Abstract

This course is designed to develop experimental skills in engineering measurement methods, based on electronic instrumentation and microcontrollers such as the Raspberry Pi and Arduino. Lectures are concerned with engineering analysis/design and principles of instrumentation, while the laboratory modules allow for the use of these devices in experiments. Lecture topics include discussions of standards, measurement/sensing devices, experiment planning, data acquisition/analysis, and report writing. Laboratory experiments address mechanical, energy, and materials measurements, and instrumentation. The course culminates with an open-ended project which will illuminate the skills gained by the student to utilize multiple sensors and equipment to monitor and/or control physical situations.
