TI lures universities with robotics system learning kit

February 14, 2018 // By Julien Happich
Designed as an educational solution for the university classroom, the TI Robotics System Learning Kit (TI-RSLK) provide students a deeper understanding of how electronic system designs work.

The first in the series, the Maze Edition, has more than 60 electronic and mechanical components, including the SimpleLink MSP432P401R microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad Development Kit. Through the curriculum, students learn the function and purpose of each hardware and software component included within the TI-RSLK system. With this groundwork, students can write and develop their own code and then build their own fully functioning robotics system. This learning journey culminates in a robot that can complete line-following challenges, compete against other TI-RSLK robotic systems and solve its way through a maze.

Designed to supplement university faculty curriculum, the TI-RSLK Maze Edition comes with 20 learning modules covering basic to advanced topics. Each module is complete with lecture videos and slides, lab documentation and demonstration videos, quizzes and classroom activities. The kit and curriculum is fully customizable, allowing faculty to choose how they integrate the TI-RSLK into their class. The TI-RSLK is targeted to teach embedded systems and applications, and can be expanded and used in a variety of engineering classes at any level along a college student’s learning journey.
