Intro to Robotics

Intro to Robotics

The objective of this course is to provide an introductory experience to the field of robotics. Included in this experience will be the engineering design process, a university-level programming language, and open-ended problem solving strategies. Students, working in small hands-on teams, will be presented with several authentic design challenges. To meet these challenges, students will design, build, and program an appropriate LEGO® EV3 robot, with National Instruments LabVIEW software. Teams will document and present their design solutions. Additional topics may include motor control, gear ratios, torque, friction, sensors, timing, program loops, logic gates, decision-making, and timing sequences. The program also lets students experience what it’s like to study and play on Illinois Tech Mies (Main) Campus.
