Autotronics Education – An Active Learning Approach 2009-01-0364
The industrial communication network field has experienced a great growth throughout the years due to the complexity achieved by the automation systems in several areas (industrial control, automotive, aircrafts, ships, home automation, etc.). An autotronics laboratory for learning automotive communication network CAN (Controller Area Network), automotive electronic and automotive control systems in the context of an industrial collaboration agreement is presented. Several workshops are described in order to illustrate the autotronics educational project based on active learning methods. Results are evaluated based on ABET criteria.
