Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The multiple choice test will require knowledge of the basic materials presented in the lectures. The examination requires from the student a formal knowledge of the basic principles of robotics and on-off control.
Semester 1 Study Abroad students will be able to sit the assessment earlier.
