Robo-Tracker is a Robotics workshop about tracking the location of a robot using GPS technology. GPS tracking is one of the greatest marvels of our modern technology. GPS stands for "Global Positioning System," and this is exactly what GPS tracking allows one to do: find the location of just about anything on earth. GPS makes use of satellites by communicating with them using NMEA protocol. NMEA protocol is a protocol through which a GPS receiver & a GPS satellite communicate. As long as the GPS is receiving signal from the satellites, you can find it anywhere on earth. The workshop aims to introduce students to the field of robotics and how it is implemented in real life. It basically focuses on conceptualization and designing of a simple keypad operated robots & learn "How to track the location of the Robot?".

Our main aim is to effectively impart the basic know-how of designing a Keypad controlled robot with GPS mounted on it and provide all the necessary tools to develop it. The robot accepts the control signals from the Keypad to move the robot in forward, backward, left, right direction and to stop it. The GPS receiver allows the user to get the longitudinal and latitudinal of the robot and display it on a LCD display. It can be further developed to be employed in Vehicle Tracking, School Kid Tracking, Locating a Train, etc.

We at ABLab Solutions would get you closer to the robotics domain & GPS so that you can fulfill one of your long overdue wishes: "Making a tracking Robot".
