Subject Title
Mobile Robotics Software Design

Subject Description
This course provides a technical foundation into the design and development of embedded software for robotic control. Students will be introduced to the terminology and design concepts for tele-operated and autonomously controlled robotic systems. Using an education-focused robotic device platform, students will learn about analog/digital sensors, and software design for low power micro-controller applications.

Credit Status
1 credit (3 units)
Professional Option for BSD -­ Honours Bachelor of Technology (Software Development)

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

  1. Explain the theory and design concepts of robotic systems in order to identify software control requirements
  2. Explain the use of different sensory devices in order to identify sensory and control requirements based on task/environment
  3. Interpret analog/digital input/output of sensory devices used to transfer data between sensors and micro controller systems
  4. Apply tele-operated and autonomous design concepts to the context of embedded software engineering principles
  5. Design embedded tele-operated control software to control and monitor robotic systems
  6. Design embedded autonomous control software to control and monitor robotic systems
