ECE 556 Agent-based Mechatronics Systems  
Agent and systems concepts to study sensors, actuators, controllers and communication networks, as well as their interactions. Theory, design and control of the integration of sensors, interfaces, actuators, microcontrollers. Use of computer networks as communication media in the mechatronics systems integration and control. Use of unmanned vehicle path tracking and teleoperation to illustrate the mechatronics agent and system concept and integration. Students can either take ECE 456 or ECE 556, but not both. These two courses are piggy-backed and cover similar material, yet ECE 556 has more demanding homeworks, project, and an exam that are at the graduate level.
