SolarBOTICS | Solar Robotics and B.E.A.M

Workshop based on Solar Robotics and B.E.A.M.

This Solar-Robot is a capable little robot, powered entirely by solar energy, has light-sensing directional optics (eyes) and a pair of obstacle avoiding sensors. A pair of infrared detectors on the robot gives it a directed phototropic or light-seeking behavior, making it trace outlines around shadows and be attracted to the source of light, where it is the brightest..SolarBOTICS Workshop is divided into 4 sessions.

Why Us?

This workshop will be beneficial for students in following ways:
o students will able to visualize and create innovative designs using renewable energy in the field of robotics and science.
o Students will understand the working of various Solar Engines such as Miller, Zener & FLED and how to use in real world applications. o Hands-on session along with Theory sessions step by step.
o They learn how to choose various component values optimally while designing circuits.
o We provide them guidance on how to choose electronic components, Solar Panels, so that they are able to satisfy the requirements of their systems with as less complexity as possible.
o We are providing them a general purpose kit with which they can make any kind of robot they desire to make. And this will help them in technical festivals where they don't need to make circuit from scratch because it may take long time. They can assemble our kit and start using it for their own purpose.
o Faculty and expert from Industries.
o We provide them future help and guidance for participating in competitions and these competitions makes them skillful and enhance their practical knowledge towards which we are gonna make our first step.
o Also the workshop doesn't end up then and there. They can contact the concerned faculties throughout their graduation or thereafter also if they need any guidance regarding industrial Projects and Placements.


The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days, with eight hour session each day in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hands on sessions


A 'Certificate of Participation' by HoriZON (An Unit of MBS Group) to all Participants of this workshop. At the end of this workshop, a small competition will be organized among the participating students and winners will be awarded with a 'Certificate of Merit'.


It's a basic level workshop so there are no prerequisites. Any one interested, can join this workshop.


Rs. 1350/- (inclusive of all Taxes) per participant
*Free Solar Engine Based Robotics Kit
All the Participating teams will get a 'Free Solar Engine Based Robotics kit'.
