Hi,

I am a beginner to robotics... I and my team are planning to build a robot with basic locomotion, basic vision(to avoid obstacles while moving) and if possible even a basic arm... I will take care of the programing and math part. Our time limit is nearly 1 year.

Generally what programing language is used for making robots like i mentioned above? and the duration required for to do it??

Hi and welcome to the forum :)

What controller are you using? For a robot like this, if possible you would want some sort of computer onboard to do all the power-hungry stuff, such as processing the camera.

If you use a windows computer, I would suggest Visual BASIC .NET, as it is very easy to learn and quite powerful.

As for the duration required, that depends on how good your coding is ;)

I would say (Anyone else feel free to correct me here), probably a few weeks of coding, followed by about a week or two of fine tuning and bug fixing.
