• Hello, We at IIT Kanpur that provides students with a chance to design and deliver robots.

    There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

  • Last Event



    Takneek'14

    A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

  • Take a look at some of our works or get in touch to discuss how we can help you.

    If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

  • Here you can learn the concepts of Robotics. No prior experience required, Enthusiasm is all we need.

    Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.

About Us

This is what we are.

The Robotics Club of IIT Kanpur is a fraternity, not just a group but a faction of such students whose passions dwell in beholding wires and metal beget a machine that has a brain of its own. It's here, that seeds of lecturing are sown by those experienced and erudite, nurtured by the interested and novice , pruned by minute yet unprecedented errors and harvested in competitions all over India. The Club offers indispensible guidance, workshops and tutorials along with tools, equipments, components and workspace. The family meets periodically to discuss over matters such as the management of the workspace, workshops, projects and competitions. We welcome anyone, with or without prior knowledge, who wishes to be a part of this fraternity. There are no pre-requisites to join because we have members that believe in the transfer of knowledge, especially that which concerns our precious interest in Robotics.

Our Work Process.

Explore.

Exploring project ideas, thinking out of the box, innovation is what we are good at.

Design.

Designing our projects for optimum working and working on details makes us look different.

Develop.

Constructing the robot, doing trial runs, minimizing the human errors.

Deliver.

And finally delivering the robot to the club and to IITK junta.

A tutorial is a method of transferring knowledge and may be used as a part of a learning process. More interactive and specific than a book or a lecture; a tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task.

Takneek'12 Lectures

Embedded Systems

Embedded Systems is a good tutorial to learn the basics of microcontroller programming.

Introduction to ROS (Robot Operating System)

Programming for Robots becomes difficult as the scale of robotics grows. Different types of robots can have wildly varying hardware and structure. So, Calibration, Integratin and Debugging becomes a challenging task. Here come the role of ROS.
ROS (Robot Operating System) provides libraries and tools to help you create robot applications and Softwares.

Datasheets

These are the links for the datasheets of different ICs.

DTMF

This tutorial teaches the use of mobile phones to wirelessly control bots.

Image Processing

This tutorial teaches elementary image processing.

Sample Codes

These are the sample codes that can be used to understand the basic principles of robotics programming.

PID

This tutorial teaches the PID method for line following bots.

Frequently Asked Questions

Clear your doubts.

Who can join the club?

Students from any batch or branch, stydying in IIT Kanpur, who has interest in robotics, is free to be a part of the club activities.

How to join the club?

There is no official way to join the club. Just attend lectures and participate to be a part of the club.

What are the prerequisites to join the club?

No prerequisite as such. Just be enthusiastic and sincere to join the club.

Where to find the resources to learn robotics?

Attend lectures and refer to the tutorial section in the club website for datasheets , eBooks and links. If still any doubt persists then “google it”.

What if I miss any of the lecture?

Nothing to worry about, just contact the secretary in your respective halls and do attend lectures in future.

We don’t have laptops in first year so how do we program our bot?

The basic programming is done in C, so you can write the logic of the program in main cc in a .txt file and then contact the secretary in your hall to get it finalised to be programmed into your bot.

How are the components issued in the club?

Just contact the resource manager secretary and fill the ‘component issuing form’ being set as home page of chrome browser in the club’s computer (you can alse find the link to this form on the sidebar). You may have to submit caution money.

In what ways can I be penalised by the club?

See Rules and Regulations.

I want to work in club. How can I do it?

Contact any of the secretaries, he/she will provide you with the keys of the club so that you can work there. Storage room is out-of-bounds, so you will have to get your components issued before-hand.

I have a new idea to work on. How can I go ahead with the idea?

Prepare an abstract describing the idea and its possible implementation. Present the abstract to the club co-ordinators.
