Robotics brings together several very different engineering areas and skills. Knowledge in Mechanical structures, Electronics, Electricity, & Programming are required for developing even the basic robots.

This workshop provides the basic concepts of Robotics, help participants to learn electronics & programming for developing three and four wheeled robots for various applications. The workshop will also focus on developing Android app with MIT AppInventor2. The syllabus has systematically designed so that, students can learn from the basics and design their own robots in future.

Android Robotics involve the control of robots with smart phone application and analyzing various functions / parameters at the robot side. In our workshop,  we help the students to develop a four wheeled rover which can be controlled remotely and to use it to find various parameters of the terrain in which it is moving.

Proposed Programme Highlights

  • Two day exclusive training on Android Controlled Robotics
  • 80% of training will be hands-on / Practical sessions
  • Specially designed Robotic basic Kits (take away option also available)
  • Inbuilt wifi enabled ESP8266 based control boards.
  • Follow up trainings and continued support are offered even after current training, based on request
  • 90 day free online support.

 Expected outcome

After completion of this workshop, the participants will understand the basics of robots, microcontrollers, interfacing sensors and motors, designing and developing four or three wheeled robots whica can be controlled from any remote location.
