ROBO 1650 Electromechanics (2L,2LB,3CR):
The course will examine mechanical devices used in motion control. The emphasis will be on gear, belt and chain drives as well as simple transmissions. Students will also learn about DC and AC motors and motor control circuits used with these mechanical systems. Prerequisite: completion of concurrent enrollment in MATH 0920 or permission of the instructor.
ROBO 2580 LabView (2L,2CR):
Students will learn how to use the LabView environment to simulate and control an automated process or motion control system. Prerequisite: completion or concurrent enrollment in MATH 0930 or permission of the instructor.
ROBO 2590 Motion Control (2L,2LB,3CR):
Controlling robots to perform various tasks using wireless and autonomous control based on sensor input. The course will examine mechanical motion, a variety of sensors and communications used in controlling robots. Prerequisite: COSC 1030 and ROBO 1610, or permission of the instructor.
ROBO 2595 Robot Systems (2L,4LB,4CR):
Students will learn how robot control must be integrated with other aspects of the control system. The course will use robot simulation software to design control systems for a variety of applications Prerequisite: completion of ROBO 1616 and ROBO 2580 or permission of the instructor.
ROBO 2616 Robot Construction (4LB,2CR):
Advanced class in robotics. Students will be working on complex projects in designing, building, and programming a robot. Students will gain advanced experience in fabrication, electronics, computer programming, physics, and teamwork.
ROBO 2980 Cooperative Work Experience (1-8CR) (Max 8):
On the job training with an industrial automation, robotics, industrial maintenance, fabrication or service facility. Eighty hours of work per semester earns one hour of credit.
ROBO 2990 Special Topics in Automation and Robotics (2L,4LB,4CR):
Robotics majors who have completed the introductory courses may be permitted to contract with the instructor for special advanced problems in robotic applications to be pursued as independent study.
