INTRODUCTION

These robotics technologies are used to develop machines that can substitute for humans. Robots can
be used in any situation and for any purpose, but today many are used in dangerous environments
(including bomb detection and de-activation), manufacturing processes, or where humans cannot
survive. Robots can take on any form but some are made to resemble humans in appearance. This is
said to help in the acceptance of a robot in certain replicate behaviors usually performed by people.
Such robots attempt to replicate walking, lifting, speech cognition, and basically anything a human
can do. Many of today’s robots are inspired by nature, contributing to the field of bio-inspired
robotics.
The concept of creating machines that can operate autonomously dates back to classical times, but
research into the functionality and potential uses of robots did not grow substantially until the 20th
century. Throughout history, it has been frequently assumed that robots will one day be able to
mimic human behavior and manage tasks in a human-like fashion. Today, robotics is a rapidly
growing field, as technological advances continue; researching, designing, and building new robots
serve various practical purposes, whether domestically, commercially, or militarily. Many robots are
built to do jobs that are hazardous to people such as defusing bombs, finding survivors in unstable
ruins, and exploring mines and shipwrecks. Robotics is also used in GUIST (Science, Technology,
Engineering) as a teaching aid.

Abstract:

The robotics event report initiative of Gauhati University Institute of Science and Technology Students in
creative activities that builds motivation for their engineering studies. The GUIST Students has always
attempted to put more emphasis on hands-on learning and training for fellow students through various
workshops, events and training sessions. As a part of such activity, workshop session on basics of robots
and robotics are being conducted for the last 1 year. Participation has been from a wide range of
backgrounds, from different streams and different undergraduate levels. Initial aim of such type of event
sessions was to motivate students in design, estimation, fabrication and testing their own ideas of basic
controlled robots. During the course of events in last couple of month several interesting findings could be
identified. It is felt that in order to perform well in their workplace, as well as to be responsible citizens,
students are required to not only develop mastery of a particular subject, but civic, social, interpersonal
and workplace skills as well. In addition to reinforcing concepts from earlier and concurrent courses, such
workshops can serve as a platform for exposing students to inter-disciplinary topics that appear in greater
depth in later courses. Also, students mature in areas such as oral and written communication, awareness
of professional ethics issues, and working effectively in a team-based setting. Mixing of students from
different disciplines and different grades greatly enhances sense of fellow feeling and team spirit. Such
event, being conducted by students themselves, increases the sense of belonging, inculcates maturity,
sensibility, leadership qualities among the organizing students.

Day of Robotics Event and Club formation

On 2nd October (Gandhi Jayanti) 2018, ECE department of Gauhati University conducted a robotics event named “UDBHAV 2.0” as well as performed the inauguration of its robotics club on “Introduction to Robotics and its application for day to day life’s”. The event was conducted by 3rd year Students of GUIST. At first our respected Vice chancellor of Gauhati University, Dr. Mridul Hazarika sir talked about the event and its activities conducted in our college and presented a keynote on “Introduction to Robots and Robotics”; Second Dr. Eeshankur Saikia sir head of the department of Applied Science, presented a keynote on “Introduction to Robots and its application in our daily life; lastly Dr. Kandarpa Kumar Sarma sir head of the department of ECE, presented lamp ceremony with its valuable suggestion and appreciated the organizing team and briefed us with the uses and applications of robots. The event comprised of “Line follower Robot with theme of ‘Swach Bot’ ” using Arduino coding. Around 75 students from all the branches including 1st semester students took part in this event. In the first session students were made familiar with the term Robot and were given a problem to solve with the concept of line follower robot, were also briefed on how to identify whether a machine is a Robot or an autonomous bot, Robotics, Aspects of Robotics, philosophy of AI (Artificial Intelligence), Brief on Machine Learning and types of Robots. Informative videos from Technomate
Edubotics Private Limited were shown to students.
In the second session a brief introduction to Arduino was given to first year students. They got familiar with various development boards of Arduino and learnt the development environment for Arduino. Working with Arduino I/ O pin was taught and functions of various embedded components were explained. Later all the necessary hardware components were provided to participants.
In the third session, first stage round of the competition was completed. Out of 16 group, 6 group were abled to complete the first round and qualified for the second round of the competition. After the tea session the final round of the competition was held. Final results were declared by Mr. Achinta Saha, CEO of Technomate Edubotics Pvt. Ltd. The first prize was given to the team “Jibontro”, formed by Debalina Banerjee and Akashjyoti Banik from 7th semester, department of ECE and they have got a total point 108 out of 120. Second prize went to team “Prime movers”, formed by Suman Bhowmick, Nupur Choudhury and Chinmay Kalita from 7th semester, department of ECE and they too got 108 points. Third prize went to team “Spectrum”, formed by Vharabi Sonowal, Antu Bordoloi and Kishore Kumar Jha from 3rd semester, department of ECE and they got 107 points.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Students gained an appreciation of the effort needed in construction and had a sense of
    achievement which something they have made.
  • Students are encouraged to try their hand at assembling and modeling of Robots.
  • This is a creative approach to the learning of science through real life exposure, mechanical
    innovation and simultaneously promotes to do hands-on projects on Robots.

CONCLUSION.

  • Students learned about the robots and assembly.
  • Students will be able to participate in the Technical Festival and Robotic events organized by
    various institute. This in turn will enhance the name and fame of the Institution and will develop
    students skills.
