2.017 Design of Electromechanical Robotic Systems


Class Info

Design, construction, and testing of field robotic systems, through team projects with each student responsible for a specific subsystem. Projects focus on electronics, instrumentation, and machine elements. Design for operation in uncertain conditions is a focus point, with ocean waves and marine structures as a central theme. Basic statistics, linear systems, Fourier transforms, random processes, spectra and extreme events with applications in design. Lectures on ethics in engineering practice included. Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity.

This class has 2.003, 2.03, 2.05, 2.051, 2.016, and 2.671 as prerequisites.

2.017 will be offered this semester (Spring 2017). It is instructed by F. S. Hover and J. J. Leonard.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 1-134.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

In the Spring 2016 Subject Evaluations, 2.017 was rated 6.4 out of 7.0. You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Design of Electromechanical Robotic Systems site or on the 2.017 Stellar site.
