EE 382 - Introduction to Design
- Learn an approach to design, project management and team work.
- Learn to use spec sheets and design according to available
- Learn how to write technical documents and give presentations.
- Perform various case studies.
- Integrate skills learned and experiments used in previous courses into a creative design process.
Design an autonomous vehicle that is capable of navigating outdoors through specific waypoints and/or landmarks. The terrain will consist of both paved road as well as off road portions. At each waypoint there will be objects with various characteristics that your robot must identify and locate (e.g., something emitting heat, RF signal, etc.). The exact characteristics of the waypoints will be determined throughout the semester.
Each team will consist of 4-5 students. Each team will have a budget, a robotic platform, 2 H-bridges and batteries. At the end of the semester an open competition will be held. The set of waypoints will be announced the day of the competition.
