14. Description of lectures
The developement and disciplines of mechatronics. Theoretical structures of automats (controlled and regulated machines). A historical overwiev of the development of computing. Integrated circiut technology. Generation of microcontrollers, its main types. Main elements of robot controllers (overwiev). Sensors, actuators. Programming of embedded systems. Tools of the hardware engineering (AutoCad, OrCad, Protel). Simulation softwares (Symula, MatLab). Motor controlling, regulation. Pneumatic machines. Transport application examples (cars platoon on public roads, the 75 Hz train controlling system).
15. Description of practices
16. Description of labortory practices
Microcontroller - type 8051 - programming by Assembly and C languages. Machine and compiled languages in microcomputer programming. Architectures of microcontrollers, push button and led controlling. Programming of cloks, timers, interrupts and AD converters. Programming of virtual display and Num Pad.
17. Learning outcomes
A. Knowledge
  • knows the basics of building embedded systems
  • knows the basic serial communication techniques
  • knows the basic principles of A / D and D / A conversion
  • knows basic signal processing algorithms
B. Skills
  • capable of programming embedded systems
  • is able to design data collection systems
C. Attitudes
  • is interested in modern IT solutions
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  • is able to apply the knowledge acquired here to other similar, yet unknown systems
18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
2 midterm exams from theory and two individual programming task (one ASM code, one C code). The final grade is the mean of the grades of the four tasks.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
Both midterm exams can be retried once, both individual tasks can be delayed completed.
