Robotics for Beginners – Build Your 1st Robot

Arduino Programming | Sensors and Actuators | Robotics | Line Following | Obstacle Avoidance | Bluetooth Controlling

In this course we are going to teach you from the basics of robotics to building your own robot. 10-20 years ago Robots used to be only in the research institutes & factories, but nowadays robots are in common use in various applications. Even in our households, doing different tasks such as cleaning the floors.

  • Learning about robotics & its uses.
  • Learning about basic electronics, sensors & actuators.
  • Learning about wheeled robot control methods.
  • Developing practical robotics applications.
  • Learning basics about control systems.
  • Learning to use Internet of things(IoT) with robots.
  • Arduino Programming.

Requirements

In this course we are going to teach you from the basics of robotics to building your own robot. 10-20 years ago Robots used to be only in the research institutes & factories, but nowadays robots are in common use in various applications. Even in our households, doing different tasks such as cleaning the floors.

So learning robotics from early on is a great investment for the future.

We are starting all the way from basic electronics, programming and moving towards robot motion and a bit into control systems & IoT as well. These are few of the most sought after skills in the world today.

At the end we are going to teach you how to build several wheeled robots such as,

  • Line follower
  • Obstacle avoid robot
  • Bluetooth Control robot

To effectively follow the practical of this course you need to have a magicbot robot kit with a magicbit development board. But you can build your own robot as well using a generic esp32 board and external components, we will include a guide for that as well.

Course is conducted by magicbit, an STEM education company which develops hardware and software tools to enable easy access for innovation, in collaboration with Migara Amithodana, an industrial veteran with years of experience.
