Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper teaches students the basics of mechatronics with advanced theory of control and analysis. This paper covers theory of microcontrollers, state space, basic programming for obstacle avoidance, path planning and navigation of mobile robots.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

There will be 10 laboratory sessions, one per week starting from the second week, on Mondays (see labs below). Note that the laboratories are a substantial part of the workload of this paper, thus you will need to spend more than the scheduled 3-hours per week on the laboratory work. The amount of work in the laboratories is reflected in a higher percentage of the final mark given to laboratories than is typical.
