Swarm Robotics

Swarm Robotics deals with the Artificial Swarm Intelligence and involves the usage of multiple Robots which coordinate among themselves to complete a mission. The Swarm robots communicate with each other wirelessly and take decisions. This workshop involves the development of autonomous swarm robots enabled with master-slave communication. The master robot controls the slave robot while performing its own task and the slave robot functions based on the signal received from the master robot (both being autonomous).

Topics that we cover:

  • Understanding Swarm Intelligence, Interfacing Sensors, Wireless Communication and Micro controller Programming
  • Understanding Machine to Machine Communication
  • Development of Autonomous Robots which send signals to communicate with each other
  • Micro controller Programming to receive signals from other Robots and behave accordingly
  • Introduction to structure and programming of micro controllers
  • Practical experience for participants with DC motors, Radio Frequency Modules, Micro controllers, Infrared Sensors, etc

Course Structure:

  • Lecture by Expert on Swarm Intelligence, Wireless Communication and Autonomous Robotics – 4 hours
  • Designing the Swarm Robot – 1 hour
  • Fabricating the Swarm Robot – 2 hours
  • Programming the Swarm Robot – 6 hours
  • Testing of Swarm Robots and Competition – 2 hours
  • Awards and Certificates – 0.5 hours
