Mechatronic Systems Design - MTRX3760

Year - 2018

This unit of study follows a systems engineering approach to the integration of hardware and software components to form mechatronic systems. Sensors: dead reckoning and inertial sensors; external sensors including ultrasonic, laser, radar and GPS; sensor interfaces, serialisation and data streams. Methodologies for object-oriented design; the C++ language: classes and class design; overloading; inheritance and polymorphism; iostreams. Operating system: introduction to structure and principles; facilities for interprocess communication and synchronisation; device drivers and applications programming; Gnu software tools; make and related utilities; communications middleware for distributed software. Students will complete a six-week project working in groups to design and implement a distributed mechatronic system.
