The Robotics and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) Lab is the work place for special purpose design, prototype & build, program & test of (mostly) mobile robots. This lab is also the home for Bronco Robot that was built by one of our undergraduate student. Since then the bronco robot has been mostly upgraded for greater flexibility derived from higher level of programmability using a PIC controller.
The lab space is also used year around to prepare FIRST FRC (www.quantumninjas.com) & FLL teams for national competitions and associated activities. The graduate research and undergraduate senior design projects are also conducted using lab facilities. STEM project teams continue to use the Robotics lab for a series of hands-on activities.
Instruction Emphasizes design, prototype and building of three to five axes programmable mobile robot systems.
