Hands-on experience within design and development of cross-country robotics vehicles for plant nursing. The course assignments will be based on the demands for the Field Robot Event-competition.
This gives interested students the possibility of continuing their work after course termination in terms of individual term assignments and bachelor’s or master’s projects. Course subjects:
• Visual and mechanical design of cross-country robot vehicles for plant nursing.
• Construction of embedded computer systems for such vehicles.
• Physical mode of action of sensors and actuators.
• Development of electronic interfaces for sensors and actuators.
• Software development in the field of sensors and actuators (vehicle layer), control and locomotion based on sensor perceptions (navigation layer), autonomous state machines (mission layer).
• Hands-on experience with design and development of mechanics, electronics, and software.
• Introduction to project groups from other study programmes. Evaluation:
Individual demonstration presentation of the project product supported by an oral presentation. Internal examination. Grading in accordance with the Danish 7-point grading scale. Teaching form:
Short key and introductory lectures (20 hours) and hands-on work (160 hours). Supplementary, clarifying lectures at group level will be given, if needed. You must expect a work load corresponding to at least monday-friday 8.30 to 16.00. Requirements
Enrolled in an engineering or science study program and passed the 4th semester in design, mechanics, computer science, physics, mathematics, etc.
Teaching language: English.
