MECH 217 Measurement in Mechatronics
This course focusses on measurement theory and Arduino programming to put that theory into practice. Active lab modules provide hands-on practical experience making measurements, doing analysis, and drawing conclusions from them. On completion of the course, students will be able to: Install and test a micro controller system for data acquisition and control; Program in C to acquire and process digital and analog data; Apply transducers, acquisition systems, and procedures to measure pressure, strain, temperature and position; Apply statistical analysis, including uncertainty, for interpreting test results; Apply physical principles to describe static and dynamic system performance for pressure, strain, temperature and position measurements; Students will be expected to use mathematical and computational skills typically acquired in first year. Previous experience with C will be an asset, but is not required.
