ET3056TU Hardware implementation project

Topics: Hardware implementation phase of the minor “EE-Mi-109-13 Electrical Engineering for Autonomous Exploration Robots”
ET3056TU is the actual hardware implementation phase of the minor “EE-Mi-109-13 Electrical Engineering for Autonomous Exploration Robots”. It is the phase where the prototype hardware is actually build and tested. The multi-disciplinary hardware implementation phase has a content that is open to proposal by a team of students that follow the minor together. Examples from the past include rocket propulsion systems. The implementation phase is intended to create an professional industrial environment where meeting deadlines and cost optimization are as important as achieving technical and scientific goals. (In short, it is a training in professional realism.) The project intends to lead to a convincing prototype. This result is evaluated by a committee of internal and external professionals.

Study Goals

After this project phase the students:
  • are able to create a feasible project plan and defend this for a committee of experts
  • are able to do proper (literature)research to have a good view of the state of the art
  • are able to restrict themselves after a diverging brainstorm to a target that is feasible within the given project time.
