Method of teaching and learning 
This module will be delivered through a combination of formal lectures and supervised laboratory sessions. There are totally four coursework that will be assigned across the semester. Every assessment is laboratory report. Assignment 2&4 are the components that have 35% of overall mark for each. Assignment 1&2 would test students on the knowledge of Programming in Rapid Programming; and Assignment 3&4 would focus on Robot and System Integration.
