Day 1 (Session 2)
Introduction to Microcontrollers
This session would deal with the basics of Microcontroller. The focus will be on the PIC series micro controller- PIC16FXXX, which is one of the most powerful and widely used 8 bit micro controller.
What is Microcontroller?
Difference between Microcontroller and Microprocessor.
Microcontroller Architecture and Interfacing.
How can we use Microcontroller in our Own Circuits?
Introduction to Programming Languages
Programming Languages- Assembly vs Embedded C.
Microcontroller Programming using ’Embedded C’.
Discussion on Different Algorithms
Line Following Robot Algorithms
Edge Avoiding Robot Algorithm
Obstacle Avoider Robot Algorithm
Wall Following Robot Algorithm
Sound Operated Robot Algorithm
Light Searching Robot Algorithm
Installation of Software and Debugging
Writing your First ’Embedded C’ Program in MPlab IDE.
Program Compilation and Debugging.
Loading Compiled ’C’ Program into Microcontroller.
Day 2 (Session 3)
Assembling the PIC DIY kit
Assembling plays a major role that deals with the mechanical section of Robotics including mounting of components and mechanical stability.
Generating different LED Patterns using PIC DIY Kit
Development of Line Following Robot using PIC DIY Kit
As the name suggests, Line Follower Robot is well programmed mobile machine that can follow a path visible like Black Line on White Surface or vice versa. A simple fuzzy logic will do the job of maneuvering the robot according to the Line Following Algorithm discussed in session 2.
Development of Edge Avoiding Robot using PIC DIY Kit
Edge Avoiding Robot is a mobile machine that senses the presence & absence of surface below it and avoids the absence of the surface using the Edge Avoiding Algorithm discussed in session 2.
Day 2 (Session 4)
 Zonal Competition
After the hand on theory and practical experience from the workshop, Zonal Round Competition will be conducted for the participants.
Certificate Distribution
On behalf of Embedded Design Locomotive Certificate of Merit will be provided to all Zonal Round Winners and Certificate of Participation will be provided to all the Zonal Round Participants (Excluding Merit Participants).
