Level one : One day Hands On Computer controlled Robotics workshop

Objective :
  • Hands on robot making and controlling it from Computer. Enthusing students to continue working in Robotics, take part in competitions, keep doing projects.

The students will get complete hands on to.


  • Make a mobile differential drive robot from scratch and learn basics of robot making
  • Use electronic components to drive the robot
  • Connect the robot to the computer and control the robot from computers
  • Program the robot to do different functionalities autonomously
  • Students can work using the kit after the workshop and use the components for other projects
  • The workshop is to the point and hands on.

Components along with the Kit :

  • PCB circuits board
  • Electronic ICs for the motor driver
  • Port connector
  • Port control cable to activate the robot
  • Battier and battery holder
  • Wire stripper
  • Screw driver
  • Misc materials for robot making
