Credits:  0.5 
Prerequisite:  None
Room:  A114 
 

Course Description:  This class introduces students to the world of electronics and robotics.  Students will gain an understanding of these technologies from the ground level up.  Electronics will be studied first then the class will transition into robotics.  Electronic circuits will be emphasized in the course.  Students will have the opportunity to build a compact robot car which will be used for a contest in the class.

 

 

Electronics and Robotics 2

 
Instructor:  Troy Smith
Credits:  0.5 
Prerequisite:  Electronics and Robotics 1
Room:  A114 

Course Description:  The purpose of this course is to expose the student to a wide variety of electronic and robotic systems commonly used in the current professional setting.  Robotics 2 Students will work with the GW Basic programming language to control tabletop robots.  They will explore the concepts of pulse-width modulation to control their robots motors and use touch and ultra-sonic sensors to navigate a maze.

 

 

Electronics and Robotics 3

 
Instructor:  Troy Smith
Credits:  0.5 
Prerequisite:  Electronics and Robotics 2
Room:  A114 
 

Course Description:  The purpose of this course is to expose the student to a wide variety of electronic and robotic systems commonly used in the current professional setting.  Robotics 3 students will work with Arduino micro-controllers to create an autonomous robot guided by a program as well as a remote controlled robot controlled via student’s smartphones.  Various labs working with the Arduino platform will expose students to the breadth of applications electronics have in modern society
