Digital Electronics: Robotics, learn by building module II Course Description

The knowledge gained from the analog electronics module opens up more opportunities for a variety of professions and hobbies. Just think of how many industries/businesses/hobbies you have related to computers or computer control. Even cars are now full of digital electronics. All of this has to do with digital electronics and I want to get involved right now. In this Module 2 course, you will build digital electronic circuits, use and program microcontrollers such as PICs and Arduinos, and connect them to the real world. Requires an understanding of basic electronics (eg Robotics: Learning Through Buildings, completing Module I), some basic math skills, and a computer.

Over 12,000 students enrolled and students aged 8-60 who received over 300 stars enjoyed our courses and projects.

No prior knowledge of digital electronics or programming is required, but upon completion of this course, you will build a digital electronic circuit that works like digital memory and a programmed microcontroller, which is basically a computer on a Microchip. Connect it to the real world for home automation and robot control. All courses have subtitles for the deaf.

Course material:

Analog electronics and breadboard are required and can be purchased together as a kit (eg analog electronics kit for module I) or provided directly.

You'll also need a digital electronics kit that you can re-purchase as an accompanying kit or provide parts for. The first lesson explores what's included in the kit and serves as a parts list for this module.

This 'Robotics: Learning through Buildings' module series focuses on the end goal of various fields of robotics. In Module I, you learned the basics of electricity and electronics. In this Module II, you will further develop your knowledge and skills involving digital electronics and practice your skills with real-world digital components.

This course is a prerequisite for Module III course, in which you learn robot drive systems and physics, and acquire a variety of prototyping skills to actually build your own robot and manufacture parts. Module IV covers everything you've learned so far, building a 3D printer from scratch, connecting it to a desktop computer, and making your own plastic parts. A 3D printer is effectively a robot that can be used to create parts for other robotic designs. Module V takes your robotic design and construction skills to the next level with a hands-on approach to autonomous robotic systems. On powerful microchips known as FPGAs, you can literally design custom circuits on chips, vision systems, and more.

Lecture outline:

This course will cover:

What is digital?

You can create your own RAM digital addressing/demultiplexing using binary and hexadecimal systems and ASCII analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion logic gates.

Microprocessors and microcontrollers - what are they?

Programming and Using a PIC Microcontroller:

-Display information on LCD display

-Read both digital and analog inputs

-PWM controls DC motors and servo motors.

-Read keypad matrix

-LED display control

-Write to flash memory for remote system

What is an Arduino? - I use an Arduino for all of the above PIC projects and use a full color TFT touch screen.

Creating a mobile robot

Gives a "brain" to mobile robots Ultrasound and ultrasonic radar/external sensing Programmable IR remote control


I have been working as a science and technology instructor for 30 years. I started teaching at science camps when I was 16. I have also taught skills at the high school level for 10 years. I majored in Robotics at Canadore College in North Bay, Ontario, and have done research and development for several innovations over the years, including working with an Eastern Ontario company that produces cool suits and hot suits for harsh environments. Our suits were used on board while the space shuttle was in operation.

My interests go beyond robotics, as I have written several scientific papers, published in peer-reviewed journals and books, authored books on video production, and currently work as a railroad worker for the Canadian National Railroad in Ontario. My passion is still teaching and this can also be seen on Railroad, which currently produced a video series on How to Read Canadian Rail Signals used in conductor courses to teach students how to read them. I have traveled the road for 10 years with the Traveling Museum I have collected and built, talked about the creation/evolution debate, and have been producing and hosting a TV show on this subject for 5 years now.
