Student Equipment Purchases

Learning experiences and assessment activities in this unit require that students have access to specific computing equipment, such as robotics platforms, microcontrollers and sensors. In this unit, some of the required equipment is shared amongst other IT units and may have been purchased previously (to the approximate value of $150). Additional equipment to the value of $200 will be required.


In this unit, students will use industry standard approaches to developing robotics applications.  These approaches allow the integration of hardware, software and different communications technologies as seamless applications to solve complex physical problems using robots. Students will learn how to develop publish/subscribe and service-based applications that allow multiple ground and/or airborne robotics systems to interact. Students will learn advanced robotics techniques, including control, navigation, vision, planning and simulation.
