The purpose of this lab is to interface the motors to the TI LaunchPad to make the robot move. Understanding how duty cycle, voltage and current combine to affect speed is required when building your robot.
This module demonstrates how to use priority interrupts for creating real-time systems. As your robot system becomes more complex, period interrupts are one way to combine multiple threads onto one microcontroller.
This module will teach you how to interface the infrared distance sensors using the analog-to-digital converter. IR distance sensors are an essential component for solving robot challenges where avoiding walls is necessary to achieve the goal.
In this module, you will learn how to interface the tachometers that enable the robot to measure motor rotational speed. Tachometer data allows your software to drive straight, drive for a prescribed amount of distance or turn at a prescribed angle.
The purpose of this module is to create a control system by combining the sensors with the actuators. Incremental and integral control are simple algorithms for controlling motor speed.
New to mm-wave sensing? This series of five short videos provides a concise yet in-depth introduction to sensing using FMCW radars.
Labs are follow-along training videos that walk you through installation, building, and running examples of mmWave sensor projects.
The training provides a very comprehensive introduction of the commonly-used interfaces including RS-485, RS-422, ProfiBus, RS-232, IO-Link, CAN and LIN. These interfaces are used in the application of Factory Automation and some other industrial applications. For the engineer who needs to deal with interface system design, this is a very useful training.
