Boost Your Knowledge of Autonomous Vehicles
For working professionals, this course has ties to data science, engineering, prototyping, and manufacturing.
This course utilizes the Arduino platform to give learners an understanding of how to build mobile robots from start to finish. At the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of what a robot is and how to create one from electro-mechanical components.
Additionally, students interested in autonomous systems will gain a full understanding of how I/O work so that they can develop software-hardware systems for custom robotic applications.
Add “Robotics” Experience to Your Resume
These are the goals you’ll achieve after this course:
- How to build a robot from start to finish from a box of real engineering components
- How to interface I/O to a microcontroller (Arduino)
- How to read datasheets to interface motor drivers for DC motor control
- How to receive data from sensors and make autonomous decisions in real-time
- How to run tests and diagnostics to troubleshoot common issues with robots
By the end of this course, you should be very comfortable designing and building autonomous mobile robots to respond to various environmental conditions.

You will need our kit to take this course. Buy the Learn Robotics Alpha Kit and have all of the components you need for both of our online courses.
Designed for Personal Enrichment & Development
We recommend taking our first course, Arduino for Beginners, if you do not have previous coding or circuit experience.
This course can be taken by learners ages 14+ who have some programming and electronics background but have never built a robot before.
As a working professional, this course can boost your resume by giving you key skills in I/O, hands-on prototyping, mechatronics, DC motor controllers, and technical troubleshooting.
You’ll also have the added bonus of self-enrichment in the robotics field, without being tied to a full-time degree program. This will give you the straight-forward skills you need without the added stress of being in college.
If you’re a high school student, this course will give you the fundamental skills in mobile robots and prepare you for careers in Electronics/Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, Robotics/Automation Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and more.

Take Advantage of Learning from Home
Jumpstart Your Robotics Engineering Career
There are a ton of robotics kits you can buy where 99% of the programming and configuration is done for you.
In this course, you’ll learn the fundamental components of a robot, source these components, and build, wire, and program everything from scratch.
The coolest part about this class is that you’ll get real experience solving challenges with autonomous robots.
Write Motor Controller Code
Motor control is a critical part of robotics. But how do motor controllers work? How do you interface a mechanism with an electrical system?
In this course, we’ll guide you through the process of interpreting motor controller datasheets so that you can add autonomy to your robot.
P.S. This skill isn’t just useful for building hobby robotics. Interpreting datasheets and using motor controllers is a highly valuable skill for those of you looking to get into the field of automation engineering.
Interface Hardware with Software
Start by gaining hardware-software coding skills. Collect readings from sensors and add functionality to make autonomous decisions.
Then, learn how to reuse and optimize code.
You can learn the tricks for reusing and deciphering data to make decisions automatically. Save yourself time and automate the process!
