Autonomous Robots

Robots, a programmable machine for complex automatically actions. At basic level robot can be used as a tool to learn science, technology and engineering concepts with all practical scopes. This workshop on autonomous robots will make our participants to design and develop a robot which can take its own decision to move in either direction or to take turn in a particular direction. The types of autonomous robot our students will develop are line follower robot, obstacle avoid and edge avoid robot.


Can access computer system and make use of internet to perform search over Google.

Need to Prepare?

Prior programming experience is not required.

Tools Expected:-

Windows OS based PC, Internet Connection, Notebook and Pen

Tools Provided (for the session):-

L293D Dual H-Bridge Motor Driver Board, IR sensor, DC geared motors, Chassis, Caster wheel, Clamp, Wheel, Screw Driver, Stud, Screw, Battery Connector with DC Jack


Operating System, Logic creation, Integrated circuit, Basic of electronics, Motors


This workshop will be addressed with hands-on session in developing interesting robotic car which can make its own decision using sensor input. The IR sensor will guide the robot on a black line and make it follow the defined path from start to end.
