ECE 495 Senior Design

ECE 495 is the first of a two class senior design sequence in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University, taught by Dr. Timothy Burg. Students in this class participate in group projects each semester from the areas of Robotics and Mechatronics. The emphasis is on giving students experience in real-time control systems, computer vision, and in the use of MATLAB Simulink with xPC for prototyping their design and interfacing with hardware. Past projects in this class have included Virtual Haptic Manipulatives for K-12 Education, Master-Follower Surgery Robots, Mirrored Aquatic Environments, and Autonomous Vision-Based Robotic Ping-Tac-Toe. In addition to the technical aspects of the project, emphasis is placed on: the development of effective technical communication skills, ethical considerations in engineering, product life-cycle analysis, teamwork, intellectual property, and safety.
