This workshop covers various concepts of mobile communication and microcontroller programming, necessary for the development of a mobile controlled robot. DTMF stands for “Dual tone multiple frequency”. We will be using a dedicated modem/mobile at the receiver module i.e. with the robot it self and send the commands using DTMF tones as per the required actions. Conventionally, Wireless-controlled robots use radio control, which have the drawbacks of limited working range, limited frequency range and the limited control. Use of a mobile phone for robotic control can overcome these limitations. Students would develop a robot that can be controlled by calling the mobile phone placed on the Robot and pressing the keys on their mobile phone.
Understanding of Mobile Communication and application of DTMF decoders and integration with Microcontrollers.
