ACCS – ARM DESIGN CHALLENGE 2017 WINNERS

Among the pan-India initiatives championed by the Advanced Computing and Communications Society (ACCS) as a means to realize its mission of enhancing learning and engineering insights amongst engineering students is the annual, ACCS-arm Design Challenge (ADC).

With the theme of ‘Autonomous Vehicle’, ADC2017 is sponsored by the arm University Program (www.arm.com), is made possible by the support of: TVS Motor Company (www.tvsmotor.com) through its electric vehicle platform and of NXP Semiconductors (www.nxp.com) through its arm based FRDM-K64F platform. ADC2017 is also the first edition of TVS Young Inventor. ADC 2017 is conducted pan-India, for over eight months.

The ADC2017 on Autonomous Vehicle’s TVS Young Inventor awardees are:

  1. FIRST PRIZE – Rs. ONE LAKH + Medallions to the Institute, Mentor, Team Members: Mahalingam College of Engineering and Technology, Pollachi, Tamilnadu

ACCS – arm Design Challenge 2017 demonstrates what students can accomplish ‘autonomously’ when industry mentors them

BY ACCS · MARCH 25, 2018

Among the pan-India initiatives championed by the Advanced Computing and Communications Society (ACCS, accsindia.org) as a means to realize its mission of enhancing learning and engineering insights amongst engineering students is the annual, ACCS-arm Design Challenge (ADC).

With the theme of ‘Autonomous Vehicle’, ADC2017 is sponsored by the arm University Program (arm.com), is made possible by the support of TVS Motor Company (tvsmotor.com) through its electric vehicle platform and of NXP Semiconductors (nxp.com) through its arm based FRDM-K64F platform. ADC2017 is also the first edition of TVS Young Inventor.

From among teams spanning wide spectrum of academic institutions pan-India, giving weightage to the technical merit, engineering insights, domain innovation, product engineering,  16 teams are shortlisted for participating in the design challenge. All the shortlisted teams are provided two platforms – an electric automotive platform by TVS Motors and a arm Cortex M4 based platform made by NXP Semiconductors. Teams are to transmogrify the given automatic electric vehicle (TVS’) into an Autonomous Vehicle using the given control platform (arm’s). Teams can add to the given automotive platform, what they deem is essential to realize their concept.

Uniquely, ACCS has deployed dedicated, industry-seasoned, guidance team to guide, drive, evaluate, advise, =, monitor, review the teams’ progress from the day one. It’s NOT farfetched to say that such a mentoring scarcely exists, if at all, as ACCS was literally available 24×7 to the teams. This meant that all the teams – that were  remotely, if at all, aware of this concept, ended up delivering some of the top notch solutions in this space by the time this eight months design challenge is completed.

After couple of mid-term reviews, nurtured by such mentoring, 13 teams were selected for the finals. These teams presented their work, demonstrated their autonomous vehicle over multiple rounds, and were measured against different performance yardsticks, by jury panels comprising of domain leaders from industry, academia.

The ADC2017 on Autonomous Vehicle’s TVS Young Inventor awardees are:

  1. FIRST PRIZE – Rs. ONE LAKH + Medallions to the Institute, Mentor, Team Members: Mahalingam College of Engineering and Technology, Pollachi, Tamilnadu
  2. SECOND PRIZE Rs. SIXTY THOUSAND + Medallions to the Institute, Mentor, Team Members: Sri Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management, Nagpur
  3. THIRD PRIZE Rs. FORTY THOUSAND + Medallions to the Institute, Mentor, Team Members: Muthoot Institute of Technology & Science, Puthencruz, Kerala
  4. In addition, TWO awards of Rs TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND each + Medallion for two outstanding individual performance were awarded

The Advanced Computing and Communications Society, the arm University Program and TVS Motors take great pleasure in congratulating the winners and commend the mentors and their institutions for their leadership.
