Hand Gesture Robotics Workshop mainly focuses on the students eager to learn about Gesture Controlled Robot using AVR Microcontroller. They will get a chance to expand their knowledge with theory of ADC (Analog to Digital Converter), Accelerometer, LCD Display and their application, with real time practical experience.

The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days with eight hours session each day, in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hand on practical sessions. At the end of this workshop a competition will be organized among the participating students where each participating student will get Certificate of Participation and the Winners will get Certificate of Merit.

Day 1 (Session 1)

Introduction to Microcontroller

This session would deal with the basics of Microcontroller. The focus will be on the AVR series micro controller- ATMega8, which is one of the most powerful and widely used 8 bit micro controller.

  • What is Microcontroller?
  • Difference between Microcontroller and Microprocessor
  • Microcontroller Architecture and Interfacing
  • How can we use Microcontroller in our Own Circuits?
Introduction to Controlling Circuit
  • Introduction to Motor
  • Types of Motors
  • Difference between DC motor and DC geared motor
  • Motor Controlling IC (L293D)

Day 1 (Session 2)

Introduction to Programming Languages
  • Programming Languages- Assembly vs Embedded C.
  • Microcontroller Programming using 'Embedded C'.
Installation of Software and Debugging
  • Writing your First 'Embedded C' Program in AVR Studio
  • Program Compilation and Debugging
  • Loading Compiled 'C' Program into Microcontroller using Robosapiens 'AVR BOOTFlasher v1.0 Beta'
Assembling the DIY kit of Robosapiens Board

Assembling plays a major role that deals with the mechanical section of Robotics including mounting of components and mechanical stability.
