IN1080 – Mechatronics
Changes in the course due to coronavirus Spring 2020
Teaching and examinations will take place digitally. This may result in changes to your schedule, mandatory activities, exam form and grading scale. See updated information on the semester page and in Canvas.
Basic analogue electronics, sensors and sensor interfaces, actuators. Programming of mechatronic systems.
After finishing IN1080, you'll:
- understand the behavior of analog circuits. Relevant concepts are: current, voltage, resistance, power, impedance, direct current, alternating current, RCL, MOS, FET, OPAmp
- be able to use classical analytical methods based on the theorems of Kirchoff, Thevenin, and Norton
- understand and apply sensors, signal conditioning and conversion, as well as some inter component buses
- be able to build and program simple mechatronic systems with microcontrollers, actuators and sensors
- understand basic control theory and how PID controllers work
Admission to the course
This course has 60 slots and bachelor students in Informatikk: robotikk og intelligente systemer are prioritized.
Recommended previous knowledge
The course is based on knowledge corresponding to Fysikk-1 and -2 from norwegian upper secondary school (videregående skole), as well as the novice courses in informatics: IN1000/INF1000/INF1001//IN1900/IN-KJM1900/INF1100, IN1020.
- 8 credits overlap with INF1411 – Electronic systems (continued).
2 hours of lectures and 2 hours of group teachings each week.
Implementation of laboratory exercises is required, these may take place as project work. Read more about requirements for submission of assignments, group work and legal cooperation under guidelines.
Attendance of the first lecture is compulsory.
