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.
This year you will have a choice between two projects
Outdoor robot to remotely locate and identify RF beacon - Design an outdoor robot capable of navigating a given, unobstructed area to remotely locate a RF beacon that has an identifier encoded via Frequency-shift keying (FSK). Location of the beacon will be computed as longitude and latitude along with a metric of error, and the beacon's identity will be decoded. Details are in the Introductory Presentation
An autonomous robot must locate and extinguish, without touching, four lit candles within 3 minutes. Rules to be followed are the same as the ones for the Fire Fighting Challenge by RoboRave.
