Certification Course on Design of Robot using Embedded Systems

About the Course

This course is introduced to meet the growing demand for trained engineers in the field of Robotics. It provides sound, proportional knowledge in hardware as well as software development in their applications. Robotic is a course that involves design, development and operation of robots and it is an overlap of several engineering disciplines like electrical, mechanical, electronics, computer science and artificial intelligence. The students come from diverse backgrounds, but united by our common passion for robotics that will lead the future science and technology. The course contains Embedded C and Atmel Studio 6.0, I/O interfacing on AVR based microcontrollers and debugging, timers and delay generation, DC motor control and PWM generation for velocity control and Analog-to-Digital conversion and white line follower.

Course Objective:

  • To train the students through hands-on projects are imperative in producing successful innovators in the field of Robotics.
  • To provide the competitive advantage to colleges in attracting talented students.
  • To facilitate the infrastructure creation by sharing its experience and expertise.
  • To encourage to use robots to solve real life problems.

Course Outcome:

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to

  1. Create embedded systems, robotics technology and mechatronics based products.
  2. Provides platform to design, develop, program and test robots for various applications.
  3. Students can participate in national and international robotics competitions.
  4. Improve engineering projects with help of e-yantra open source community.
  5. Exposure to job opportunities in robotics.

Course Duration: 3 Months
