Hospitality

SASTRA University and Team DAKSH extend a very warm welcome to all the participants without whose help and support DAKSH cannot have attained the dizzying heights that it is at now.

DAKSH has, for a few years now, been an amalgamation of Techno-Managerial-Socio-Cultural events which have drawn participants from all over the country. This year, DAKSH shall continue this rich tradition and in order that the heritage that we have inherited is not just passed on, but also added to, Team DAKSH has decided to do its bit to aid in the revival of Ancient Wisdom by conducting DAKSH under the grand theme of ‘Ancient Wisdom and Modern Technology’.

Participants are the most important part of any event. Thus, more importance will be given to you all during your stay at SASTRA than will be afforded to our own. Hospitality is not merely about allocating food and accommodation to all of you, but about making you all feel at home in an alien environment and making you want to return every year. We, Team DAKSH, have ensured that every need of yours will be taken care of when you are a participant in our fest. Enjoy your stay at SASTRA.

Accommodation:

On reaching the SASTRA University campus, participants are requested to report to the main Hospitality Desk which will be put up near the entrance, next to the Command Center, and be open 24 hours a day. You will be guided to your place of stay by our volunteers at the desk. Any queries you have regarding DAKSH can be asked of the volunteers without hesitation.

Participants might have to share their rooms with those from other colleges. We shall try our best to accommodate participants from the same college together, but in case this does not happen, we implore the participants to understand that logistical difficulties can come up in spite of meticulous planning. Participants will be provided with mattresses and pillows, and other basic facilities required.

All participants who have registered for accommodation in advance will be notified via email about the confirmation of their accommodation. They are required to produce a printout of the confirmation email that will be sent to them. This will allow us to make the process smoother for you all.

All participants are required to carry their student ID cards at all times.

A nominal fee will be collected from the participants for the accommodation.

about daksh

DAKSH, the international techno-management extravaganza of SASTRA, is a reflection of the abilities of students to keep up with the world of science and technology which has been metamorphosing at breakneck speeds.

Events

Originally envisioned for the Engineering disciplines alone, Daksh has evolved to encompass the disciplines of Management and Law as well, to now serve as the quintessential amalgamation of engineering, management, law, entertainment and social diversities.

The most recent version DAKSH OCTA, was centered on counterin terrorism with students surpassing themselves in getting innovative for a safer tomorrow. This year's edition, in keeping with the growing realization that our ancestors had a veritable mine of knowledge that we are yet to delve into, will be centered on the grand theme of 'Ancient Wisdom and Modern Technology'.

Rama's Bridge

One of the greatest architectural marvels of Indian Mythology is the bridge to Lanka constructed by Rama and his army. It may or may not be a legend. But even if it is, legends always have a basis in fact. That fact is what you have to explore in this event.
If you had ever been fascinated by Rama’s bridge and wondered how it had been constructed, this is your chance to find out for real. Daksh gives you a chance to build a bridge that floats on water without any external aids. Let the hypotheses begin!

What's Next?

Do you feel that you perennially have an excess of energy that seems to be unable to find an outlet? Are ‘What can I do next?’ your most frequently used words? Well then here’s a chance to channel all that excess into winning a prize.
‘What next..??’ is an event that primarily unlocks one’s innate desire to shy away from equanimity. Get ready to immerse yourself in IS codes in round one, followed by a barrage of tasks, each of which will guide you to the next.
Can you shift from one task to another incessantly, without pause?
Speed, skill and of course, sound fundamentals – think you have all three? Find out, at Daksh ’15.

Traffic'd

The objective is simple. It is a problem faced everyday by you, me and everybody else. Sometimes one just can’t help but scream with frustration when stuck in a traffic jam when you really have to be present somewhere else.
This event is designed to be an outlet to all that frustration. Remember every painstaking moment that you have spent in a traffic jam and vent out your frustration by coming up with a solution to the traffic problem of the area we have shown and help its inhabitants for years to come!

Aero Glider

Here’s a wakeup call for all those of you who thought that planes had to have propulsion systems to work. The fact of the matter is, they don’t. There are planes that can just glide without any motoring action at all.
Armed with these facts, are you now ready to build and fly your own sailplane?
Forge your thoughts and construct an aircraft that propels through, but with no intrusion beyond, the vicinity specified. Experience the true spirit of engineering.

General: The participants are requested to stick to the rules while building the glider.

