Introductions to Robotics: Design Laboratory

A robotics laboratory course focused on designing, programming, and testing mobile robots. The robot design problems are formulated in terms of robot performance so that students must solve electromechanical problems in an unstructured framework similar to professional engineering environments. Students develop skills in brainstorming, concept selection, spatial reasoning, teamwork and communication. Robots are controlled with microcontrollers using the C programming language, and interfaced to sensors and motors.
