e-Yantra (ROBOTIC & ES LAB)- Two Day Workshop at Matrusri Engineering

Greetings from MECS!

e-Yantra – a project in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), IIT Bombay - is a flagship project of MHRD through the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT) to spread Embedded systems and Robotics education in colleges across India. e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI) is a holistic approach to


We have scheduled a two day workshop as a part of this initiative. We invite your college to attend the workshop. Colleges will nominate 2-4 teachers who will participate in the hands on session of 2-day workshop on "Introduction to Robotics"  through the e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI).   

The Venue & Coordinator details are as below:

    To Register for 2-Day Workshop (Click Here) -->

Note : There is no registration fee to participate in the workshop.
The registrations for the workshop are on the First Come First Serve (FCFS) basis.

Colleges interested in setting-up a robotics Lab under this initiative are required to submit a Letter of Intent (LoI). The format for the Letter of Intent (LoI) is attached with the email.

Colleges who have given the Letter of Intent (LoI) are all confirmed to attend the workshop, However, colleges who have not expressed their interest in the e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI) through a formal LoI can also depute a team of 2-4 teachers for the 2-day workshop. 


What after the workshop?

1. Teams from colleges participating in eLSI by giving the LoI will participate in Task Based Training (TBT) to solve assigned tasks designed to include hands-on experiments using the robot, over a 2-3 month period. Teams participate in TBT online. No travel is required.

2. Colleges set up their labs during this 2-3 month period.

3. Certificates and 2 additional robotic kits are awarded to colleges at the end of TBT, during the valedictory function when all the labs in the region are inaugurated simultaneously.    

4.  No substitution of team members will be allowed during TBT. Teachers who are trained through the 2-day workshop will participate in TBT.

Two brief video tutorials on "Embedded C Programming basics", which will provide quick review for teachers before attending the workshop, is included in this mail.

These tutorials outline all the essential concepts which will aid the teachers to better understand the contents of the workshop. Please find their video links below:
