All the fun, passed all along.
SRA Talks
SRA Talks is a new initiative where we have weekly talks within the SRA Core committee. The talks will be focused on projects everyone has been working on, and the presenter could take up this opportunity to further educate peers about their field of interest.
Wall E
The Wall-E workshop focuses on the concepts of line-following and self-balancing, using ESP32, a powerful micro-controller with features like inbuilt Wi-Fi support and BLE, with extensive application in several domains like IoT, RF, etc. The workshop entails various essential concepts such as PID Control, Embedded Communication Protocols, PWM, Filters, RTOS, etc. and gives its attendees (first-year students) a general idea about the world of robotics and embedded hardware.
In the MARIO workshop freshers design and implement a robotic manipulator(4-DOF Manipulator with Gripper on ROS Based IO) using intricate concepts of forward and inverse kinematics, with Robot Operating System (ROS).
SRA conducts an online coding competition with problem statements on Data Structures and Algorithms chosen to exude the contestant’s sharp thinking.The top participants are chosen on the basis of the difficulty of the problem, and the efficacy of their solutions.
The Labyrinth challenge is set to test the algorithm development skills of the participants. The objective of this challenge is to identify and follow the shortest path in a given Black-and-white maze, using a wheeled bot to clear the course, all the while troubleshooting the hardware complications. After the conclusion of Algocon, Labyrinth serves as the perfect challenge to showcase what the participants had learnt in the form of coding skills.
Inception is an intorductory seminar conducted by SRA for the first year students to prepare them for the world of robotics and automation. It covers the basics of Electronics, IOT, Mechanics and much more and acts as prerequisite knowledge for the upcoming workshops.
Pixels is a dive into the field of Computer Vision. The workshop is designed to give the participants a basic understanding of the field of Computer Vision and its applications. It starts teaching students the very basics of Python and git, and than moves towards image processing and computer vision using the OpenCV library. Students also get to design their very own blob detection which will help track objects in videos or live camera
Dimensions is a CAD workshop focusing on SOLIDWORKS. Students are taught 3D designing, making and assembling smaller parts and essential constraints such as types of constraints, etc.
