Senior Design

The Electrical Engineering Senior Design Course:

  • provides students with a comprehensive open-ended project.
  • integrates the many skills necessary for professional success.
  • allows students to learn first hand about project planning, FEMA analysis, and teamwork.

The use of a competition-driven Autonomous Ground Vehicle (AGV) design for a senior capstone program offers a number of benefits. The attractive features include: the student excitement and motivation created by the competitive environment; the fact that an AGV design is inherently multidisciplinary in nature involving mechanical and electrical system integration, power electronics, feedback control, digital electronics, software development, sensors, safety, power management etc.; the competition-driven format mimics the need in industry to carry out deadline-conscious product design; and the sophistication of subsystems like vision, obstacle detection, path planning, and feedback control offer good opportunities for graduate and undergraduate research projects.
