The purpose of this course is to review basic electronic components and electrical properties needed to interface sensors and actuators to a microcontroller.
This module serves as a brief introduction to the ARM Cortex-M microcontroller, assembly programming language and some debugging techniques.
This module is an introduction to the C programming language, and the concepts of compiling and debugging using the MSP432 and Code Composer Studio™.
The purpose of this module is to learn how to power your robot.
In this module, you will interface a line sensor (infrared sensor) to the microcontroller and learn how to write software to initialize GPIO pins.
This module will demonstrate how to use finite state machines as a central controller for the system.
The purpose of this module is to develop interface switches and an LED so the robot can effectively detect wall collisions.
In this module, you will learn the fundamentals of SysTick timers and pulse width modulators (PWM).
This module provides an intro to how flash memory operates, including debugging techniques for real-time systems.
This module will show you how to display characters and provide real-time debugging on an LCD screen.
The purpose of this lab is to interface the motors to LaunchPad™ to make the robot move.
In this module, you will write software that uses the timers to create PWM outputs.
This module demonstrates how to use priority interrupts for creating real-time systems.
This module will teach you how to interface the infrared distance sensors using the analog-to-digital converter.
In this module, you will learn how to interface the tachometers that enable the robot to measure motor rotational speed.
The purpose of this module is to create a control system by combining the sensors with the actuators.
The purpose of this module is to understand the operation and use of first in first out (FIFO) queue to interface the robot to the PC using a serial channel.
The purpose of this module is to understand the basic concepts of Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE).
A introduction to commonly-used interfaces in industrial applications, including RS-485, RS-422, ProfiBus, RS-232, IO-Link, CAN and LIN.
