Introducttion to robotics and microcontrollers

  1. 1. Name: Raja Sekar.GRoll No: 41
  2. 2.  A general overview of what robots are, and the essential components embedded within Relevant examples of microcontroller and robot applications to help the participants understand contexts and applications of these technologies Contextual understanding makes it easier to relate programming efforts to basic science, math, or engineering concepts
  3. 3.  A microcontroller is a kind of miniature computer that found in all kinds of gizmos Generally speaking, if a device has buttons and a digital display, chances are it also has a programmable microcontroller brain.
  4. 4. Microcontrollers are single chipcomputers specifically designed to: ◦ Read input devices, such as buttons and sensors ◦ Process data or information ◦ Control output devices, such as lights, displays, motors and speakers
  5. 5.  The BASIC Stamp 2 embeds a microcontroller, the PIC16C57, on a module to make programming and use very simple, yet very powerful. Additional components on the module provide everything needed to systems and applications, like robotics.
  6. 6. Serial SignalConditioningConditions voltagesignals between PC serialconnection (+/- 12V) andBASIC Stamp (5V) for 5V RegulatorProgramming. Regulates voltage to 5V with a supply ofEEPROM 5.5VDC to 15VDCStores the yourPBASIC program. Resonator Sets the speed at which instructions are processed.Interpreter ChipReads the BASICprogram from theEEPROM and executesthe instructions.
  7. 7.  A robot is a machine that gathers information about its environment (senses) and uses that information (thinks) to follow instructions to do work (acts) ◦ The “sensing” part provides input to the robot through switches, light sensors, ◦ The thinking part is the microcontroller brain ◦ The acting part could be through lights, motors, actuators, sounds, etc
  8. 8.  Robots come in many shapes and sizes 1. Ka w 2. Fa adas HRP- nuc A 3P hu rcMat speed e 100 manoid rob weldin i o 3. MI NI-RO g and precision, h t BO T R cutting igh- Sandi ESEA robot 4. Mi a Nati RCH — ni-rob onal L abora the blo ot that can tories odstre travel am throug h

  10. 10.  Robotics requires a basic understanding of electricity and simple wiring diagrams The relationship between current, voltage and resistance is expressed by what is known as Ohm’s Law, variations of which are expressed below: V = IR; I = V/R; R = V/I R +V I R + - V
  11. 11.  Simple programming to cause Boe-Bot to perform basic tasks Adding input and output circuits Making sounds Measuring and calculating ◦ Distances ◦ Angles ◦ Speed ◦ Rotation
  12. 12.  Acceleration Tilt and tilt angle Incline Rotation Vibration Collision Gravity
  13. 13.  Sensing and measurements Signal Conditioning Data logging Graphical analyses Feedback continuous control
  14. 14.  Parallax Educational Resources ◦ http://www.parallax.com/html_pages/edu/index.asp What is a Robot?
