Let’s Build Robots at

Yesterday, I gave a talk at about robotics and how you can build your own robot using open source hardware like Arduino.

About is a Free and Open Source Software event, which happens annually.

Following is the actual quote from the website

FOSS.IN is one of the world’s largest Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) events, held annually in India since 2001 (when it was known as Linux Bangalore). The event is highly focused on FOSS development and contribution. Over the years, it has attracted thousands of participants, and the speaker roster reads like a “Who’s Who” of FOSS contributors from across the world.


I have uploaded the slides that I used for my talk to my slideshare account. You can download the slides or view them below. You can also checkout my other presentations and slides from my talks page.


I demoed the AsimiJS project that I created using node.js and Arduino, which allows anyone in the internet to control the Arduino bot. The entire source code is available at github.


One of the specialties of is the hackerspace, where like minded people gather together and hack. I am going to enhance the bot by adding additional machine learning algorithm into the bot to make it fully autonomous. If you are attending, make sure you drop by our desk at hackerspace.
