This camp exposes students to the field of computer engineering by using technology that is currently being used for developing intelligent systems. They learn how consumer electronics, automobiles and robots are made smart by using microcontrollers embedded in these products. Students design, build and program entry-level microcontroller-based applications, such as robots, and learn how to wire sensors to the processor and implement programs to make their robot intelligent. Students also write Android apps for remotely controlling their robot. Participants receive a microcontroller kit to keep.

Program Fee:
