Manipal , April 5, 2016 : Speaking to media, Seven-year-old Sarang Sumesh, of class 2 in a School in Cochin, was in Manipal to display his innovative robot fitted with ultrasonic and infrared technologies recently. Sarang said he was always interested in robotic science and mathematics. He is being guided and supported by his father Sumesh, who works as an engineer in Bengaluru.
The robot he developed has a sensor which helps the equipment to move forward and the infrared technology directs the robot. The ultrasound sensor inverses the loop and helps to conduct the action. The robot, fitted with two small motors with blade, can be used to mop the floor. A piece of wet cloth can be attached in between the blade and motors and it helps the motor to wipe the floor.
The dust particles and other materials are collected by the front blade which is operational and is stored in front, he added. He has also developed hand speed game using seven LEDs. When the button is pressed, the LED in the middle area will start blinking and the segment display would be enabled, he said. Sarang wants to be a scientist to conduct research in robotics science. He is also interested in playing football and chess.
