Robotic & Mechatronic HomeLab Kit Community


Welcome to the Network of Excellence of our Robotic HomeLab Kit Community. This page is a supportive environment for students and teachers using the Robotic HomeLab kit. We are offering learning material and full set of methodologies for the teaching and self education on AVR microcontroller technology. Additionally you can find here information about the ARM-CAN HomeLab Kit or AVR-CAN Kit.
This page is offering you e.g. a bunch of practical examples, about digital input/output, indicators and displays, sensors and motor control. The driving force of this site is HANDS-ON learning concept. The figure below is giving you an overview and set of important keywords of the concept trying to force the engineering domain and international collaboration in learning and teaching.

How to use this page

We would recommend to you, to start with the Introductional part of AVR microcontroller, our theoretical basis material, dealing with the functionality of e.g. registers, interrupts and clock issues.
If you are firm with the theoretical part, you can go ahead starting with the practical use of the AVR and the Installation part, heading to the practical examples. Depending on your level of knowledge and getting the idea how to document your project, the example project part would be interesting for you.

Contributing

The Network of Excellence is meant as collaboration site. We hope, you can and will benefit from its use and our practical examples on the one hand and on the other hand that you will contribute to the content, if you notice, something is missing or seems faulty. You can always register yourself on the page to take a part of discussions and get the extended access. In case of owner of Robotic HomeLab hardware and being teacher in any school you should request the supervisor privileges. This will open you the supervisor section with the specific content.
