EET students get robotic with their EET 242 class final presentations

Photos and Story by | Start the discussion

This class seems a bit robotic. And that’s the point.

David Goldman’s Electronic Engineering Technology 242 class, “Microcontroller/Embedded Systems,” showed off their creations in a finals presentation in the CC Building at Sylvania Campus on Wednesday, Dec. 2. This fall, students were introduced to the use, characterization, analysis, troubleshooting and programming of microcontrollers and embedded systems in order to apply the knowledge to built devices. As a result, they got to construct a system with user controls and electronic systems, including counters, timers, ports, and memory. Some robots tracked types of color, like anything red, while others followed lines on a mat. Whatever the creation, all of the students had fun showing off what they learned.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
