Workshop 5: C Programming
Thursday 2nd of April at 17:00–19:00, GP-S519 A C workshop! Programming is a very important part of robotics, and now we’re going to show you the basics of it. The class will focus on basic microcontroller skills like manipulating registers and using interrupts. We’ll just blink some LED’s and push some buttons, but the idea …
Workshop 4: Mechanical Design
Thursday March 26 at 17:00 – 19:00 GP – G216 This week we will be introducing fundamental concepts in mechanical design as they apply to robotics, and the use of CAD programs for modelling.
Workshop 2: PCB Design
12 March at 17:00 in GP-S1129 Last week we made a simple 555 timer circuit on a breadboard. This week, we’re extrapolating on that by designing a similar circuit as a circuit board.
