Embedding Sensors and Motors Specialization
Experience Sensors and Motors in an IoT World. Master sensor and motor theory, and program these devices in a microprocessor system.
What you will learn
Study a lab experiment or production process and understand how to specify the proper sensor solution for taking real-time process data
Implement the sensor into an embedded system in both hardware and software
Modify existing hardware schematic to add sensors and all support circuitry needed to implement the signal chain in existing microprocessor system
Create hardware and firmware to process the sensor signal and feed data to a microprocessor for further evaluation
Skills you will gain
About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
You will create hardware and firmware solutions for sensors and motors that take real-time data and process it within an embedded environment. You will measure and record metrology data with oscilloscope traces and use the tools within the embedded system to amplify, filter and optimize the signals.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
There are 4 Courses in this Specialization
