Day 1 (Session 1)

 Introduction to Robotics
 Basics of Robot Electronics:
  • Basic Electronic Components
  • Sensors
  • Operational Amplifier
  • Interfacing of Sensors
  • Motors and Controlling Circuit
  • Interfacing of Motors
 Introduction to Microcontrollers
This session would deal with the basics of Microcontroller. The focus will be on the AVR series micro controller- ATMega8, which is one of the most powerful and widely used 8 bit micro controller.
  • What is Microcontroller?
  • Difference between Microcontroller and Microprocessor.
  • How can we use Microcontroller in our Own Circuits?
 Introduction to Programming Languages
  • Microcontroller Programming using ‘Embedded C’.

Day 1 (Session 2)

 Introduction to Computer Vision And MATLAB
  • Basics of image processing
  • Algorithms used for image processing
  • Image formats
  • Complexity of Algorithms
  • Color Space requirements
  • Relation between RGB and HSV
 Digital Image Processing in MATLAB
  • Introducing MATLAB
  • Image acquisition Toolbox in MATLAB
  • Image Processing Toolbox in MATLAB
  • Tools of Image processing in MATLAB
  • Programming paradigms in MATLAB
  • Image acquisition in MATLAB
  • Camera Selection
  • Algorithm Designing
 Image Acquisition and Processing
  • Functions for Image acquisition
  • Functions and Keywords for image processing in MATLAB
  • Hardware interfacing
 Installation of Software and Debugging
  • Writing your First ‘Embedded C’ Program in AVR Studio.
  • Program Compilation and Debugging.
  • Loading Compiled ‘C’ Program into Microcontroller using Robosapiens ‘AVR BOOTFlasher v1.0 Beta’

Day 2 (Session 3)

Image Manipulation in MATLAB
  • Image Manipulation
  • Threshold adjustment
  • Template matching
  • Shape Detection
  • Object Detection
  • Motion Detection
 Assembling the DIY kit of Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0
Assembling plays a major role that deals with the mechanical section of Robotics including mounting of components and mechanical stability.
 Development of Line Following Robot using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0
As the name suggests, Line Follower Robot is well programmed mobile machine that can follow a path visible like Black Line on White Surface or vice versa. A simple fuzzy logic will do the job of maneuvering the robot according to the Line Following Algorithm.
 Development of GUI Switch Controlled Robot using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0
GUI Switch Controlled Robot is based on the MATLAB GUI Tool that helps in controlling the robot using the serial port interfacing of PC and the Robot.
 Development of Laser Controlled Robot using Robosapiens iBOT Mini V3.0
Laser Controlled Robot is well programmed mobile machine that can be controlled wirelessly according to direction of the laser ray using the most sensible viewing organ of the robot i.e. Camera.

Day 2 (Session 4)

 Zonal Competition
After the hand on theory and practical experience from the workshop, Zonal Round Competition will be conducted for the participants.
