InvoBot – Robotics Workshop

25Sep06

invobotInvoBot – a Chennai based company, that promises to conduct workshops on robotics on a regular basis in and around the city, is kick starting this October. “Chennai has always been a hot bed for robotics, but due to the lack of mentors and specific shops for robot components, that Mumbai and Delhi enjoy, Chennai has not grown out into having its own robotics community” notes Madan, the founder of the company.

Invobot offers a range of robotics workshops for enthusiasts, amateurs and hobbyists. Our workshops are affordable with the package including a full set of componets provided by INVOBOT.

The IITs are doing their bit, by encouraging students in Southern India, by holding robotics competitions on a yearly basis, but that is not enough. We need someone to first direct these students in the right path. This is where InvoBot will come in. InvoBot offers two courses: I-Basic and I-Tech. The I-Basic is the fundamentals of robotics. It is a two day workshop, by the end of which, every participant would be holding arobot Line Following/Obstacle Detecting robot in their hand.

On the 15th of October, 2006, InvoBot will conduct its first workshop at Loyola Arts and Science College, Chennai. This workshop will be in lines with the I-Basic structure. The good part about the workshop is they not only give you a hands on session, but also provide you with a kit and 5 sets of robotics maual that you can reuse to make various other robotics. In short, let your imagination flow. the InvoBot-Kit not only includes components, but also the essential accessories like multimeter, soldering rods, bread boards etc.

Due to a mismatch in college timings all over the city, the two day workshop is spread over 2 Sundays (15th and 22nd October, 2006). Madan explains “This is actually good for us. since robotics isn’t something that can be taught over a weekend. With a gap of 6 days between the two 8 hour workshops, it is easy for the participants to reflect on what they learnt and also do a mini project that shall be assigned to them at the end of the first day (15th)”

The workshop will also cover micro-controllers and its coding. A team comprising of maximum 2 members can take part. A CD with essential softwares and a certificate of participation will be provided. The certificate will be valuable since it is also going to carry the seal of Loyola Arts and Science College.

What really excites me is the ‘Chasis building’ session, where one learns to do the mechanical part of a robot (Something which I have never managed to do. Its always cellophane tape and quick fix).

Venue : Loyola College of Arts and Science
Course : IBasic (Details)
Workshop Code : IB2L
Course-Fee : Rs. 1800 (For a team of two), Rs. 1200 (Individual)
Dates: 15th and 22nd October, 2006

InvoBot – Innovation in Robotics

UPDATE: A special option for out station participants is also available. On request they may be allowed to undergo the training at a stretch – 21st and 22nd of October, instead of 15th and 22nd, since it might be difficult for them to travel two weekends for the workshop. But I suggest you don’t exercise this option unless and until it is a must, since robotics requires time to sync. You can’t handle resistors to mechanical designing to micro controllers in 2 days. That’s like 5 semesters of engineering thrusted upon you in 2 days…

    “The certificate will be valuable since it is also going to carry the seal of Loyola Arts and Science College.”..??????

    Ha ha ha ha!!!
    Loyola and valuable?

    fine, just come and see…

  2. @Jal:
    Sure. Maybe they aren’t valuable, but with an InvoBot logo, it defi is valuable😛

  3. 3 avinash j

    do u conduct workshops outside chennai like in hyderabad in our college…….

  4. @Avinash:
    Invobot can conduct workshop anywhere (Chennai, B’lore, Hyde etc.). What matters is the collge should hire them. So if InvoBot gets a letter from your college requesting to conduct workshop there and are willing to pay their fee, then Invobot will happen there…🙂

    Hey dude…heard u started a company and all…pretty cool..its a very cool profit making venture…:D…all our clubs profits r thru the workshops weve conducted only…nice package you’ve got..only wonderin how your gonna cover so much in so little time…btw wat microcontroller u gonna be teachin??..n oh..our techfest’s robotics problem statements r out…its called pragyan n is slated for feb 1st to 4th…the robotics problem statements r up…two of them..one involving a line follower n one involving image processing…check out the site n pass it on too…its http://www.pragyan.org
    cya

  6. Hey Naresh,
    We will manage to do it all. We have rehersed it properly. We are basing the I basic course with PIC microcontrollers. I am not very sure about pragyan. Techfest (IIT B) gets over only on jan last week, then saarang… not sure I will get enough ODs for that. Lemme know about the prize money…
