2 Days Workshop on Robotics

 

This Robotics workshop mainly focuses on the students eager to learn Robotics from Basic. They will get the chance to expand their knowledge in the field of designing, construction, operation, and application of Robot with real time hand on practical experience.

 

Workshop Duration: 2 days (16 hrs.)

 

The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days, with eight hour session each day in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hands on sessions. At the end of this workshop, a small competition will be organized among the participating students and winners will be awarded with a Merit Certificate.

 

Day 1 (Session 1)

 Introduction to Robotics

 Basics of Robot Electronics:

 

  • Basic Electronic Components

  • Fundamental Electrical Concepts

  • Sensors

  • Operational Amplifier

  • Integrating Circuit

  • Interfacing of Sensors

  • Motors and Controlling Circuit

  • Interfacing of Motors

 

Day 1 (Session 2)

 Introduction to Microcontrollers

 

This session would deal with the basics of Microcontroller. The focus will be on the AVR series micro controller- ATMega8, which is one of the most powerful and widely used 8 bit micro controller.

  • What is Microcontroller?

  • Difference between Microcontroller and Microprocessor.

  • Microcontroller Architecture and Interfacing.

  • How can we use Microcontroller in our Own Circuits?

 

Introduction to Programming Languages

 

  • Programming Languages- Assembly vs Embedded C.

  • Microcontroller Programming using 'Embedded C'.

 

Discussion on Different Algorithms

 

  • Line Following Robot Algorithms

  • Edge Avoiding Robot Algorithm

  • Obstacle Avoider Robot Algorithm

  • Wall Following Robot Algorithm

  • Sound Operated Robot Algorithm

  • Light Searching Robot Algorithm

 

Installation of Software and Debugging

 

  • Writing your First 'Embedded C' Program in AVR Studio.

  • Program Compilation and Debugging.

  • Loading Compiled 'C' Program into Microcontroller

 

Day 2 (Session 3)

 

Assembling the DIY kit

 

Assembling plays a major role that deals with the mechanical section of Robotics including mounting of components and mechanical stability.

 

Generating different LED Patterns

 

Development of Line Following Robot

 

As the name suggests, Line Follower Robot is well programmed mobile machine that can follow a path visible like Black Line on White Surface or vice versa. A simple fuzzy logic will do the job of maneuvering the robot according to the Line Following Algorithm discussed in session 2.

 

Development of Edge Avoiding Robot

 

Edge Avoiding Robot is a mobile machine that senses the presence & absence of surface below it and avoids the absence of the surface using the Edge Avoiding Algorithm discussed in session 2.

 

Note: These are just the major aspects that we will be discussing, each point will be elaborated in detail with demonstrations of the tools and techniques.

 

Project to be covered

 

  • Black Line Follower

  • White Line Follower

  • Intelligent Line Follower

  • Edge Avoider Robot

  • Wall Follower Robot

  • Light Searching Robot

  • Photophobic Robot

  • Phototropic Robot

  • Sound Operated Robot (Optional)
