“If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The Internet of Things is about to change it all over again!” – Brendan O’Brien, Chief Architect & Co-Founder, Aria Systems
MieRobot has designed this IOT Robotics project course as an opportunity for you to get introduced into low cost 'Do it yourself ' (DIY) robotics. This is also a great chance to get skilled in IOT with a certificate from Udemy.
By the end of the course, you will have created an ESP12E NodeMCU wheeled robot that can be controlled through a free Blynk mobile app and you will also be able to see the live video feed as the robot moves around. We will attach one light detecting sensor to the robot which would tell us if the robot can sense a dark or bright ambience.
But more than that, by the end of the course you will have become a better problem solver. You will have experience in analysing problems and designing solutions. You will be able to integrate simple mechanical parts with motors, batteries, sensors and Blynk applications with your mobile.This course will be updated regularly and support would be provided through QA forum.
The ideal student is someone who has basic background in C programming along with a strong interest in Internet of things and robotics. This course is suited for students, professionals, hobby makers and DIY makers.
I invite you to review the free lectures in of the course to find out more details about it.
If you are excited about becoming a Maker with the IOT Robotics, join many other Makers and me in Make an ESP12E IOT Robot!
I look forward to meeting with you!
