Electronics and Robotics II


Course Description

Electronics Technology and Robotics II provide students with the knowledge, hands-on experience, and technical skill to:
  • Demonstrate safe and appropriate use of tools, machinery, and materials in electronics technology.
  • Demonstrate the proper use of a drill press, metal lathe, band saw, milling machine, and an assortment of shop hand tools.
  • Demonstrate the proper use of electronic equipment, including a soldering iron, oscilloscope, function generator, and analog/digital trainer.
  • Use Ohm’s law and Watt’s law to analyze and experiment with resistive circuits.
  • Construct, analyze, and experiment with electronic circuits incorporating the following components: operational amplifiers, 555 timers, logic gates, PIC 16F88 microcontroller, H-bridges, and sensors including switch, resistive, IR, and ultrasonic.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of electrical schematics and electronic circuits.
  • Demonstrate the ability to use and maintain basic electronic circuits.
  • Fabricate a robotic car platform utilizing a breadboard, sensors, and gear-head motors. The robot that the students build will be theirs at the end of the course.
  • Program a PIC microcontroller in PicBasic Pro to autonomously interact with its environment. The 16F88 microcontroller is programmed in PicBasic Pro using a complier by microEngineering Labs, Inc.
  • Learning Outcomes

    The course focuses on integrated circuits, including op amps, 555 timers, logic gates, PIC16F88 microcontroller, H-bridges, and sensors. The students design and build an autonomous robotic car and use a microcontroller for control of their robotic car. Different sensors are mounted to the robotic car as they are introduced.
