Actuators, Drivers and Electronic Modules

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Students who complete the module should have knowledge about the various building blocks comprising an embedded/robotic control system. The acquired knowledge should be applicable for selecting appropriate components for the design of robotic control systems.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have knowledge of basic electronics: capacitor, diode, and transistor
  • Must have knowledge of sensing possibilities: push buttons, potentiometers, photo resistors and force sensitive resistors
  • Must have knowledge of limited number of actuators e.g. DC-motors, step-motors, linear actuators
  • Must have an overview of the basic structure and behaviour of micro-controllers
  • Must have understanding on using micro-controllers: interface to the computer, analogue/digital input/output
  • Must have understanding of circuit applications: DC filtering, circuit protection and amplifiers
  • Must have knowledge of one particular micro-controller to the level of register-structure, special purpose registers (including timers), I/O including digital, drivers, interrupt channels (level/rising/falling), analogue and digital outputs and PWM)

Skills

  • To apply acquired knowledge for the design and implementation of robotic control systems
