Connexions - share educational material
Connexions is a dynamic digital educational ecosystem consisting of an educational content repository and a content management system optimized for the delivery of educational content.
A First Course in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Provides readers with a comprehensive, introductory look at the world of electrical engineering. It was originally written by Louis Scharf and Richard Behrens at the University of Colorado. This collection includes MATLAB exercises and diagrams that step readers through a broad range of topics, including phasors, circuit analysis, binary coding, and more.
Freshman Engineering Problem Solving with MATLAB
This course, originating at Arizona State University at the Polytechnic Campus, is intended to introduce freshman engineering students to problem solving using an m-file environment, such as MATLAB, LabVIEW MathScript, Octave, etc. It is designed for the novice programmer, and covers the most commonly used features of the language.
Digital Electronics Education
The objective of Advanced Digital Electronics courses is to bridge basic logic gates (combinational circuits) with technical topics related to binary counter topologies (Asynchronous & Synchronous), shift registers, memory, and DSP (Digital Signal Processors) which fall under the sequential devices umbrella

The main goal of this project is to develop a miniature mobile robot for educational purposes at university level.
To help the creation of a community inside and outside EPFL, the project is based on an open hardware concept, where all documents are distributed and submitted to a license allowing everyone to use and develop for it.
This project has been started at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne as collaboration between the Autonomous Systems Lab, the Swarm-Intelligent Systems group and the Laboratory of Intelligent System.
Plan for Robot
"The robot should cover a large spectrum of educational activities and should therefore have a large potential in its sensors, processing power and extensions. Potential educational fields are, for instance, mobile robotics, real-time programming, embedded systems, signal processing, image or sound feature extraction, human-machine interaction or collective systems...
