Abstract
From automobiles to robotics to process automation, the electronic control of mechanical systems is ubiquitous in modern control engineering. These controls are often implemented using microcontrollers, making understanding and learning how to work with microcontrollers an important part of the mechanical engineering curriculum related to control theory. For over 25 years, a course on utilizing microcontrollers to control electromechanical systems has existed at The University.
