Class Presentations

These are the powerpoint presentations from each class:

  • Introductory Presentation - An introduction to the instructor, to the Asylum, to types of robotic design, descriptions of the two projects, and course goals and plans
  • Session 2 - Introduction to the programming and controls project
  • Session 3 - Review of the programming and controls project, brief description and introduction to PID control
  • Session 4 - Breaking up into teams and top level conceptual design introduction

mbed/m3pi Robot Resources

We used an mbed processor controlling an m3pi line following robot platform for the programming and controls project at the start of class. You can find resources for it in this section.

  • You can purchase an m3pi robot here. We used an mbed NXP LPC1768 development board to control the m3pi platform, which you can find available for purchase here.
  • The mbed Handbook contains a lot of useful information about programming the platform.
  • The mbed Cookbook contains a lot of sample programs that use the mbed platform to accomplish specific goals
  • The m3pi homepage contains a lot of information about getting up and running on the m3pi platform, including a simple and easy to follow Hello World application.
  • The online compiler is where the programming work for the mbed is done. Email Gui for login and password information for the class account.
