Scope of robotics:

In today’s time, robots are ruling the world. There is no field left for robots to show their wonders. They have made their mark, be it the field of medicine or the field of automation. Robotics is one of the leading technologies today and is yet to flourish more and more.

Robotics not only uses hardware components and technology but also has its own software requirements. Today, Robotics is blended with Artificial Intelligence to generate human-like robots and make them more sensitive towards responding to a stimuli. “Sophia” is one such amazing robot with advanced AI features that resembles a human being by showing frequent and relevant body gestures. She is the first-ever humanoid robot and has also participated in various chat shows and interviews and impressed the audience with her witty replies. “Einstein” is another upcoming robot which will also amaze the world with its advanced features.

As mentioned earlier, robotics has widened its horizon and reached almost every field. One can expect their jobs in automation sectors, manufacturing sectors, hardware industries, aerospace fields such as ISRO, NASA, ESA and so on. With industrialization prospering, the robotics industries are also simultaneously prospering as well. They can also create jobs like robotics scientist, robotics engineer and so on. Hence, robotics indeed has a brighter future ahead undoubtedly.

How to develop a successful career in robotics?

 

Any technological skill is best improvised by practical doing. Building robotics projects makes you understand the crux of robotics. We at Skyfi Labs have resources to help you build a successful career in various latest technological domains. For robotics, we offer robotics career building online course that is purely career focused. In this course, you will gain in-depth knowledge about the latest concepts and technologies that will be useful to build your career in robotics.

In this robotics career building course, you will learn the concepts of robotics practically from basics to advanced by building numerous projects.

Below mentioned are the robotics projects that you will build in this course:

1. Line follower robot: Line follower robot is an autonomous robot, which follows a line drawn on the floor with the help of IR sensors. Arduino microcontroller is used to program the robot based on the requirement. Line follower robots find application in industries, military application, delivery, etc.
