1. Running Code on the TI LaunchPad™ Board Using CCS
Review software development methodology and understand how to set up an integrated development environment (IDE).
Each module is complete with lecture videos and slides, lab documentation and demonstration videos, quizzes and classroom activities and resources from Texas Instruments to support the learning experience. The kit and curriculum is fully customizable, allowing faculty to choose how they integrate the TI-RSLK MAX into their class. The TI-RSLK MAX is targeted to teach embedded systems and applications and can be expanded and used in a variety of engineering classes at any level along a college student’s learning journey.
Through the curriculum, students learn the function and purpose of each hardware and software component included within the TI-RSLK MAX system. With this groundwork, students can write and develop their own code and then build their own fully functioning robotics system. This learning journey culminates in a robot that can complete line-following challenges, compete against other TI-RSLK MAX robotic systems and solve its way through a maze.

Create the robot and build the circuits needed to power the robot.
Explore conversion from light to voltage and voltage to binary; learn to write software to initialize GPIO pins.
Use finite state machines as a
central controller for the
Learn the fundamentals of SysTick timers and pulse width modulators (PWM).
Learn to display characters and provide real-time debugging on an LCD screen.
Interface the infrared distance sensors using the analog-to-digital converter.
Create a control system by combining the sensors with the actuators.
Understand the operation and use of first-in, first-out (FIFO) queue to interface robot to the PC using a serial channel.
Understand basic concepts of
Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE).
A line-following challenge can be attempted after module 13. You can attempt the simple maze challenge after finishing module 15. More advanced challenges will require additional modules. Solutions to the labs provide components (hardware and software) for the challenge. In the challenge, you perform system-level design with the components developed in previous modules.Download the challenge
