Think of robotics and the symbol of Arduino is the first thing that pops into one’s mind. Ranging from microprocessors to CNC machines, Arduino boards seem to be taking over an increasingly large number of fields. However, a lot of us do not have more than a very basic idea about Arduino. It was with the aim of educating budding engineers about this all-important circuit board that MIT’s official robotics student project, RoboManipal, hosted Arduino Day on the 1st of April.
From the adorable Wall-E to the murderous Terminator, robots are a fascination to all of us. MIT’s very own RoboManipal live the dream by building a new robot every year, apart from the several other automation projects. We wish them the best of luck in their performance at the prestigious ABU Robocon.
