I learned how to use an STM microcontroller to effectively create a digital differential for the electric vehicle we were making. I also assisted in the designing and machining of the chasis and steering mechanism. I hadn’t learned how to code microcontrollers at MIT, but I was able to apply my knowledge of design, CAD, and structures to the design and manufacture of the vehicle. I learned how to program hardware which is something I’d never gotten much experience in. I really appreciate the opportunity to do so as it will be very helpful with my interests in robotics.
