Course DescriptionThis course provides applied learning in inventing and programming mobile robotic devices (e.g., cell phones, drones) with embedded or electronic systems. Students engage in hands-on mobile robotic device embedded systems applications and invention through the planning and execution of mobile robotic device systems development,facilitated with mobile robotic kits for embedded system development. This course also provides project management process flow-throughs on planning and executing mobile robotics and embedded systems devices.
Sample Course Outline
Previous experience with C is strongly recommended. In lieu of this experience, knowledge of object-oriented languages, such as C# or C++, would also be helpful.
This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
