This is a graduate level course I developed to teach students how to design their own low-cost sensors, data acquisition system and custom hardware and software interfaces!
It’s a ‘hands-on’ course! It’s intended to provide the skills and confidence to: 1) design basic sensors and research instruments, and; 2) to integrate these in interactive experiments and dynamic control systems.
You do not need any programming or electronics background to take this course! It’s for movement scientists (and others) who do not necessarily have a background in engineering but who want an introduction to instrumentation and physical computing. This course follows the ‘Maker” philosophy, taking advantage of easily accessible open source software and hardware platforms.
