Robot is an electro-mechanical machine driven by software. It may be autonomous or remotely controlled.
Engineers who have hands-on made mechanical joints/casing, electrical supply, circuits, firmware, etc.
Companies in semiconductors, electrical components, mechanical parts, robotics etc are welcome to donate their products for non-profit purpose. Companies may also offer their meeting rooms for an hour on Sundays which is not their workday.
Please excuse: Some persons contact us after watching in movies where using robots may be glamorous & fun. Making them is not that. Actually it is a discipline testing human perseverance & challenges at every corner.
