Whenever we hear the word robot, we imagine a walking human like machine. Designing a robot that can walk on two legs is every young robotics enthusiast's dream. But it is not a dream anymore, as our team has put together a workshop module on "BIPED" robots. The word "bi" means "two" and "ped" means “legs”.

This workshop is designed to provide a complete hands on experience to the participants on building a biped robot using micro servo actuators. All teams participating the workshop are given training kits during the session to learn coding, robot assembly and motion planning in a practical approach.
This workshop will be conducted for 2 days (16 Hrs), with each day divided into 2 sessions.
The course content which will be followed for the workshop is as mentioned below:


  •  I   Introduction to Robotics
