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 controlling the robot with the hand gesture, which is done by a wrist band module which can sense the gestures of our hand. The gesture controlling can be done with the 6 axis gyro sensor, mpu6050.

Proposed Programme Highlights

  • Two day exclusive training on Gesture Controlled Robotics
  • 80% of training will be hands-on / Practical sessions
  • Specially designed Robotic basic Kits (take away option also available)
  • Hand gesture control kit with WiFi connectivity
  • 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 which can be controlled with hand gestures.
