Mobile Controlled Robots

Mobile phones used to control and access a lot of devices such as TVs,  ACs and lot many. The concepts and the process behind using our smart phones as a remote for all smart systems can be learned and taught in much easy pattern with the use of robots. We will make our participants to design and develop a robot and control its working and process with the inputs from our smart phones.

Prerequisites:-

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, DTMF Module, DC geared motors, Chassis, Caster wheel, Clamp, Wheel, Screw Driver, Stud, Screw, Battery Connector with DC Jack

Concepts:-

Operating System, Logic creation, Integrated circuit, Basic of electronics, Sensors, DTMF and Motors

Summary:-

This workshop will be addressed with hands-on session in developing interesting robotic car which can be controlled using our mobile phone with the help of DTMF technology. A student will be able to come up with a machine which can be controlled by using a remote Cellphone.

Project:-

Designing, Development and Controlling of a robot from mobile phone using DTMF technology.
