A 2 day Workshop on Basic Autonomous Robotics, covering the following topics:

  • Basic Robotics
  • Actuators : Motors, Pneumatics etc.
  • Steering Mechanisms
  • Motor Driving Circuits
  • Microcontrollers
  • Circuit Design
  • Embedded Coding
  • Practical exposure to constructing a Line Following Robot running on a Microcontroller

All participants shall work in groups of a maximum of 3 people and shall receive a take home kit consisting of a Line Following Robot.The kit will consist of a general purpose development board which can be expanded and modified to make other similar Autonomous Robots.


Any member from the SRA with knowledge of coding in C/C++ and a basic idea of electronics and logic circuits, which can be obtained from presentations we can provide on request. The members can also approach the core group members to learn about the same before the date of the workshop.


December 1st and 2nd. The schedule will up put up on the website( so keep checking the announcements section. To stay up to date  with SRA events, you can use this calendar. You can access it either via a calendering application like Google Calendar or Windows Calendar, or as an RSS feed.

How Much?

Rs. 1500 for a group of 3 people. This covers the cost of a Take Home Pre Soldered Development Board for the Atmega 16 along with motor drivers, 2 motors and the line sensor array.

Participants are requested to bring along their own power supplies and multimeters, as these shall not be provided.

We recommend variable power supplies providing 9 Volts DC OR a battery pack (Ni Cd or Li Ion) giving anything above 9 V.

How Many?

Maximum Number Of Groups is 20. Entry is on First Come First Serve basis.

So I'm enthu and ready to get broke!

Cool. Call Niraj Sanghvai at 9769282814 or email him at niraj(AT)vjti(DOT)info.
