Advanced Robotics for Kids | Sensor Technologies | Learn Circuits with Simulator | Algorithms & Flowcharts
Advanced Robotics Course is an intermediate level online course in robotics, sensor technologies,
Arduino projects, Snap! programming and glimpse into the world of internet of things (IOT). We
have stepped into the ‘smart’ era. Increasingly sensors are part of our daily lives – from smart TVs to
smart phones, from smart wearables to intelligent cars – sensors make our everyday lives easier.
Smart watering for your balcony garden. In our busy lives, how can we keep track of watering the plants? Well, with SenseBot, kids can monitor the moisture levels in plants by using soil moisture sensor. When moisture level drops below a threshold, an automated motor can be triggered on to pump water to the starving plants!
Smart alcohol detection to avoid ‘drunken driving’! Drunken driving is a menace, we can do without. With SenseBot, kids can create an alcohol detection module that can alert when the gas sensor senses alcohol in the close vicinity. The same sensor can also be used to monitor gas leakage.
Your kids can create the above projects and many more with this course. SenseBot comes with an Arduino Mega 2560 micro controller, a Modo customised shield, pack of nine sensors, a servo motor, a sturdy metal chassis, a pair of BO motors and wheels, and a battery pack.
Prerequisite: Kids who have completed Modo’s JumpStart course are ideal to enroll in Advanced Robotics. Or those who have completed basic robotics program using an Arduino board and a good understanding of programming tools like Scratch.
