Introduction to Robotics and Automation

What do drones, thermostats and Wii systems have in common? They all need to take measurements from their environment and apply programmed logic in order to fly in the correct direction, keep the temperature of a room comfortable, and accurately capture your movements to win a game. Engineers across all disciplines use automation and robotics to control everyday devices, whole manufacturing plants, and the environment around us. Learn how to use a variety of sensors, build simple circuits, program Arduinos to design your own automated system, and explore other robotics hardware and software platforms.
