It becomes "three heads and six arms" whenever speaking of "science and innovation"!

It walks vigorously, with a heroic posture, and can come and go freely whether it's slopes, steps or mud roads and snow.

It is powerful, stable and reliable, and it can carry 4 people on foot.

With its "smart brain", it can overcome obstacles and navigate independently...

This is not a superhero in a science fiction novel. This is the daily life of the "black technology" robot "BIT-NAZA" independently developed by the student team of motion drive and control research of BIT.

In the past 5 years, with a number of innovative works such as "BIT-NAZA" and "BIT Youlong", the student team of motion drive and control research of BIT has won 14 national, provincial and ministerial-level scientific and technological innovation competition awards, including the "Challenge Cup" National University Student Extracurricular Academic Technology Competition, and China Postgraduate Robot Innovation Design. On the road of university students' technological innovation, a beautiful landscape has been written.

What is the "secret" for the continuous innovation and outstanding achievements of this college student team?

Three types of scientific research projects cultivating students' three abilities

Si Jinge is a 2020 PhD student in the motion drive and control research team. He has once won the first prize of the National Robotics Championship with his work "BIT-NAZA" six-wheeled foot robot. As a "veteran" who has participated in scientific and technological innovation competitions for many times, when talking about the winning secrets of the team, Si Jinge said, "that's because our team really has' three heads and six arms'.".

The "three heads" in the "three heads and six arms" refers to the talent training model of "three types of scientific research projects to cultivate students' three abilities" created by the team. Specifically, it is to cultivate students' innovation ability in basic theory and key technology through basic research projects represented by National Natural Science Foundation of China, cultivate students' engineering practice ability with applied research projects represented by scientific and technological cooperation, and cultivate students' comprehensive ability with discipline competition projects represented by extracurricular scientific and technological innovation competition.

"Sports drive and control research team" talent training model

"I only knew that I was immersed in work, and I didn't know how to organize other people to work together. Through the training and exercise of the team, I learned how to lead the team to work together, and my organization and coordination ability has been significantly improved. I also often instruct students to participate in competitions, instruct them on how to prepare PPT, how to make presentations, and how to plan projects as a whole. " Under the cultivation and exercise of this model, Si Jinge's innovation ability, practical ability and comprehensive ability have been significantly improved, and he has gradually grown into a backbone of student science and technology innovation who can act independently.

With the ability to innovate, practice, and comprehensively, students will be more comfortable in scientific research projects and scientific competitions. This is one of the secrets of the sports drive and control research student team's repeated success in the competition.

"Six-arm collaboration" making technological innovation more efficient

"Jingles, ticks..." In the laboratory, the "RuYingSuiXing" UAV smart mobile airport project team is doing experiments, setting up devices, and debugging equipment, and is very busy. In 2021, the team won the special prize of the 11th "Challenge Cup" Capital University Students Extracurricular Academic Science and Technology Competition, and is currently preparing for the national competition.

The "RuYingSuiXing" project team is a team composed entirely of undergraduates. They are faced with competitors from major universities in the capital. It is not easy to win the "Challenge Cup" Beijing Special Prize. So why can " RuYingSuiXing " stand out and come to the fore? "This is due to our unique "six arms", specifically the coordination of ‘two teams' and ‘four mechanisms'." said instructor Professor Wang Shoukun.

The "two teams" are the tutor team and the student team. The tutor team is composed of professors, associate professors, senior experimenters, and senior engineers; the student team includes doctoral students, master students and undergraduates. The collaboration of the two teams makes the process of "theory into reality" more efficient. "Students can quickly implement any innovative ideas. We can complete the installations that took months to complete in a few days. This greatly improves work efficiency and students can continuously improve their works during the competition. "Wang Shoukun said.

The "four mechanisms" are the experimental platform opening mechanism, that is, all the experimental platforms of the research team are open to students for free use and flexible deployment; the resource allocation and incentive mechanism is to encourage students to actively invest in scientific research and study, and to achieve scientific research results, thus fully commending and encouraging students who have achieved scientific research results and made contributions, and mobilizing their enthusiasm for scientific research; teacher-student collaboration mechanism, that is, to provide students with the same or similar scientific research project opportunities based on their interest and form a joint force between teachers and students; the exchange and discussion mechanism is to hold regular group meetings to study various problems encountered by students in scientific research projects and competitions, and to escort students in time.

Driving the "hot wheels" under the feet with internal drive

In addition to the cultivation of innovation ability, practical ability, and comprehensive ability, the research team also pays great attention to the education of students' ideals and beliefs, which runs through the entire chain of innovative talent training. Guide students to establish lofty ideals, internalize their ideals and beliefs into internal driving forces, explore infinite possibilities in innovative practice, realize the value of life, and serve the country's construction and social development.

"To build a technological power and achieve high-level technological self-reliance requires a batch of scientific and technological innovation talents to tackle key problems. Scientific and technological innovation is interesting and yet boring. When thinking of new ideas is exciting, but the process of repeated verification and practice is boring. Only when you have a strong internal drive can you use firm perseverance to overcome many difficulties." Said professor Wang Junzheng, the team leader. At the beginning of each semester, the team teachers will bring the students a carefully prepared "first lesson". Major breakthroughs in related fields of the country, future industry development trends, and innovative stories of outstanding students... Based on industry development, but also focusing on individual growth, the teachers guided the students to set great aspirations and make great strides on the road of scientific and technological innovation with vivid stories.

Some award certificates of the team

"This summer, Chen Zhihua, several other students and I have almost no rest. We have been doing experiments and debugging equipment in the laboratory. The driving force that supports us to persevere is our ideals and beliefs." Recalled Si Jinge.  In 2021, Chen Zhihua led the team to win the first prize of the 16th China Postgraduate Electronic Design Competition in the "Zhaoyi Innovation Cup" for his innovative work "Six-Wheeled Robot Multimodal Motion Control and Planning". Si Jinge led the team to win the second prize with the innovative work of "Rotor-wing UAV Ground Autonomous Recovery System".

In the future, the team will continue to struggle on the track of technological innovation, promote competition with research, and promote learning with competition, so as to comprehensively improve students' innovation ability, practical ability and comprehensive ability. Pay attention to innovative breakthroughs in basic theories and key technologies, promote the transformation and application of scientific research results, "write papers on the land of the motherland", and apply innovative results to the practice of national construction and social development!
