Modules

Module 1 - Introduction to Microcontroller Control System Development for Mobile Robots

In this module the most common principles of movement of ground mobile robot, hardware and control algorithms of motion are considered. In practicum participants design control system of tracked mobile robot movement based on 8-bit microcontroller. Developing software students works with general purpose I/O ports, ADC modules, timers, interrupts and PWM modules. C-language is used for programming in IDE MPLAB X. 

As a result of mastering the module, students are invited to perform group projects and compare the results in the form of competition.

Module 2 - Microcontroller-based Control Systems

This module is based on working with a microcontroller laboratory stand, which is a hardware-software complex with a set of control objects, sensors and display tools, controlled by an ATmega128A microcontroller.

Module 3 - Introduction to Wireless Control System Development for Multi-stage Mechanical Objects

This module discusses the principles of managing multi-stage mechanical objects using wireless networks. In practical exercises, participants create a manipulator control system based on a wireless network module. When developing software, students gain skills in working with general-purpose I / O ports. Arduino IDE used for programming.

As a result of mastering the module, students are invited to perform group projects and compare the results in the form of competition.

Master’s degree program "Automation and Mechatronics"

There is a possibility to obtain the Master’s degree by applying for the full-time program “Automation and Mechatronics”.

The program provides students with broad knowledge and skills in the field of automation of production processes and equipment, as well as in the field of mechatronic devices and systems control. Study of network technologies (Intranet- and Internet-technologies), issues of SCADA-systems construction, practical use of real-time systems are important parts of the program.

Students learn the principles of robotics and mechatronics, mechatronic and robotic actuators, modern technologies of microcontroller application. The program gives students deep theoretical knowledge of modern methods of automatic control theory, in particular the methods of analysis and design of nonlinear, adaptive and intelligent control systems.
