Workshop Mobi-Botricks (9-10 Nov 2009)

Two day Workshop on GSM Controlled Robotics and Embedded System in Association with IIT Guwahati

Shri Balwant Institute of Technology (SBIT), Sonepat is going to organize a Two day Workshop on GSM Controlled Robotics and Embedded System in Association with IIT Guwahati and Robosapiens India.

This highly competitive world of today, demands that we not only learn, but transform ideas into reality. Thus, it has become mandatory to impart practical knowledge apart from academics to the young engineers of tomorrow in their formative years. This workshop will act as a supplement to all engineering courses like ‘Kinematics of Machines (KOM)’, ‘Embedded Systems and Microcontrollers (8051/8085), DTMF, being taught in various branches of Engineering as practical demonstration and/or hands-on exercise.

Topics that would be covered in workshop:

Session 1: Introduction to Basic Electronics

•Electronics Components related to mobile robotics
•How Transistors are used in practical Circuit?
•How Capacitors are used in Filter circuits?
•How can someone choose the value of Resistors and their practical use?
•What are Integrated Circuits? Which ICs are commonly used and How?
•What are Photo sensors? And more…

Session 2: Introduction to Atmel’s ATmega 8 microcontroller

•What is Microcontroller?
•Difference between microcontroller and micro processor?
•Microcontroller Architecture and interfacing
•How can we use a microcontroller in our own circuits?
•Microcontroller Programming in ‘C’
•Writing your First ‘C’ Program in AVR Studio
•Compilation and debugging
•Loading Compiled ‘C’ Program on a Microcontroller using Robosapiens ‘AVR Loader v1.0 Beta’

Session 3: DTMF decoder ICs

•What is DTMF?
•Interfacing of DTMF ICs
•Concept and Algorithms
•Testing of a DTMF Circuits

Session 4: Development of a Mobile phone Controlled Robot
•Assembling of Mobi-botricks Kit
•Programming of Atmega 8 microcontroller for Mobile control Robot
•Testing of Final Circuit
•Test run of Mobile Controlled Robot


The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days, with eight hour session each day in a total 16 hours properly divided into theory and hands-on sessions.
