Workshop Details

No. of days: 2

Team Strength: 5 per team

Certification: Hawkeye Techworks

Sensor based line follower robots are autonomous robots which can follow a marked path. This is a basic robot which is very helpful in learning the concepts involved behind embedded systems and interfacing.
Some of the earliest Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) were line following mobile robots. They might follow a visual line painted or embedded in the floor or ceiling or an electrical wire in the floor. Most of these robots operated a simple "keep the line in the center sensor" algorithm. They could not circumnavigate obstacles; they just stopped and waited when something blocked their path. Many examples of such vehicles are still sold, by Transbotics, FMC, Egemin, HK Systems and many other companies.
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 Sensor Based robotics workshop. With the knowledge and experience they gather at the workshop, the students will be capable of doing not only sensor based 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 Sensor based robot 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.
