- Tech Institute Lecture Room 5 - TuTh 12:30PM - 1:50PM
- Introduction to microprocessor controlled electromechanical systems. Interfacing sensors and actuators to computers, electrical and mechanical prototyping, dissection of commercial product. Final team project.
This course is taken by engineering and computer science students interested in the design of microprocessor-controlled electromechanical systems.
Introduction to the design of microprocessor-controlled electromechanical systems. Interfacing sensors and actuators to a personal computer and a single-board computer. Electrical and mechanical design, prototyping, and construction. Dissection of a commercial mechatronic product. Students work in teams to produce final computer-controlled electromechanical projects of their own design.
