Indians to take part in robot-building competition in Australia

Students from around the world including the US, Singapore, Taiwan, China, India and Australia will participate in Regional First Robotics competition to be held in Sydney Olympic Park. The event has been organized in collaboration with Macquarie University, Google, Ford, AndyMark, SalesForce, Autodesk, Rockwell Automation, BAE Systems and Boeing.

The robot building contest has been organized to celebrate and inspire love of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in children, Macquarie University said in a statement. This year’s First Robotics Competition (FRC) will be held on March 17 and is said to be the biggest contest with nearly 50 teams competing to see which robots can catapult boulders and scale obstacles to ‘conquer’ an opponent’s tower, it said.

The competition is a culmination of six weeks of teamwork that include designing, building and programming robots to enter the event. In order to stimulate creative thinking and design, all teams worked with the same construction materials and control system components to build their robot, according to the statement.

“It’s one thing to know how to build a robot that can complete a set of criteria in a game, but we also want to equip these kids to have the skills to lead a team, and to collaborate with their growing network of peers to tackle bigger, real-world issues with the skills they’ve picked up along the way,” said Australia Regional Director Luan Heimlich.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) would add $57.4 billion to the Australia’s GDP over the next 20 years. Macquarie University Vice-Chancellor S Bruce Dowton said: “Almost half of all employers expect requirements for STEM-qualified employees to increase in the next five years alone.”

Continued education in this space is vitally important to ensure Australia’s workforce will have the ability to support future industries, Dowton said.

PIN for Signal Setup of DEN Set Top Box India

DEN (Digital Entertainment Network) is one of the most popular and largest cable network in India. It become more popular since Indian Government made the cable digitization compulsory.

DEN provides both SD and HD Set Top boxes. Mostly people go with the SD connection as they provide more channels in good picture quality.

Today, I got to my relative's house and found that their DEN SD is not working at all. I go through the options and found at last "Settings" and in its sub-menu "System Settings". I went on all the options Diagnostics, Signal Setup and TV Setup. I found Signal Setup but it want a password to open.

I have found out 6969 as the Universal Code for setting signal in DEN Set Top Box. I open the Signal setting and found "HOME Ch S21M" set as default Transport Stream. So that's the way I able to found out the Pin of DEN Set Top Box.
