Six Sense Robotics

Six Sense Technology is turning out to be a revolutionary technical aspect to exalt the physical world around us and let’s the user to use natural hand or eye gestures to interact with digital information. This workshop will deal with two aspects of technology robotics and image processing. The sessions will be divided in such a way that both aspects can be understood in a proper manner. Day one will cover uC applications and programming and day two will comprise of Image Processing using MATLAB and syncing both the worlds. Reputed Mentors from corporate share their knowledge during the workshop.
