This course introduces students to robotics and engineering concepts with a focus on the analytical skills and technology associated with the theory, design, construction and application of robots. Student projects include the design, programming and construction of fully autonomous (no remote controls!) robots capable of completing complex tasks. The hands-on curriculum focuses on the use of the XBC mobile robot controller. Students program their robots using Interactive C (a version of C++ programming language). Prior computer programming experience and engineering design experience is not required for this course.
