OverviewWe organise lectures starting from Basics of Robotics to Advanced level robotics which include hands on experience after every theory lecture.
The club organises Robotics Week to give the students an opportunity to build their own simple tasking robots within a week and compete with other teams.
Every year club organises Winter Robotics Camp in which the club aims at building some basic fundamentals regarding field such as Image processing, Matlab, Ros etc.
Line FollowerThe task is to build an autonomous robot that will follow a black line and which can also move if line is broken. It should stop when it come across a black circle..
Smartphone ExperteeDevelop a mobile application to take reading of sensors from mobile and use them to navigate robot.
Develop a robot that can communicate with smart phone over Bluetooth and take instructions to move accordingly.
Patch it UpThe task is to build a remote controlled vehicle, which will collect pieces from one place &fill the holes present in track. Complete the entire track as soon as possible..
Line SeguidorThe robot has to follow a trajectory with curves and right- angled turn. Line would be broken at any point and robot has to cross that and go to other side. There would be a loop as shown. The bot should detect the dead end and stop there
ProjectsHere lists the undergoing projects under Robotics Club. These projects are beingdone by students of different domains sharing similar interests.
Self Balancing Robot
The aim of our project is to design and implement a two wheel self-balancing robot that would bring many attributes and aspects of robots in it. A suitable microcontroller for stabilizing the robot is implemented. Two type of sensors be used to provide tilt information and encoders with motors are used to measure wheel's rotation.
Such gloves are generally fitted with special sensors to measure the bend of the fingers and equipped with a magnetic tracking system that allowed for the glove, and the hand inside it, to be followed in 3D space and the ability to handle virtual objects freely.
Special softwares are also developed in the VIEW lab to allow different gestures for specific actions and system commands such as "flying" through the virtual environment, interacting with virtual menus, or easily scaling models of virtual objects.
A hexapod robot is a mechanical vehicle that walks on six legs. Since a robot can be statically stable on three or more legs, a hexapod robot has a great deal of flexibility in how it can move. If legs become disabled, the robot may still be able to walk. Furthermore, not all of the robot's legs are needed for stability; other legs are free to reach new foot placements or manipulate a payload.
Most often, hexapods are controlled by gaits, which allow the robot to move forward, turn, and perhaps side-step. Some of the most common gaits are as follows:
Alternating tripod: 3 legs on the ground at a time.
Crawl: move just one leg at a time.
Gaits for hexapods are often stable, even in slightly rocky and uneven terrain.
Motion may also be nongaited, which means the sequence of leg motions is not fixed, but rather chosen by the computer in response to the sensed environment.This may be most helpful in very rocky terrain, but existing techniques for motion planning are computationally expensive.
All Terrain Robot
The project is to prepare a manually controlled car with a mechanical design capable of running on a rough terrain and climbing stairs of moderate step height. It also gives feedback signal of its detection of unavoidable obstacle or trench ahead. Also the control system is wireless. Control can be operated by two modes: Accelerometer mode in which user can use hand movement or Joystick mode in which user can use joystick and buttons. The remote control system also has an LCD display mounted which is menu driven and shows updates like obstacle, trench and speed of the car.
An actuator requires a control signal and a source of energy. The control signal is relatively low energy and may be electric voltage or current, pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, or even human power. The supplied main energy source may be electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure, or pneumatic pressure.
The first XBee radios were based on the IEEE 802.15.4-2003 standard designed for point-to-point and star communications at over-the-air baud rates of 250 kbit/s. Two models were initially introduced — a lower cost 1 mW XBee and the higher power 100 mW XBee-PRO. Since the initial introduction, a number of new XBee radios have been introduced and all XBees are now marketed and sold under the Digi brand.
