D Cube STEM Robotics Learning Kit

The D Cube STEM Bot a low-cost robotics kit and classroom curriculum which provides students with a deeper understanding of how electronic system designs work.

Target

The D Cube STEM bot Edition curriculum comes with 30 learning modules covering basic to advanced topics. Each module is complete with lecture videos and slides, lab documentation and demonstration videos, quizzes and classroom activities. The D Cube STEM bot is targeted to teach Microcontroller Programming and applications and can be expanded and used in a variety of engineering classes.

The curriculum covers:

  • Electrical engineering concepts such as voltage, current, power and energy.
  • Microcontroller interfacing with sensors, actuators and motors, concepts of pulse width modulation(PWM), flash ROM, analog to digital conversion, digital to analog conversion, and serial data transmission
  • Software design and testing using multithreading and debugging
  • Fundamental theories such as Nyquist, Central Limit and Little’s Law
  • Building systems using finite state machines (FSM), closed loop control, Bluetooth low energy and Internet of Things
  • PID loop
  • Black line follower and wight line follower Robot
  • Black Maze follower aad wight Maze follower robot

The purpose of this course is to review basic electronic components and the electrical properties needed to interface sensors and actuators to a microcontroller. You will learn how to measure reactance of a capacitor and use your project to measure current and voltage. The electrical properties of the capacitor will help you design circuits that “filter” or remove noise from your robot.

Review basic electronic components and the electrical properties needed to interface sensors and actuators to a microcontroller.

Voltage
You will learn in this module
1.Electrical Engineering Terms
        • Voltage, V (volts)
        • Current, I (amps)
        • Energy, E (joules)
        • Power, P (watts)
2.Electrical Engineering Devices
        • Resistors
        • Capacitors
        • Inductors
        • LEDs
3.Test Equipment
        • Voltmeter, ohmmeter, current meter
        • Oscilloscope

1.Definition of voltage
        • Voltage is caused by potential difference between two points
        • Symbol is V and is measured in Volts
        • Electromotive force or potential to produce current
2.Properties
        • Always measured as a difference
        • Signed, directional causes current to flow
        • Battery used to drive motors of your robot
        • Follows Ohm’s Law
3.Measurements
        • Voltmeter measures DC and AC voltage
        • Oscilloscope measures voltage changes as function of time ( V v/s t)

In the circuit shown in Figure 01, the left voltmeter measures the potential difference between the battery terminals. Even with the switch open, this potential difference is not the same as the EMF of the battery since the voltmeter itself draws some current from the battery.
