International Robotics Challenge


"You have competition every day because you set such high standards for yourself that you have to go out every day and live up to that."
- Michael Jordan

Since its inception in 1998, Techfest has stayed true to its motto of spreading the best of science and technology among the masses. It has slowly evolved into a universal platform to reach out to all tech-enthusiasts who wish to prove their mettle at the vanguard of technical competitions. Spreading its wings to the international arena, Techfest brings forth the International Robotics Challenge, a combat of robotic gladiators testing the very survival of the fittest.

The qualifying rounds for IRC will be held in all the participating countries - Bangladesh, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sweden, and Thailand. Winners of each of these country zonal will get direct entry into International Robotics Challenge Grand Finale to be held during Techfest 2014 at IIT Bombay. Any international team which didn't have an oppurtunity to participate in any zonal of IRC can participate in the International Robotics Challenge through the IRC Open (International) which will be held at Techfest 2014, India.
