The laboratory portion of real-time controls offers the students the opportunity to apply the control systems theory developed in the classroom via hardware and software tools commonly used in industry such as a microcontroller, sensors, motors, Matlab, Simulink and C programming. Once exposed to the usage of the tools, the students then undertake the design and implementation of real time control of an autonomous vehicle. Using this approach the students not only learn the application of the theory presented in lectures, but the students also experience the system design process, thus refining their creativity, problem solving ability, and teaming skills. As a result, the students preparation for industry is greatly enhanced.
