ME153 - Mechatronics
Topics include computer architecture, PIC processor overview, dynamicmodeling, sensors, data acquisition,digital PID control theory, andutilization of assembly language tocode the controller. Students will design, build and test a controllerboard and present a final prototype of a control system. Engineering economics will be introduces and integrated into the final project.
To design and fabricate a small, wheeled, robot for competition in a robot sumo contest.
The design is taken through a complete prototyping cycle including:
- sketches and drawings
- CAD images
- cost reports / procurement
- circuit design
- microcontroller programming in PIC Assembly and C18
