Aiming to provide an intense training on Arduino tools and techniques for implementation of new innovative technical ideas into real time project, a two-day National level workshop on “Real Time Project Design Using Arduino-Tools & Techniques” was conducted at AAA College of Engineering and Technology, Sivakasi on 6-02-2010 and 7-02-2010.The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering hosted this event in Association with Centre for IIoT supported by Riyasaa Lab.For seeking the choicest blessings by kindling the lamp of knowledge and wisdom, the workshop is inaugurated with the lighting of our traditional lamp by our admirable Principal Dr.M.Sekar and our beloved Head of the Department Dr.C.Senthil Kumar.In Presidential address, Principal Dr.M.Sekar quoted that, “From the perspective of making career in Robotics/IOT, learning Arduino should be the first step”. He congratulated all the participants for being part of this workshop and requested them to utilize the two days for learning Arduino tools and techniques in depth. Dr.C.Senthil Kumar welcomed the gathering with his warm note. Dr.A.Shenbagarajan, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Mrs.K.Padmapriya, Assistant Professor, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering and Mr.M.S.Kalyanasundaram, Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering handled the two days sessions effectively by providing more hands on training to the participants in Arduino kits. The student members demonstrated their projects in Arduino techniques to the participants and motivated them to execute their innovative ideas into real time project design. Nearly 50 participants from reputed Polytechnic Colleges and Engineering colleges participated in this workshop and got benefited. Dr.C.Senthil Kumar, Head of the Department, distributed the certificates certificates to participants in the valedictory function. Dr.R.Sivasangari and Mrs.L.Krishnaveni, Coordinators made necessary arrangement for the workshop.
