Abstract

Recently, many studies on educational system are being conducted. In this manuscript, a unique education system is proposed for mechanical engineers to be able to efficiently learn basic mechatronics techniques. The system is composed of three subsystems. The first subsystem is used to learn input/output port operations, periodically LED lights ON/OFF and a stepping motor control. The second subsystem is effective to learn AD transformation for several sensor information, DA transformation for DC motor control and a PID control method. Further, the third subsystem is multiple mobile robots system to learn the subsumption architecture for schooling behavior. The effectiveness of the proposed systems was confirmed through experimental instructions in Tokyo University of Science, Yamaguchi.
