- It is recommended, that the student has a general basic knowledge of hardware and robot technology.
Learning objectives - Knowledge:
- Describe and explain the integration of several hardware and pc-based technologies, such as e.g. sensor and actuator interfacing for the microcontroller, wireless or wired communication between microcontroller and
PC, Handling of communicated data on the microcontroller or PC.
- Describe and explain how technologies can be integrated and programmend in order to provide and support learning and playing experiences.
- Describe and explain the iterative development including prototyping, user-testing, evaluation etc.
Illustrate human - technology interaction patterns with a given technology.
Learning objectives - Skills:
- Analyse and compare existing technologies in order to identify their possible integration into a new context.
- Design, compose, construct and evaluate prototype tehnologies for play and learning from existing and newly invented software and hardware parts.
Learning objectives - Competences:
- Apply the methods of iterative, incremental development in the construction of an interactive technology for playing or learning purposes.
Practical and theoretical work on e.g.:
The load on the course will be divided into two parts. The first part here will have ⅔ of the load.
- Advanced Microcontroller programming.
- Artificial intelligence
- Digital communication
- Robot technology
The second part of the course will have ⅓ of the load.
- Experiments with interfacing different types of sensors and actuators.
- Robot design
- Testing and further developing prototypes with users.
- Possibility to develop, implement and evaluate teaching events in robot technology in municipal primary and lower secondary school.
