Use your imagination and reason to make robots that perform a wide range of tasks. Robotics at the basics is nothing but, replicating the human chain of thought and intelligence in a practical manner.

Learn how to use the worldwide famous Arduino platform. In this course, you will learn to code in the Arduino programming language.

Robotics as a career option is very lucrative and exciting, this would be the right course to do, if you plan on pursuing robotics or even if it interests you a little bit.

By the end of the course, you will be able to design robots such as Line-follower, Obstacle Avoider, Phototropic and Mobile-controlled robot followed by a competition between the participants.

Advanced robots (e.g. Robotic Arm controlled by servo motors) will be covered for Engineering students.
