The QNET Mechatronic Systems board is the only solution that takes students from component-level knowledge of sensors, actuators, and interfacing fundamentals to a system-level understanding of mechatronics design. Students investigate and implement various sub-components of a mechatronic system from manipulator control, to image processing, line-following, pattern recognition, PWM generation, encoder decoding, LabVIEW FPGA coding, and more. This exemplifies challenges they will encounter in a typical industry-level applications.
