HOW TO START LEARNING ROBOTICS?

INTRODUCTION 

Robotics is undoubtedly the king of all future careers. Be ready to upskill yourselves and learn robotics to shift into a new career because of the redundant skillset of yours and the removal of older functions & careers from organisations due to automation and implementation of robotics wholly into every possible realm of all industries nowadays. Near are those days when things will turn upside down pushing you to take serious initiatives towards your education, training and career building. The working plan that I have created for you to gear up for this new journey will make you future-ready.

  1. Preliminary Level Robotics Training: 

a) Coding – Learn any one programming language at least such as C, C++, Python.

b)Electronics – Learn to build simple electronic circuits and understand theoretical ideas of switches, voltage, resistors, transistors, sensors, motors, current, working of parallel and series circuits.

c) Assembling – Learn to build basic structures using plastics, fibres or wood.

d) Micro controlling – Test all of the above-mentioned things on a basic microcontroller to make your circuit react.

  1. Learner’s Level Robotics Training:

a) Object-Oriented Programming – Learn OOP to do functional & effective coding because in robotics coding is one of the most important things to make robots operational.

b) Physics – The language of Robotics uses maths such as probability, linear algebra and many concepts of physics so you need to learn and enjoy these subjects. You would not be able to do path planning without the knowledge of physics, artificial intelligence without the learnings from probability and computer vision without information on matrices.

c) Computer Skills – Learn to use the Linux Operating system as many software and packages that are developed for Robotics are disseminated using Linux for effectiveness and ease.

d) Embedded Systems – Try an implementation of all the above-mentioned creations on a mini-computer and fit sensors, cameras etc to the whole step. Do coding to move and sense this stuff.

  1. Middle-Level Robotics Training:

a) Theoretical concepts – Learn deeply about Kinematics, control & manipulation of the robotic arm, perception, computer vision, linear algebra, matrices, machine learning, probability, statistics, mathematics and artificial intelligence as they are fundamental to the core of Robotics.

b) Advanced Libraries – On python, C or C++, use advanced libraries to implement computer vision algorithms and machine learning to be able to make your future robot think, see, learn and do things.

c) Robot Operating System – To test advanced algorithms and simulations on your future robot you should learn the Robot Operating System (ROS), an excellent middleware to make your robot fly, move or pick up an object for you.

d) Computer-Aided Design – To be able to develop complex robots, learn more CAD such as 3D design software for designing robots.

  1. Advanced Level Robotics Training: 

a) Be the Expert – Keep learning and growing by going deeper into all mentioned concepts with time as they all are endless and need to be grasped thoroughly.

b) Software & Hardware – Learn as many Robots operating and developing softwares and hardware as possible. 

CONCLUSION

You can implement this 4 level program to train yourselves in Robotics either to build your own robot to win a competition like WORLD ROBOTICS CHAMPIONSHIP or to make a living out of it. You can also enrol yourselves into ROBOCLUB by TECHNOXIAN to learn everything from the start to the end as all kinds of online live practical sessions are available from thousands of Robotics experts and mentors all over the world.
