Abstract

An innovative robotics-based microprocessor course has been designed for the electrical engineering technology associate degree program at the-Penn State Abington-Ogontz campus. The course focus is the team design, testing, and troubleshooting of a microcontroller-based autonomous mobile robot. Topics include robot design and control, microcontroller architecture, 6811 assembly and high-level (C) programming. Mini-lectures and workshops are scheduled on an "as-needed" basis. A robot competition is held at the conclusion of the course. The project-based course has proven to be highly motivating for the student participants. This project was supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education under Grant No. DUE-9454547.
