Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


A project-centered introductory computer science course for freshman and sophomore engineers has been developed at Penn State Abington. Teams of students collaboratively design and implement algorithms in the C language for autonomous mobile robot applications. The team projects have been developed to introduce and reinforce critical programming concepts and these team, projects have largely replaced the traditional lecture portion of the course. Collaborative software design for mobile robots provides direct, visual feedback of algorithms and has enhanced the learning process in the computer science course.
