Mechatronics Laboratory

The Mechatronics Laboratory is designed to teach senior mechanical engineering students to build basic analog and digital circuits; develop an understanding for use of analog to digital and digital to analog conversion, actuators (servo and stepper motors) and sensors. Additionally, students learn to program a microcontroller and interface it with various actuator and sensor elements necessary to build a working robot.
