Embedded Robotics

About Workshop

The system in which dedicated purpose of software is embedded into a hardware design is known as embedded system. This system may be either an independent system or a larger system. The software usually gets embedded into memory modules as ROM, and it does not need any secondary memory as in a computer. Telecom, smart cards, missiles, computer networking, digital consumer electronics and satellites are some of the embedded systems applications.

The Workshop will primarily contain the following topics :

  • Linefollower:

    A robot working on a very simple logic working with the help of a well programmed mobile machine that can follow a black line on white surface or vice versa.

  • Obstacle Avoider

    The Robot will avoid the obstacles that comes in it’s path and acts in it’s preprogrammed behaviour.

  • Edge Detector
  • Light Follower


  • The workshop will be divided into two days and four sections. Each section will be of four hours.

    The first section will be the introductory section where the fundamental details about the technology will be explained to the students.

    In Second section we will provide them the minute details of the technology that we are going to work upon and provide them the kit to work.

    Third section will be focussed upon completing the project and understanding the errors that one can make while working on the project practically.

    In the fourth section the particiants will compete against one another and the best robots will be rewarded with prizes. All the participants will be given certificates.
