The Rock Valley College Electronic Engineering Technology department's Robotics and Automated Systems class (EET-254) will demonstrate what it has taught a robot to do with heat-treat simulation, pneumatic bottle capping, and more at an open house on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Woodward Technology Center (WTC), room G17 (lower level) on RVC's main campus.
The Robotics and Automated Systems course at RVC introduces students to the mechanical, electrical, and electronic components used in robotics and other automated systems. Students learn the essential terminology used in robotics and the basic operation of robots in automated manufacturing, and are introduced to the programming software used for automated systems. Laboratory work includes interfacing the various components properly, and writing programs and the robot programming language in group and/or individual projects.
This event is open to the community and refreshments will be served. For more information contact Joe Etminan at 815-921-3174.
