A group from a School of Engineering as great as Computer Science of BRAC University has done story for a nation participating in a NASA Robotic Competition for a initial time.
After 3 rounds of selection, a eight-member group has been supposed to contest during a NASA’s Annual Lunabotics Mining Competition (LMC) 2011.
The group members have been Dr. Md. Khalilur Rhaman (Faculty Advisor), partner highbrow of a Department of Computer Science as great as Engineering, Shiblee Imtiaz Hasan (Team Leader), Mohammad Jonayet Hossain, Mahmudul Hasan Oyon as great as Kazi Mohammad Razin Anik, Imran Bin Jafar, Iftekhar Karim as great as Nirjhar Rouf.
The prestigious eventuality will take place during a NASA Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA, a hearth of NASA`s tellurian space flights, upon May 23-28.
LMC is a university-level foe written to rivet as great as keep students in science, technology, engineering as great as arithmetic (STEM).
NASA will without delay good from a foe by enlivening a growth of innovative lunar mine concepts from universities that might outcome in crafty ideas as great as solutions, that could be applied, to an tangible lunar mine device or payload.
Top 46 teams from all around a universe have been participating in a LMC, together with Harvard University, Virginia Tech, University of Illinois during Urbana-Champaign, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University as great as McGill University. BRAC University is a initial Bangladeshi group to experience in such an event.
Chairperson of BRAC Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, KCMG, as great as Vice-chancellor of BRAC University Prof. Ainun Nishat inaugurated a BRACU ChondroBot Sunday during BRAC University Indoor Games Room.
Speaking as arch guest, Fazle Hasan Abed congratulated a students as great as voiced goal that Bangladesh would go brazen with a feat of a latest generation.
During a demonstration, group personality Shiblee said, “We analyzed past success as great as failures of others as great as was equates to to pattern a simple, nonetheless fit as great as reliable, tele-robotic complement for lunar excavation. And carefree about bringing success for a country.”
Directors of a university as great as Chairpersons of opposite departments were benefaction between a guests.
It all due in October, 2010, when NASA authorized BRAC University’s entry, written by Shiblee Imtiaz Hasan, a BRACU CSE tyro as great as a target of most inhabitant as great as ubiquitous awards.
The sum drudge has been done with reused tools from opposite places, creation a certain stroke for a sourroundings during a same time.
