Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • Microprocessor programming
  • Mechanical parts
  • Design of a Mechatronics system that fulfils a given specification
  • Monitor and control a system by digital signals
  • Investigation of possible solutions with respect to realization, quality, cost, and design.
  • Documentation and how to make a follow up of the requirements

Intended learning outcomes *

The aim is to provide you with basic knowledge about Mechatronics systems and develop your skills in designing functional prototype from given ideas.

Furthermore, to strengthen your knowledge within the electrical field and practise working on a project

After passing the course, you should be able to:

  • Use professional methods common to engineers. This means to balance the work between theory and practise: analyse, evaluate and implement.
  • Make a specification of the requirements from oral or written information.
  • Divide the designing task in smaller tasks, which will be solved individually or together in the group.
  • Design a prototype that fulfils the requirements.
  • Apply your knowledge about microprocessors. This involves your ability to describe possibilities and limitations of the chosen hardware.
  • Apply your knowledge within digital electronics. This involves your ability to design a small interface between sensor/actuator and the microcontroller to control the mechanical system by on-off controlling.
  • Present solutions to the problem in a written report.
  • Perform an oral presentation.

Ethical approach *

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
