Description

Robotics with Electronic-  Level II

 Highlight of learning outcome:

  • Get under the hood and have a deeper understanding.

  • Learn how to do some tuning for better performance.

  • (The most complex and awesome outcome of this workshop)   Instead of using pre-existing libraries, they will create their own libraries to interfaces with motor driver,  interrupts, and a few other I2C devices. 

  • Reinforcement on topics in Level I.

  • More in communication protocols such as UART and I2C;

  • Projects utilizing Neopixel, Ultrasonic Sensor, Line following,

  • Op Amp

  • Possible more topics such as Charlieplexing, Multiplexing inputs/keypad, 4017 Counter, Shift register (SIPO)

  • Conceptual understanding H-Bridge;

  • Motions with a defined path to sensors-feedback navigation

  • Debug hardware with a logic analyzer (if time allows). 

Prerequisites:

  • MUST complete level I with satisfactory result or present proof of equivalent experience.

Description

Robotics with Electronic-  Level III

Projects Based.

Students will be given open-end projects challenge to prepare for a final contest at the end of the term. 

At the end of the term, students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their project and show off the work  in front of a panel of judges.  This also serves as a requirement for entering the more advanced level of Robotics Competition Group. . 

Prerequisites:

  • MUST complete level II with satisfactory result or present proof of equivalent experience.
