Gesture Controlled Robotics Workshop by Edurade


Create a Gesture Controlled Robot

Gesture Control Means controlling something with your gestures like waving your hand or twisting your wrist. Similarly you can now control your robot by performing some gestures that can be recognised by the robot.

This robot will be controlled wirelessly, that means you can control it without having to be physically present with it. Also learn about the "Accelerometer", the instrument because of which you are able to play tilt controlled games on our Mobiles. You will be using the same device for giving commands to your Robot.




This workshop lets you understand the working of the Accelerometer. It is an instrument for measuring the acceleration of a moving or vibrating body


Introduction to the world of smart robotics, accelerometer, arduino, development board, DC motors, Stepper motors and their installation on the Robot Chassis.


Mentoring for mechanical calculations and selection of raw materials and sub- components, suitable l*b*h of this robot, rpm of drive motors and how to reuse in different kind of robotics event


Since each and every team will be provided with the DATA SHEETS for setting up the Accelerometer, so we will be testing each robot for the fastest and accurate movements.


Gesture Based Robotics (also known as Accelerometer Controlled Robotics) deals with robots which involve human-machine interaction - where a robot is controlled through hand movements sensed by an accelerometer. This Robotics Workshop mainly focuses on the students eager to learn about Gesture Controlled Robot using AVR Microcontroller. They will get a chance to expand their knowledge with theory of ADC (Analog to Digital Converter), Accelerometer, LCD Display and their application, with real time practical experience


Introduction To Basic Electronics

  • Introduction to the basic robotics

Introduction To Micro-Controller

  • What is Micro-controller?

  • Difference between Microcontroller and Microprocessor

  • How can we use Microcontroller in our Own Circuits?

  • Microcontroller Programming using 'Embedded C'.

Introduction to Accelerometer

  • What is Accelerometer?

Note:The components marked with (*) are not a part of the economy kit. These components would be provided during the workshop (per team) but would be taken back after the workshop. This is being done to reduce the cost of the workshop and make it affordable for students who do not want to buy the complete kit.
