This course provides an introduction to integrated hardware/software solutions in computational systems with sensing and actuation. Today, devices including microwave ovens, VCRs, high-speed trains, automobiles, cochlear implants, and artificial limbs routinely employ a variety of embedded microcontrollers for process control. We will explore the concepts fundamental to these applications while designing and building our own robot controllers.
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
This is a very hands-on class: every student will be involved in the design, implementation, and programming for the laboratory exercises. Note that this component of the class will involve a non-trivial amount of time; students should plan their schedules accordingly.
