Learning outcomes:
Based on previous lectures, this module will familiarize students with the applications of microcontrollers in defined areas of automation technology. After successfully completing this course, students will be able to analyze tasks and justify their selected approach. They will then be capable of implementing their approach using hardware and software and thus, designing a functional prototype Finally, students will be able to test their prototype and modify the solution to achieve better results. Where necessary, students will have the opportunity to consult with the lecturer and/or carry out simulations. Our primary focus will be the technical application of skills.
