Delivery: Attendance in lectures is strongly recommended. Audio or video recordings of the lecture may not be available.
Textbook Resources: Selected topics from:
A. Smaili and F. Mrad, “Mechatronics, Integrated Technologies for Intelligent Machines”, Oxford University Press, 2008.
Nanua Singh, “Systems Approach to Computer-integrated Design and Manufacturing”
John J. Craig, “Introduction to Robotics”
Serope Kalpakjian, “Manufacturing Engineering and Technology”
Additional recommended readings may be assigned and provided in iLearn.
Technology and Software: We will make use of MATLAB for modelling and Arduino for embedded system programming. We recommend Fritzing for combuter-based arduino modelling. You will have access to computers with this software during prac, however access to these programs outside of prac will be beneficial.
Late Submissions: Unless agreed to in advance of due dates, late submissions will not be allowed.
Extensions: Extensions may be granted if a valid case for disruption to studies exits. See policies and procedures below.
