Did you miss the Self Balancing Robot workshop at IIT-Bombay Techfest? Well, here is your second opportunity to experience and build robots that defy gravity!!! RoboNexG 2012, MSRIT in association with Li2-Innovations (P) Ltd. presents for the first time an unique workshop on two wheeled Self Balancing Robot.
This workshop is for those robotics enthusiasts who want to accomplish the impossible. Li2 Self Balancing Robot achieves, in two days, what humans take two years to achieve!!! This workshop gives an in-depth knowledge on design, construction and programming concepts involved in building an autonomous balancing robot.
The self balancing robot is constructed on a laser cut metallic and acrylic chassis fitted with two wheels and high precision motors. The advanced controller board is equipped with PWM channels and customized inputs for motion sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes. The closed loop PID control enables one to precisely trigger the actuators at specific intervals and achieve a smooth balance. This robot is a first step in building two wheeled transport vehicles through concepts such as gyro-stabilization, center of mass and sensor output filtering. The concepts covered in the workshop lay the much required foundation to design and construct humanoid robots and exoskeletons.
This is the first time that li2 innovations is conducting this workshop outside the IITs. Do not miss this exciting opportunity to learn what it takes to build a self balancing robot from scratch.
The key feature and concepts covered in the workshop are:
Architecture of 8 Bit Microcontrollers
Analog to Digital Conversion
Using Timers and Interrupts
Motor Drivers and its internal architecture
Dual Motor Direction Control
Pulse Width Modulation
Proportional-Integral-Derivative [PID] Control
DOF and center of gravity concepts
Real time robot motion simulation
Working of two wheeled balancing robot
