SRA conducts two major workshops over a year with an objective to give hand-on experience to beginners so that they get into the swing of how things work and are able to build a project on their own.

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. Following are some of the highlights:

  • The custom-made SRA Development Board & ESP32
  • ESP-IDF, the official IoT Development Framework by Espressif
  • Motor Control with PWM and PID
  • Accelerometer, Gyroscope  and the Complimentary Filter
  • Communication protocols (UART, SPI, I2C)
