OVERVIEW

Mobile Robotics Workshop mainly focuses on the student eager to learn about Robotics using Cellular communication. They will get a chance to expand their knowledge in the field of designing, construction, operation, and wireless application of Robot using Mobile-Phone's generated DTMF (Dual Tune Multiple Frequency) tone.


The duration of this workshop will be 1 day, with 3 Sessions , 3 hours each, properly divided into theory and hand on practical sessions.Certificate of participation will be provided by Robothlon 2017 in association with Rendezvous IIT Delhi.


Certificate by Robothlon'17 in Association With Rendezvous 2017 IIT Delhi.

Day 1 (Session 1)

Introduction to Basics of Robotics

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
  • Assembly vs Embedded C.
  • Microcontroller Programming using 'Embedded C'.
Discussion on Different Algorithms
  • Line Following Robot
  • Edge Avoiding Robot
  • Obstacle Avoider Robot
  • Wall Following Robot
  • Sound Operated Robot
  • Light Searching Robot
  • Mobile Controlled Robot
Installation of Software and Debugging
  • Writing your First 'Embedded C' Program in AVR Studio.
  • Program Compilation and Debugging.
  • Loading Compiled 'C' Program into Microcontroller using Robosapiens 'AVR BOOTFlasher v1.0 Beta'

Day 1 (Session 3)

Assembling the DIY kit of Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0

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

Generating different LED Patterns using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0
Development of Line Following Robot using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0

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 using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0

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.

Generating different LED Patterns using Mobile Phone
Development of Mobile Controlled Robot using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0

A Mobile Controlled Robot is a mobile device that provides wide-range of wireless control ability to your robot sitting in one place, until and unless your mobile phone gets out of signal.
