Microcontrollers come in a variety and all of them differ from each other depending on various factors like complexity, the task to be performed, etc. The popular types of a microcontroller are 8051 microcontrollers, AVR microcontroller, other Advanced RISC Machines microcontrollers, PIC microcontroller. Besides these microcontrollers, several companies also manufacture microcontrollers.
It is not uncommon for us to mistake microcontroller as a microprocessor. But mind it, they both are different. A microprocessor essentially does the core processing that a device demands. It doesn’t have RAM, ROM or any other kind of peripheral on the chip although they can be provided externally as per requirements. These, unlike microcontrollers, do not perform a specific task. Applications of a microprocessor include laptops, personal computers, etc.
On the other hand, microcontrollers do contain ROM, RAM and other peripherals apart from having a CPU. These, perform a specific task as they function by receiving data through their I/O ports and then processing the received data.
One important comparison to note is that microprocessors are relatively cheaper than microcontrollers.

Having now learnt quite much about microcontrollers, we shall now be focusing on the most interesting part of this article. In this section, you will get to know about some amazing projects that you would definitely want to take up to set a good future. Once after getting associated with projects, you can learn about so many things that you would have been previously unaware of. Being a part of itself gives a chance to enhance your knowledge further and polish your experience. Projects in a way prepare you for future opportunities that you as an engineer might face. If you have any difficulties in selecting your project or anything related to the course, you can always seek help from our mentors at Skyfi Labs who are experts and will provide you with the best guidance. You can even visit our website to get transparency about what courses we offer to students.
For now, let’s have a look at all the possible projects that we have in store for you.
1. Smart energy meter using GSM: This microcontroller project helps you to build an energy-efficient device that helps you track energy usage and send it via SMS periodically. Through this project, you will get an opportunity to learn about GSM technology, Arduino architecture and electrical loads and measurement.
2. Wi-Fi Controlled Robot: In this microcontroller project, you get to build a robot that is controlled by Wi-fi and learn how it works. With such a smart application coming, this one is definitely worth trying. You will learn about various Networking concepts involved, wireless communication, working of DC motors and Arduino architecture.
3. Hexapod: This microcontroller project helps you build your own personal Hexapod Robot that can be controlled via Bluetooth. You will also learn about Robot’s locomotion, working of servo motors, wireless actuation of legged robots, the crawling strategy of hexapods and much more during the course of this project.
4. Fire Fighting Robot: As the name itself tells, this project helps you to build a fire fighting robot that works using digital IR sensors for detecting fire. As a part of this project, you will further learn about vision guided systems, and working of IR sensors.
5. Biometric Authentication: As you must have seen this latest biometric technology is used in schools, colleges and other official places for security purposes. By being a part of this microcontroller project, you get to learn how this system works and operates.
6. Sensor guided Robotics: As the name suggests, in this microcontroller project you learn to build robots that are controlled and work through the sensors fitted in them. Further, you will also learn about basics of artificial intelligence and sense recognition.
7. Voice controlled Robot: This microcontroller project helps you understand how applications like Google Assistant, Amazon Echo work. You get to build an Android App which helps you understand voice commands and control the Robot to perform tasks via Bluetooth. You also learn about the basics of speech recognition and Bluetooth communication.
8. Maze solver Robot: In this project, you get to learn how to build a robot that is basically an autonomous robot that solves maze independently by making use of IR sensors. It works as per the control of sensor signals that the Arduino microcontroller processes.
9. Swarm Robots:This microcontroller project helps you build robots that work on the principle of Artificial Swarm Intelligence between multiple blocks. It also helps in tracking information and acts as saviors in other difficult missions. There are two categories to it: Master and Slave. Master performs its own scheduled tasks while the Slave works on the signals provided.
You can always avail the facility of learning new things at Skyfi Labs. All you need to do is to go with your instincts. For any queries, write in the comment section below. Our mentors will get back to you shortly.
