Gesture Based Robotics

Gesture Based Robotics (also known as Accelerometer Controlled Robotics) deals with robots which involve human-machine interaction – where a robot is a control 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. It mostly includes practical training on building robots based on gesture recognition technology, providing students a glimpse into Human Machine Interaction technologies.

Topics that we cover:

  • Understanding the working of accelerometer sensor and signal processing
  • Understanding the structure and programming of microcontrollers
  • Practical experience for a participant with DC motors, microcontrollers, sensors and accelerometers.
  • Designing and Development of Gesture-Based Robots
  • Participants are encouraged to think and come up with new designs

Course Structure:

  • Lecture by an expert trainer – 4 hours
  • Designing the Robot – 1 hour
  • Fabricating the Robot – 2 hours
