Ever wondered how vast the world of robotics is?

Robotics has three major components in it. Electronics, Mechanical, and Programming.

In this course, we will learn the software part of the robotics with fun-filled and hands-on with raspberry pi.  It all starts with understanding the basics and parameters such as what is ros 2 topic, publisher, subscriber, how sensors and actuators can be interfaced and how can we provide intelligence to the robot to make it move. and so on.

Learning is not limited to understanding the chapters, we will also do experiments to understand the concepts better and build creative solutions from the concepts that we have learned. 

The course aims to teach the fundamentals of electronic circuit designing & building, also introduces multiple sensors and actuators used in real-life robots. 

Refer to the curriculum for detailed information about the course content and learning outcomes.
