Hands-on Workshop/Training Program on “Introduction to Robotics”
Duration : 28.02.2022 to 08.03.2022 (Two Weeks)
Sources : Resources provided from USCI (Microcontroller Boards and
Necessary Electronic Components and Sensors)
Unitedworld School of Computational Intelligence (USCI) organized an inter-school technical event fully practical Hands-on Training Program on “Introduction to Robotics” in association with Unitedworld Institute of Design (UID) from 28th February to 08th March 2022 to provide a platform to explore students’ technical knowledge. The hands-on training programme is completely interactive for development and design a Mini Robot through Arduino Microcontroller along with necessary sensors and other related components.
In the first session, students got familiar with the fundamentals of design concepts, How emerging technologies involved and change the value in Design products and Introduction to Robotics conceptst etc… Informative videos were shown to students.
In the next part a brief introduction to create assembly and C through logical thinking. They got familiar with various development logical algorithm of High level and Assembly language environment. In this regard students were performed some activity like flowchart arrangements, Black box and white box sequence model and different game activities.
In the next part a brief introduction to Arduino was given the students. They got familiar with various development boards of Arduino and learnt the development environment for Arduino. Working with Arduino I/ O pin was taught and functions of various embedded components were explained. Later simple application of Arduino like blinking LED, character display through 16×2 LCD, Actuator Interfacing Concepts, Switches and Interfacing of different sensors and its coding was explained.
In the last part of the session, more applications of Arduino were explained and showed.
Students developed their own mini projects for various Interior design applications such as LED blinking, Characters Printing, Automatic Human detection and Lighting through various Sensor and Home Security Systems and finally students presented their own project module. Overall student learn the computer hardware and software fundamentals, Components of computer, digital fundamentals and data representation, algorithm and flow charts and basics of working with Arduino and gained basic knowledge of various Arduino development boards; Programming environment; onboard features of Arduino Uno microcontroller.
The main objective of this training programme was to encourage students to extend their knowledge to a professional level in computer hardware and software, designing of mini robots and to nurture their creativity and innovation on applied interior design concepts at per with present day requirements. seven groups (39 students) participated in the training. They had shared their innovative ideas by chart presentation and hardware model display.
The aim of the two-weeks training programme was to nurture the design and develop the simple prototype models Finally, they were provided with hardware controller and device to complete their tasks.
