It is a 4 wheeled robot. It will have bluetooth control and obstacle detection features.
Yes! The event will be conducted in the New Mukesh Patel Building.
The event will be conducted on 21st ans 22nd October, Saturday and Sunday. It will be conducted from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM on Saturday where the parts of the bot and coding will be explained and tested, and 10 AM to 5PM on Sunday, when the main bot will be built.
Yes. There will be regular breaks during the event.
No. The necessary basics will be taught on the first day of the event.
In the beginning of the event, the kits are distributed by the instructors, consisting of all the relevant items/tools/equipment required to code for and assemble the bot. Post a simple coding session, all equipment is tested on the first day. On the second day, the main bot is built as per the step-by-step directives given by the instructor with thorough testing conducted at each step.
Yes. The theory of each part is taught on the first day of the event. Moreover, A comprehensive study guide is provided.
Participants need not fulfil any prerequisites at the event, besides bringing a fully charged laptop that is compatible with and can support the Arduino IDE. A laptop is not compulsory, but recommended in order to learn to code the bot effectively.
There are presently no pre-requisites needed for BOTSON, as all basics are taught in the event, step-by-step to ensure no one is left behind.
No. The IET MPSTME specially creates a comprehensive kit containing all necessary equipment beforehand that has been checked for compatibility and quality. The kit also contains spares for any emergencies that may occur by mishandling or breakage, or any manufacturing defect.
All parts are checked thoroughly before distribution. There are only two parts in the kit with a chance of being defective. The bluetooth module and the motor driver and there will be an extra set of those parts inside the kit. Spares will be given for LEDs and wires. The instructors also possess spares in case of any accidents.
