The mechatronic workshop at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd is an intense one-week-workshop for the fourth semester. The ambition is to develop an understanding of mechatronic coherence and to develop a safe and experienced handling of electronical and mechanical components. As a student, I already assisted Prof. Franz Biggel in the development of the course, and enjoyed the cooperative teaching in my position as academic guidance.
I supported the students in problem solving of their electrical circuits and took care about the programming.
The results vary from mind controlled robotic arms to autarkic light-orientated solar panels.
