Student Equipment Purchases
Learning experiences and assessment activities in this unit require that students have access to specific computing equipment, such as single board computers, microcontrollers and sensors. The expected cost of this equipment for this unit is $150. This equipment will also be usable in subsequent units.
This unit will introduce students to ubiquitous and readily accessible devices for data capture, such as the sensor suite on a mobile smartphone, and those commonly used in homes, vehicles and current examples of cyber-physical systems. Students will be introduced to data capture protocols and methodologies, as well as data presentation and visualisation methods. Through practical investigations and analysis, students will investigate issues of robustness, reliability and validity of data and the effects of these on conclusions drawn from data.
