AutoBots

Autonomous Robotics is a beginner level workshop for the students eager to learn intelligent Autonomous , microcontroller based with multiple sensor robot. It will be an opportunity to gain knowledge in the field of designing, construction, operation, and application of Robot with real time hand on practical experiences. Our practical hands on session will let the participants to grasp practical knowledge by using Special Kits designed by our team which has an immense exposure and expertise in the fields of Robotics and AI. This will lead to develop 3 different basic autonomous robots which are guided using sensors such as line follower, obstacle avoidance and edge avoidance robots.
