About this workshop:
Gesture Based Robotics (also known as Accelerometer Controlled Robotics) deals with robots which involve human-machine interaction- where a robot is controlled through hand movements. The robots take inputs from accelerometer sensor and are controlled by programmed microcontrollers.
The workshop helps participants understand the concepts and use of accelerometer sensor, microcontrollers and other electronic components used in Robotics.

Hardware kit will be collected back. Those who prefer to have takeaway learning kit need to register for it.
Considering the interest of students the charges are designed to be more flexible and affordable. Each student will be charged Rs. 1500 as training fee including various reference and guidance.
Student need to carry their own laptops and pen drive.
Certification and Ahead:
On completion of the course, certificates will be provided to all students with various prizes based on performance during entire period.
We are also willing to tag in promising talents from student community as interns in our forthcoming projects.
