news | Administrative Info. | lectures | labs | competition


The friday of each week will consist of lab work. Students must present experiment results on the final day of each lab, and hand in a lab write-up by 9:00am, one week after the final day of each lab. Late reports or demos will be reduced in point value by 50% for each 24 hours they are overdue.


The robot used for this course is the Dr. Robot Jaguar Lite developed by Dr Robot.  A brochure can be found here. A manual with documentation for programming can be found here.

There are several files required for running the base codes on your personal computer. For Windows XP, follow the software installation instructions. Some software is located on the Dr. Robot Jaguar software disc that must be borrowed from the instructor.

If you need MVS, you can borrow an install disk from the instructor.
