  • BEAM.
  • PC controlled.
  • Micro controller based.

 

Basics of Microcontroller

This session would deal with building autonomous robots using micro controllers. The focus will be on the AVR series micro controller ATMega16 which is one of the most powerful 8 bit micro controllers.

  • Available micro controllers and their comparison.
  • AVR series.
  • Why ATMega16 Micro controller.

 

Programming the ATMega16

  • Using I/O Ports.
  • Writing the first code.

 

Actuators
