School Robotics Workshop

BRiCSLAB conducted school level Robotics workshop in many different school from rural areas to urban areas.Project Nankari(a small suburban area) was the major step in upbringing this group.
BRiCSLAB with its team members Abhishek Singh, Ankita Singh, Manoj Kr Yadav, Kirti, Vijay had begun its journey from there, which lies in suburbs of IIT Kanpur.The schools which were covered were are as follows: 

G.P.Public School,Nankari


Swami Vivekananda Vidhalaya , Village Lodhar

Path Follower

Microcontroller loaded Path Follower"Tweety Bot"

Tweety Bot is simply an advanced version of a Line Follower Robot. It consists of two major
(1) Hardware ( includes the sensors and driving mechanisms )
(2) Software ( path following and grid solving algorithm )
The Hardware of Tweety bot:
The hardware of the tweety bot plays a vital role in functionality of the robot. It should be capable of
providing accurate information to the “brain” of the tweety bot and should be efficient in executing
the decisions made by it. The hardware includes:
(a) An array of Sensors
(b) Motors for driving the mouse
(c) The Brain of the mouse(microcontroller)
(d) Power Supply for the entire system

As shown in the image the bot is having 4 injections with 4 compass attached to it.These compass have 4 pencils with attached sensors at the tip of it.
This mechanism is used to provide flexibility in design and control.
Injection provide linear changes and compass provide angular changes.
These modifications is used to judge the turns of the road easily.


Dual Shaft Motor operated Biped Robot  

This is a very simple Robot for beginners to understand the practical knowledge of mechanism and basic electronics.All the parts of biped robot are plug 'n' play type using the designing software like Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop, Pro/Engineer ...that means you get all the parts individually for eg. hand, legs. body, motor, nuts, spacers etc.All you have to do is simply fix it as according to the instructable manual provided along with the Biped Robot.....And then Yipee!!!
