This advanced robotics course will help students learn and develop amazing projects, from complete beginner to pro. In the process students get to build their social, professional and technical skills which will assist them in their upcoming futures in the robotics world.
Upon completion of this course the successful student will have reliably demonstrated the ability to:
e.g. You will be able to make a circuit to turn the lights and fans in your house as soon as you enter.
e.g. You will able to write program to develop games and robots.
e.g. Students will learn how technologies like Sensors (IR, Ultrasonic, Temperature) and Motors (DC, Stepper, Servo) work and will be able to integrate them into their projects.
Sai Nalluri is a technology enthusiast with diverse experience in mechanics, electrics, biomedicine and computer science. He attended Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics Engineering. He also has many years of dynamic industry exposure. Sai has travelled across the globe to expand his horizons in artificial intelligence and control systems. He obtained his master’s degree from the University of Western Ontario in Automation and Systems Engineering and later joined the robotics industry by launching Canada’s first Automated Grocery Delivery service, Voila. Sai believes that education should be more practical and experimental than theoretical. He zealously promotes practical, engaging and prototype-oriented learning. He has created various robotics courses, designed to ignite a passion for learning and provide vital industry knowledge. With his dynamic experience in STEM education, he hopes to provide future generations with the necessary tools to succeed in a technology-driven society. Sai recognizes that product development involves strenuous effort from multiple fields of engineering. For example, body design relies on mechanical expertise, circuit boards come from electrical insight and programmed intelligence relies on computer science expertise. A base in multiple fields can therefore make you more efficient and productive in your career. Sai argues that robotics is the only field that can provide such diverse knowledge. He considers robotics to be a great career choice for anyone. His advice? Stay hungry for knowledge because necessity is the mother of invention.
