PHYS 105 - Building and Programming Robots

4 credits
This course is designed for students interested in engineering. It is a hands-on, project-based course, where teams of 3-5 students will build and test robots to perform a pre-defined task (e.g., navigating through obstacles, picking-up and carrying specified objects to a destination, etc.). The robots will compete against each other at the end of the course. The lectures will cover the basics of how certain sensors and motors work, and basic programming techniques for processing the sensor inputs and for generating motor outputs. Repeatable as topic varies.  Graded Pass/Fail.
  Prerequisite: CSCI 117, or permission of instructor. CLA-Breadth/Interdisciplinary, CLA-Quantitative
