Courses of at least 90 credits at first cycle including the following knowledge/courses. The courses D0009E Introduction to programming, E0013E Basic course in electrical engineering (alternative E0003E and E0007E) and R0002E Modelling and Control or equvivalent. This means that the student should be able to program in a high-level language, analyse simple electronic circuits and furthermore be familiar with basic control theory. Alternative: Alternative to completed courses can be corresponding knowledge acquired through work with the electronics sector.
The selection is based on 20-285 credits
The student will
after the course be able to design and program a mechatronic system including
mechanics, electronic sensors, simple electronics, a control circuit
(microcomputer) and electrical motors.
- After the course the student should be able to construct and analyze a mechatronic system.
- The student should be able to critical and creative deal with issues and technology solutions, plan and execute a skilled task, and work in teams with different compositions.
- The student should be able to identify the need for further knowledge and to continuously upgrade their skills.
- The student should be able to integrate knowledge, model, simulate, and anticipate a process. This is shown during the execution of the project that is a part of the examination in the course.
- Transistors, transistor circuits with inductive loads.
- Radiometry, the photodiode, amplifiers for photodiodes.
- Digital circuitry, peripheral circuits and control circuits.
- Introduction to the C programming language, program development tools.
- Electric motors and drive circuits for motors.
- Project Mobile Robot.
- OrCAD (PSpice) are used for description and simulation of designed circuits both for the laboratory work and in the project.
