Hexapod Walking Robot

Robotics is a fascinating field of technology. Robots are being used to perform special tasks where it will be difficult for people. Designing a robot with specific features that aid the efficiency at work became a trend in the field. Engineers started making robots inspired by creatures to mimic certain abilities of them. Similarly inspired by insects our team engineered a hexapod robot. A robot that walk on six legs.

This hexapod robot workshop is designed to provide a complete hands on experience to the participants on building a hexapod 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:

Introduction to Robotics
Application of Robotics
