Introduce engineering concepts and programming with 12 projects about feedback and control, servo and stepper motors, and more.
Projects and Challenges
This book describes twelve sensor-based projects that your students can build and program. Each project starts with a set of design requirements devoted to a specific engineering application. After the students have successfully mastered the goals set forth in the project, they are offered a challenge to further test their construction and/or programming skills. Some activities even offer an extreme challenge involving more complex logic or mathematics.
The activities are loosely ranked in order of increasing difficulty (Project 1 is easier than Project 12). A table of projects and their corresponding Vernier equipment requirements is listed below.
