M E 545 Mechatronics (3)
This class will facilitate hands-on investigation and learning of mechatronic systems using a problem-based approach. The course consists of lectures, lab activities, and major projects that train students to develop system-level implementations of mechatronics. This course complements and builds on the existing undergraduate-level microcomputer interfacing course, which presents model-free design of single-processor, single-sensor, single-task, and/or single actuator mechatronic systems. This course focuses on model-based design of multi-processor, multi-sensor, multi-actuator, and multi-tasking mechatronic systems. Students are expected to be familiar with systems and signals analysis including Laplace transforms, Eigenvalues, Bode plots, stability margins, basic feedback loop performance and stability analysis, etc. Students should have a firm understanding of electrical circuits and structured programming. Nearly all assignments will require the use of MATLAB and/or some C-style programming.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
