School of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran


An educational robot is described, which is designed and constructed for use in the laboratory of Principles of Electrical Engineering. The discrete nature of design, conforming to a simple block strategy, allows fairly easy introduction of basic and fundamental concepts of Electrical Engineering to the freshman students, including control, actuation, wireless signal transmission, and analogue/digital conversions. Each block or module represents one or few engineering ideas, and helps the students to understand the interplay and connection between system divisions, and enhance their creative thinking. Circuits are designed and implemented that both the structure and functionality of each module are clearly presented. Inputs and outputs as well as major signals can be traced and measured through several test points
