ENGN 1931I - Design of Robotic Systems
Designing kinetic systems (i.e., systems that require movement or motion) relies on both mechanical and electrical engineering. These systems include everything from mobile robots used for rescue operation to electrically powered moving sculptures. Through a series of projects, students combine their knowledge of electronic circuit design, sensors, actuators, motors, microcontrollers, and programming to build interactive art and robotic vehicles. Projects culminate in the design of a kinetic system that groups enter into a class-wide competition. Some programming experience is helpful but not required. Prerequisite ENGN 0040 and ENGN0520. An additional application process will be conducted before students are approved to take the course.
