Robotics club IIT Jodhpur

Overview

We 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.

Events

Line Follower
The 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 Expertee
Develop 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 Up
The 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 Seguidor
The 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

Projects

Here 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.


Multimedia Glove

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.


Hexa Bot

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.
Quadruped.
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.


AURDINO

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board.

Atmega 16

The high-performance, low-power Atmel 8-bit AVR RISC-based microcontroller combines 16KB of programmable flash memory, 1KB SRAM, 512B EEPROM, an 8-channel 10-bit A/D converter, and a JTAG interface for on-chip debugging. The device supports throughput of 16 MIPS at 16 MHz and operates between 4.5-5.5 volts.

Ping Sensors

The SEN136B5B is an ultrasonic range finder from Seeedstudio. It detects the distance of the closest object in front of the sensor (from 3 cm up to 400 cm). It works by sending out a burst of ultrasound and listening for the echo when it bounces off of an object. It pings the obstacles with ultrasound. The Arduino or Genuino board sends a short pulse to trigger the detection, then listens for a pulse on the same pin using the pulseIn() function.

Actuators

An actuator is a component of a machine that is responsible for moving or controlling a mechanism or system.
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.

IR Sensor

An infrared sensor is an electronic device, that emits in order to sense some aspects of the surroundings. An IR sensor can measure the heat of an object as well as detects the motion.These types of sensors measures only infrared radiation, rather than emitting it that is called as a passive IR sensor. Usually in the infrared spectrum, all the objects radiate some form of thermal radiations. These types of radiations are invisible to our eyes, that can be detected by an infrared sensor.

X-Bee

XBee is the brand name of a family of form factor compatible radio modules from Digi International.
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.[4] 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.
