Workshop Details

No. of days: 2

Team Strength: 5 per team

Certification: Hawkeye Techworks

An accelerometer is a device that measures proper acceleration ("g-force"). Accelerobotics uses the accelerometer as the input device and the semi-autonomous robot moves according to the gesture made. Accelerobotics, otherwise called as gesture based robot, is an innovative concept that is gaining attention amongst students.
Accelerometers are used in various applications such as Engineering (Measuring vehicle acceleration), Industry (Machine health monitoring), Building and structural monitoring (Motion and vibration of a structure), Navigation, Transport, etc,.
Overview
The workshop spans for 2 days* which includes the theory, hands-on, fabrication, and testing sessions. No pre-requisites are required to attend this workshop. Our training pattern caters to need of beginners as well as professionals and graduates. Participants will learn all the basics and also the advanced concepts.
Outcome
Participants, at the end of the workshop, will be thorough with the concepts, technology, software, and hardware taught to them during the Accelerobotics workshop. With the knowledge and experience they gather at the workshop, the students will be capable of doing not only an accelerometer controlled robot, but also different interesting and innovative projects on their own from scratch.

Scope
Hands-on training is always two steps ahead in making the students understand the concepts of engineering than regular classrooms. This practical insight into the subjects they study makes them more and more confident and thus makes it easy for them to gain a good position in a company. Our workshops are not just about certificates. We aim at making each and every student capable and confident enough to excel in the corporate world. Our workshops provide an edge to the students.
Certification
The Accelerobotics workshop is certified by Hawkeye Techworks. All the participants would be getting a certificate of participation. Top performing teams will get a certificate of merit. The performance would be evaluated during the workshop through interactive sessions and competitions. The workshop coordinators will be given a certificate of appreciation.
