It is an initiative by IIT Bombay that aims to create the next generation of embedded systems and robotic engineers with a practical outlook to help and provide practical solutions to some of the real world problems.
e-yantra is sponsored by MHRD under the National Mission on Education through ICT program.
There are four main functions under e-yantra program:
- e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC): which is a unique annual competition for undergraduate students in science and engineering. Selected teams are given a robotic kit, complete with accessories and video tutorials to help them learn basic concepts in embedded systems and programming.
- e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI): It is a college level program under which colleges are encouraged to setup robotics labs. Our e-yantra lab is also established under this initiative and SKIT is first college in Rajasthan in which e-yantra lab is established.
- e-Yantra Symposium(eYS): It is an annual event at IIT-Bombay -- to bring together colleges which have set up robotics labs through the e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI).
- e-Yantra Resource Development Center (eYRDC): is a portal designed exclusively for eLSI colleges through which they share resources for teachers to help them use their e-Yantra labs in an effective manner.
SKIT has setup e-yantra embedded systems and robotics lab in September, 2016 with the support of e -yantra, IIT Bombay. This laboratory will prove helpful to students of all branches who want to learn basics of robotics and its programming and convert their practical knowledge into innovative ideas and products. This lab runs under robotics club in collaboration with embedded club.
Objectives of the Lab:
To spread awareness regarding robotics among the students and to create a competitive industry required robotics skill sets in them.
To support and guide students in various aspects related to robotics and embedded; in particular, mechanical design and automation.
To provide practical knowledge of ATmega 2560 microcontrollers to students.
Syllabus for Lab Classes:
Introduction to Embedded C, digital logic and AVR Studio 4.17.
I/O interfacing on AVR based microcontrollers.
Interfacing LCD for debugging.
Introduction to timers and delay generation.
DC motor control and PWM generation for velocity control.
Analog –to- Digital conversion.
White line follower robot.
