Controlling Manipulators

by Quanser Inc.

Students complete activities for PID Joint Control, Forward Kinematics, and Inverse Kinematics using the Quanser Mechatronic Systems Board and LabVIEW. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Manipulator Control

by Quanser Inc.

Using kinematic equations and PID, students control a robot arm to follow trajectories. Students use LabVIEW experiment with gains to limit task-space error. Designed for NI ELVIS II/II+.
Modeling DC Motor Control

by Quanser Inc.

Students create and validate a model for the DC motor's behavior. Designed for NI ELVIS II/II+.
Pushbutton Switch

In this project, students discuss the essential concepts associated with a pushbutton switch and apply software-based edge detection to convert a pushbutton press into a trigger event.
Potentiometer

This project provides students with the tools and activities to learn the properties, principles of operation, and interface theory of potentiometers.
Designing a PD Controller to Specifications

by Quanser Inc.

Students learn to design a PD (proportional-derivative) compensator based on specifications to control position. Designed for NI ELVIS II/II+.
Processing Images

In this lab students will learn about image processing techniques and applications through several project-based, hands-on lab activities. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Distance and Proximity

by Quanser Inc.

Students complete hands-on activities involving sensor calibration, measurement scatter, and target reflectivity with sonar, time-of-flight, and infrared sensors. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Contact

by Quanser Inc.

In this lab students will learn about sensing contact through hands-on activities with switch debouncing and capacitive touch sensors. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
