Why Do We Need a Specialized Training Program for Robotics?
The robotic engineering is primarily a combination of three major fields of engineering, which includes mechanical, electrical, and electronics, and computer science and in order for anyone to build a robot he / she needs the basic training and support from all these three disciplines. A robotic inventor needs technical support from all these disciplines and a methodical approach to develop a flawless and cost effective quality prototype. To address all these challenges and to support our young innovators, we (at CRID USA) have developed a methodical approach and a framework for rapid prototype development. It is the best opportunity for a robotic enthusiast to train himself/herself up covering the basics of all these three core-engineering programs.
Our Approaches at a Glance
- Brainstorm first then sketch
- Design before you develop
- Review your design before you build
- Test and document
Importance of Methodical Approach & Semi Formal Training
We are building a total platform to support the innovators so that they can focus on their innovations. In our opinion, the most important piece needed for an inventor is the knowledge support in a methodical manner and to address the need, we came up with the concept of semi-formal training program for the inventors. Our training program is designed strictly from the concept of need to know basis, which means we will only teach the inventor whatever they need to learn to build their robots. Other words it is a to the point learning system, for example we will not ask an inventor to study laws of physics unless it is necessary for them for their respective projects. We want them to stick to their passion and that is why we are working on developing a one-stop service for all their needs.
