|AUMF 1150Introduction to Robotics
Prerequisite: IDSY 1120
Explores basic robotic concepts. Studies robots in typical application environments. Topics include: robot history and fundamentals, robot classification, power sources, robot applications in the workplace, robot control techniques, path control, end of arm tooling, robot operation and robot controllers, controller architecture in a system, robotic language programming, and human interface issues.
|ELCR 2140Mechanical Devices
Develops knowledge and skills necessary to transmit mechanical power using common industrial linkage types. Emphasis is placed on use of mechanical devices in combination with electronic controls. Topics include: linkages, motion analysis, gear drives, and preventative maintenance.
|ELCR 2150Fluid Power
Provides an overview of fluid power operation as applied to industrial electronics. Emphasis is placed on the interfacing of electronic and fluidic systems. Topics include: safety, fluid dynamics, hydraulics, pneumatics, air logic, and electrical interfacing.
|IDSY 1160Mechanical Laws and Principles
Introduces the student to fundamental laws and principles of mechanics. Topics include: Mechanical Principles of Simple Machines; Force, Torque, Velocity, Acceleration, and Inertia; Rotational Motion; Work, Power, and Energy; Matter; Gases; Fluid Power; and Heat. The course emphasizes understanding terminology and using related problem solving skills in everyday physical applications of mechanical technology. Competencies are reinforced with practical hands on lab exercises.
