This course provides comprehensive instruction in the design and implementation of mechatronic systems with a focus on hands-on learning through laboratory experiments and project exercises. Primary topics covered are mechatronic systems architecture, microcontrollers, sensors, actuators, instrumentation, communication and control. Weekly lab exercises contain structured mechatronic experiments that lead into projects milestones. Students work in teams on the final project, in which they design program a mechatronic device to perform in an end-of-term competition.
