Paper Abstract

We describe recent robotics projects carried out by Electrical Engineering undergraduates at Texas Tech University. Design Lab projects employing mobile robots proved to be an excellent choice, as the animation and instant feedback provided by the robots instilled great enthusiasm, and taught important principles in areas such as micro controllers, motor control, sensors and artificial intelligence. Several autonomous robotic vehicles, employing a variety of sensors, were successfully designed and demonstrated. We also discuss ongoing design projects to build RF telemetry links, an RF navigation system, and other mobile platforms such as the `TT-U-Boat'.
