WELCOME

Let’s start our journey to explore the world of robotics

What Is Robotics?

Robotics is the intersection of science, engineering and technology that produces machines called robots that substitute or replicate human actions

Types Of Robots

  • Pre-programmed Robots
  • Humanoid Robots
  • Autonomous Robots
  • Teleoperated Robots
  • Augmenting Robots

Pre-programmed Robots

Pre- programmed robots operate in a controlled environment where they do simple and monotonous tasks. An example of a preprogrammed robot would be a mechanical arm on an automotive assembly line

Humanoid Robots

A humanoid robot is a robot with its body shape built to resemble the human body. The design may be for functional purposes, such as interacting with human tools and environments, for experimental purposes, such as the study of bipedal locomotion.

Some humanoid robots also have heads designed to replicate human facial features such as eyes and mouths.

Autonomous Robots

A humanoid robot is a robot with its body shape built to resemble the human body. The design may be for functional purposes, such as interacting with human tools and environments, for experimental purposes, such as the study of bipedal locomotion.

Some humanoid robots also have heads designed to replicate human facial features such as eyes and mouths.

Teleoperated Robots

Tele-operated robots are remotely controlled robots. they might have some sort of intelligence , but normally they take their command from a human operator and execute exactly as instructed. Right now, tele-operated robots are mostly used in medical surgeries and military operations.

Augmenting Robots

Augmenting robots generally enhance capabilities that a person has or replace the abilities that a person has lost. The most common example of an augmenting medical device would be a prosthetic limp. or bionic arm

Introduction to Robochip

This is SPACE Robochip. You will be learning to code and build robots virtually using this chip in our internship program.

The Space Robochip is a microcontroller which has 7 digital pins. The Pin 0 is also considered as the transmitter pin (Tx) and Pin 1 is also considered as receiver pin (Rx).

Playing with LED

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it.

In this experiment we will connect the positive end to digital pin 6 of our microcontroller board. As well as we will connect the negative pin of LED to GND of our microcontroller board.

 

Positive(+) to Digital Pin 6

Negative(-) to GND 

Types Of Robots

  • Pre-programmed Robots
  • Humanoid Robots
  • Autonomous Robots
  • Teleoperated Robots
  • Augmenting Robots

Ultrasonic Sensor

An ultrasonic sensor is an electronic device that measures the distance of a target object by emitting ultrasonic sound waves.Usually a normal ultrasonic sensor will have 4 pins.

In order to generate the ultrasound we need to set the Trigger Pin on a High State for 10 microseconds. That will send out an 8 cycle sonic burst which will travel at the speed sound and it will be received in the Echo Pin. The Echo Pin will output the time in microseconds the sound wave traveled.

 

Experiment Connections:

  • Vcc to 5V of Space Robochip 
  • Trig to Digital Pin 5 of Space Robochip
  • Echo to Digital Pin 6 of Space Robochip
  • GND to GND of Space Robochip
