The final project has deliverables at two points. Unlike other assignments, you will submit deliverables to the instructor via email. Please pay attention to the specifics below. All students enrolled in EECE.5560 are required to complete a project. Students in EECE.4560 do not need to contribute to a project.

Final Project Proposal Deliverables

The project is open-ended, allowing you to choose your own group members and topic. Please assemble into groups of 3-4 and think of an idea that demonstrates your mastery of robotics. Think about the upcoming topics in the class and how to integrate them into your work. This project is worth 20% of your final grade, propose something that will be worth that!

No later than March 23, 2021, email the instructor:

  1. A short (approximately one paragraph) description of the project you would like to perform
  2. A list of group members. Copy group members on the email as well.

Final Project End of Semester Deliverables
