Details of the Workshops:
Wall E : The Workshop on Basic Autonomous Robots
A 3 day Workshop on Basic Autonomous Robotics, covering the following topics:
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.
Rs. 1900 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, USB Programmer 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.
Maximum Number Of Groups is 20.Entry is selective based on your answers in the form.
Aquila - The Workshop on Hand Launched Gliders
What is it?
A HLG is a non-powered glider launched by hand and its flight path can be controlled before the launch itself. It is more responsive to lift and sink helping you to understand the factors affecting lift better. Although its flights are comparatively short, it helps you learn from every launch and teaches you where and how not to fly and how to design a better aircraft.
Any SRA member who has a basic idea of pressure, forces, moments and fluid properties can attend. Information on these can be obtained from presentations we can provide on request. The members can also approach the senate members to learn about the same before the date of the workshop.
