Most mechatronic systems include dedicated computers that handles the ”intelligent” tasks of guidance, monitoring and control. Typically, such a dedicated computer is connected to/equipped with sensors that allow it to measure important information about current system status and (in some cases) its surroundings. Using these measurements, the dedicated computer executes various algorithms that enable it to determine how to operate the mechatronic system's actuators in response to the immediate situation. Building on the knowledge gained in the 2nd semester, this course aims to provide the students with theories and methods that enable them to design and implement programs for such dedicated computers and use them in a practical system context.
The programme is based on a combination of academic, problem-oriented and interdisciplinary approaches and organised based on the following work and evaluation methods that combine skills and reflection:
Since it is a 5 ECTS course module, the work load is expected to be 150 hours for the student
