Dr. Kumara Hegde, HOD of Botany, coordinator of Star college scheme graced the occasion who gave an insight into the fast development of automation in every field. The youth should get tuned with the related technologies. And it is indeed, such workshops add more knowledge in the robotics field through a participatory approach, he added.

Prof Avinash  S, Assistant Professor, Department of E and C, SDM IT, Ujire and Mr. Prashanth Kumar N, Hardware design Engineer, iWave systems Bangalore were the chief guests and resource persons

In the two days workshop, the resource persons  touched upon Basics of Aurdino programming, Blue tooth communication, IR sensors, RFID sensors, and robotics and 55 students developed basic robotic and automated devices such as LED display, blue tooth enabled cars, automated fans, bulbs, Radiofrequency devices like smart cards and fast tag, etc

In the valedictory function, Prof S N Kakathkar motivated the students to develop the concept further, through their creative ideas. He urged them to design a few projects or models which can help the society in the days to come. To be in tune with the fast-developing scenario, Robotics, and home automation can be a part of the curriculum through which all students get an insight into the field, he added.

Ms. Namratha Jain proposed a vote of thanks, Mr. Saideep welcomed and Miss Sourabha was the master of ceremony.
