Low Cost Mechatronics Trainer [LCMT]
Looking for some help in designing low cost trainers to teach basic Mechatronics principles?
Team CollaborATE funded by an NSF ATE grant with Anne Arundel Community College, College of Lake County, and Florida State College in Jacksonville as partners is doing just that. The trainers we’re developing will complete a real function and will be designed on a systems level platform with the ability to isolate sub systems for teaching and then integrate as a whole. Professor Tim Callinan at Anne Arundel Community College is leading the design and development of the trainers.
Each trainer will cost under $1,000 to build and can be used to accommodate two students in a laboratory setting. The curriculum will be a laboratory manual with supporting documentation.
This website will share everything needed to build and use the trainers in the classroom. Since this project is a work in progress, we will be updating the site as new material is developed, so check us out periodically.
Thanks to a great bunch of students who have worked hard and created some great designs and drawings. I hope you had fun....James Kaifer, Billy Kaifer, Tyler Hynson, Mark Morello, Will Schwab, Sean Mackey, Greg Doyle, Joe Tonkin & Stuart Thomas.
