All freshmen of ShanghaiTech University take the "Introduction to Information Science and Technology" course. Robotics is the theme connecting the labs of the four parts of the course:
- In the Electrical Engineering part the students build a sensor device
- In the Programming part students learn to program in Python
- In the Signal Processing part the students learn how to interpret the data from the sensor
- In the Robotics part everything is integrated onto a robot to perform a certain path-following task
The video below shows some impressions from the 2015 and 2016 courses.
