About this Course
The age of robots is upon us. They are in our homes, in our workplace, and all around us in the form of drones, driverless cars, heavy duty machinery, etc. This two-part course introduces you to the world of robots, the mechanics behind them, and what it takes to build a robot from scratch.
In TH 201: Robotics & Mechatronics, you will learn how to build a WiFi-controlled robot and bring it to life. You will learn fundamental theory, modeling methods, hardware components, interfacing requirements, simulation and programming tools, and practical applications of robotics and mechatronics. You’ll also learn about infrared waves and create your own web server using HTML and CSS. Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll be prepared to take the next course: Course 202: Smart Home Technology where you’ll learn how to build a WiFi light switch.