  • Length of the Aircraft: Minumum of 15cm
  • Aspect Ratio: 5 to 6
    [Aspect ratio = length of the wing/ width of the wing]
  • Launching Mechanisms: Elastic, thread, hand-chuck etc. Strictly no electronic launching mechanism should be equipped

Auto Bot

The underlying principle behind a line follower is ridiculously simple: Just switch on a motor when the light reflected from a coloured surface reaches the receiver connected to your bot. Now, an autobot works on the same principle, but the basic idea is expanded beyond a single line and is extrapolated to work for a grid system. Remember that grids are just crisscrossed lines, and that the bot you design today could very well be a prototype for auto-navigation tomorrow. Your idea can change the world!

Crazy Contraptions

Do you have an uncanny knack for breaking virtually unmanageable tasks down into simple statements, when looked at with the right perspective?
Do you think you have mastered conversion of energy from one form to another? Think you can work wonders even with a small marble and assorted instruments, given time and the right motivation?
De-convolute the most complex of actions into the simplest in an array of steps. Get inspired by Tom & Jerry and show us your own version of their crazy traps to hit it big in this event. This is as crazy as it gets!

Problem Statement:
A small green round marble will be provided to you. You should construct all possible mechanisms to dislocate it into the air from a level of 10 cm from ground (Can be changed to a different theme).

Bot Run

How many hours would you have spent on temple run, cursing the ‘monster’ behind you, or the ones by your side every time you fell? Too many to count, eh?
Well, it’s time to put all those hours of practice to good use. How do you feel about being in a real time version of temple run? Only, you can use a bot as a surrogate this time so that you still have something to curse. Navigate your bot through an obstacle course with the ‘monster’ hot on your trail. Collect all the points in your way in the quickest possible time, for unfortunately, the only difference between this and the game version is that you do not get to go back on track once you are knocked out.

Scrap Attack

An event that tests everything right from the very basics of mathematics and physics to your familiarity with mechanics. Breeze through the questions asked of you in the first round, draw upon your practical knowledge in the second and kick-start your creativity in the third to make the working model of a surprise topic on the day of the event. Be ready to push your mental resources to the fullest, because the only physical ones that we will be giving you are a few pieces of scrap. Create your model from nothing, literally.



Judging criteria:

  • Final decision will be based on the efficient working model.
  • Final round judgment criteria will be intimated to the participants on the day of the event.
  • In case of tie points earned in the previous rounds will be considered.

Meccar

Thermodynamics will tell you that self-propagating machines that will run on infinitely can never be produced. It is, however, possible to improve mechanical efficiency considerably and make a fully mechanised device work under its own steam for a quantifiable period. Your job it to integrate this into a fully mechanised car.
Design one and thrust it to a distance difficult for your opponents to reach. Bring on track your powerfully energized roadster capable of traversing any kind of slope, which by the way, is your only obstacle. It does not get easier than this.
There is only one judging criterion: The distance that your car has travelled. You can make a car that runs up and down a slope, can’t you?

Green electricity

One topic that never grows old, and is likely to remain that way for as long as we shall all live is that of green energy. One school of thought says that if left unchecked,population will grow uninhibitedly and will finally be taken care of by nature. That is what seems to be happening in our country. Uninhibited growth of population. It may be brought back into reason by nature in the future, but till then, taking care of the vast population’s energy needs falls on the shoulders of us engineers. So design a circuit to produce green electricity, keeping in mind that fossil fuels may well be exhausted within our lifetimes.
Exhibition:
The Participants should exhibit their circuit at the time of Daksh to the organizers and judges. The circuit should be fully functional and the application of the circuit should be clearly displayed.


Judging Criteria:

The following criteria will be considered in decreasing order of priority.

  • Functionality and Application of the circuit.
  • A fully functional circuit.
  • Innovative and Creative Designs.
  • A circuit combining multiple disciplines.
  • Presentation of the circuit.
  • Cost effectiveness of the circuit.
  • Scoring scheme lies completely in the hands of the Judges at the time of the event.

ELECTRADE

The name says it all. In this event, the virtual money that you will be provided with must be used to buy the equipment required for making the circuit connections. The real fun begins then. In this amalgam of business acumen and academic knowledge, one not only has to economically buy the parts one has to use, but also actually use the parts to make your idea, a reality. The best circuit designers may not necessarily win. Street smarts are the order of the day!

