Title
PeopleMover: an example of interdisciplinary project-based education in electrical engineering
Author
Abstract
In this paper, the authors present an interdisciplinary design project that was recently introduced into the electrical engineering curriculum as an example of project-based education. Within the project, students design and implement an autonomous rail system intended for people transportation from system specifications down to a fully working system including hardware and software. The educational assets and drawbacks are discussed as well as the practical issues of setting up a large educational project. The current state of the project and an overview of future improvements based on student feedback are highlighted as well.
