“SixthSense ARDUINO Botz”
India’s first “SixthSense Botz” vision robotics workshop designed by team ARK . In this workshop, we have tried to interface digital world with physical world. We as an organization feel the importance of the real world. We all sit in front of computer entire day for our daily activity and one hand is busy clicking the things on the computer, then we felt to design something that can interface the real human with the computer. We humans can see the things around us, differentiate between colors then why can’t machine? And that thought leads us to design “sixthsenseBotz” All these days the participants would have used traditional sensors like IR, ultrasonic, LDR sensors etc. which were used for sensing an obstacle or light, but these sensors where never able tell the robot the color of the light or the type of obstacle present in front of the robot. In this two day workshop, using a camera, the robot will be able to tell what the robot is sensing. The time has arrived to show capabilities to the world with empowering the youth of the country with non conventional workshops. So ARE YOU READY FOR THE NEXT GENERATION WORKSHOPS???????????

*What is Arduino?*
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. For processing of the images, we use a tool called as MATLAB, which is widely used in industries. In this workshop, the applications that will be taught to the participants are as mentioned below: 




Color Recognition Application
Ball following robot
Gesture controlled windows media player
Gesture controlled mouse pointer
And what your imagination………….

The course content which will be followed for the workshop is as mentioned below: 
