  • Project
  • Kit


This workshop mainly focuses on the students eager to learn Robotics from Basic. HC-05 / HC-06 based Bluetooth Controlled Robot works in heeding with the commands sent from Android based Smart Phone using a Developed Android Application and Bluetooth Technology. This workshop helps participants to understand the designing concepts and use of microcontrollers, serial communication and microcontroller programming in Embedded 'C' language.

The duration of this workshop will be 1 day , with 3 Sessions , properly divided into theory and hand on practical sessions.

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.
