic boards and motor drivers etc) should be designed and manufactured by the students.
Modular/Lego category includes robots that are developed using ready-made kits for example Lego or Vex Robotics kits.
Every year, hundreds of robots from institutions nation-wide gather at the College of E&ME to participate in the National Engineering Robotics Contest (NERC). The Contest provides a platform to students to come forth with novel engineering ideas. NERC celebrated its 10th Anniversary this year. Over 170 teams registered for the event last year.
