CS 382 - Robotics I

Credits: 3

This course focuses integrating the foundational aspects of computer hardware and software technology used in contemporary robotics. Specifically: data acquisition, analysis, and response behaviors. Students will build a series of activities that include the use of a microcontroller - a basic programmable platform that provides students with the power to define operations of mechanical, electrical, and software systems using relatively simple commands. Throughout the course students will explore the interactions necessary for detecting environmental conditions and imitating the appropriate activity. The final project will include a simple robot that will perform activities via the web.

Prerequisites: CS 161  (CIS II), CS 374  (Computer Operating Systems) or equivalent or consent of instructor.