Problem statement and Event format:

  • At the start of this event, each team will have some amount of virtual money allotted to them.
  • A set of problem statements will be displayed to all teams in an Incomplete and Encoded form.
  • Each team have to buy a problem statement with the virtual money they already have.
  • After extracting the original statement, if the team is confident that they can complete the task, the team can proceed with designing and implementation.
  • Some questions may also include implementation in MULTISIM along with practical circuits.
  • If any team is unable to do the task, they can buy new problem statements among the list.
  • Discussion between two teams is strictly prohibited.
  • The components required for implementation should be purchased with the virtual money.
  • If you buy a component and later realize that it's of no use to you, you can trade it in the dummy store in return for something at a lesser price than that on the price tag.

Judging Criteria:

  • The basic fulfilment of the problem statement.
  • Management and Innovativeness.
  • Time taken to generate the right output.
  • The amount of money left with them at the end.

B-Business

The world is always in need of people who can take products to the world after they have been developed. A product that has been developed but rots away occluded is of no use to anyone. That’s where the world of entrepreneurship comes in. They are the people who make the people believe in a product.
This kind of entrepreneurial talent is especially important for the School of Biotechnology because it is important that you not only develop a product, but convince the world of it’s worth in order to generate the capital to make the conceptualization of your product a reality.
Be it a biomedical gadget or consumable product or health care advancement, bring it to us if you think your idea has scientific rationale with a potential for scale up in the market. We are all ears!

Green Chem E Car

With ‘Going Green’ being the order of the day due to rapid consumption of non-renewable resources, every avenue available to mankind has to be explored on order that we avoid fuel consumption and protect the atmosphere from pollution.
Thus, channel all your fury at the destruction of Mother Earth into designing a car that runs entirely on chemicals and renders minimum harm to the atmosphere. Make your car travel through a specified track (which will have a few obstacles) and make your design adhere to the specs given to emerge the victor in this event. The length of the track will be mentioned after the selection of abstract. In addition to this, it has to hold a payload of 0-300 ml water. The size of the designed cars must not exceed certain specifications and they must operate using 'green' methods, i.e., there can be emissions in the form of a visible liquid or gas, such as exhaust, but they should not pollute the surroundings.

Judging Criteria:

  • Length covered by the car - a
  • Time taken by the car for traveling that length - b
  • Stopping of the car at the end of the track - c
  • Environmental effects - d
  • Availability of the reactants - e
  • TOTAL POINTS = [(a*100) + (b*50) + (c*125) + (d*150) + (e*50)]
  • The participant with greater total points will be declared the winner.

INTERRUPTEUR

Gone are the days when we ask you to trip a circuit using electrical means. That is just so run-of-the-mill. Anyone can do that, right? So, we take it up a notch this year. What we want you to do is to design a circuit that will interrupt electricity using chemicals.
Wait for it. It gets better. You not only have to design a circuit, but also design it in such a manner that it trips the electrical circuit after a pre-defined interval. Are you up for the task? Did anything that you have come across in all your years of chemical study prepare you for this? Do you think you can design a ‘Punctual’ chemical circuit? Daksh `15 holds the answers!
Event Descripption: Each team will be provided with an electrical circuit. The funda of the event is to stop the flow of electricity at the end of 5 minutes exact. So each team has to come up with an apparatus using chemical means to interrupt the flow of electricity at the end of exact 5 minutes. The team which nears the time, wins the event.

Networking

You and your friends are locked up in a cell by terrorists. You have to crack the encoded security locks by hacking into the system. Unfortunately, the lock has three stages to unlock.
‘Ghost Protocol’ has you plumbing into the depths of your ingenuity to answer seemingly innocuous questions based on networking. But getting the answer only pulls you deeper into the vortex of code breaking and encryption. The only way out is to suss out the building blocks of a system architecture and making a mockery out of it. Are you up for the challenge?

Webmasters

There are many different ways to design and create a web page. The method is left to you, what matters to us is your destination. Design a meaningful static webpage, which if found agreeable to the judges, will qualify to the next round. Here’s where the real test of your skills lies.
One spends so much time on the internet these days that one just takes all the content on it to be a given, without so much as a second of thought to the amount of work that goes into designing even a single page. If you are one of the few who do wonder about the work that goes into creating one, and feel that you can do a better job than what you see, ‘Web Masters’ is here for you. Show off your expertise in creating a dynamic web page and your command over data bases to take your first step in creating a better virtual world for all of us to surf in.
