This is a project-oriented and design-based learning unit in which students investigate the fundamentals of software engineering of robotics systems and their application to problems dependent on sensing the environment and the entities within it. The themes within this unit encompass: engineering principles, agile software project management, robotics, use of ubiquitous sensor technologies, data capture protocols, data analysis and visualisation processes and how these underpin decision making, both by machines and humans. Students will complete a team-based project applying principles covered within this unit.
