Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another function?

Our project is a solar  hybrid robot which can be used for mining and transport hazardous things like bomb.Its art and beauty lies in its aim of saving innocent lives and commitment to sustainability

When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?

We started working on this project this May.We took one month to complete it.

What was your goal in building this project?

Once I and my friend Surendra Singh Suda saw a post on the internet about 28 deaths of innocent Nigerian kids in the mining industry. Further research revealed that 12,000 people die annually due to mining activities. Therefore we decided to make a robot which will replace humans in dangerous industries such as the mining industry

Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?

Yes our project does help in solving a problem. Actually it solves several problems.It may prevent deaths of humans in the mining industry. It may also be used to transfer a bomb from a crowded place to a secluded place.

What makes your idea unique?

Our idea is made unique by the fact that it is a homemade robot made by two students which are 15 and 20 year old.It uses renewable energy in the form of solar energy.This project did not receive any supervision or technical guidance from any elders.It is relevant in todays world filled with hazardous things like bomb,radioactive waste,so lifesaving.Cost of this robot is less than 80 euros.It promotes idea of sustainable environment through use of solar energy and recycled goods

In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?

We are using ballbearings in many parts of the robot such as tyres and the motor.We have used radial ballbearings to reduce the amount of friction.

What is the most important thing you want people to know about your project?

We want people to know that technology as machines can be used for betterment of society and with aim of saving lives like in case of our this robot.

How will you use the $5,000 prize?
