UQ Robotics!

Welcome to ELEC 3004/7312 -- Digital Linear Systems: Signals & Control!


This course teaches the fundamentals of linear systems theory for continuous and discrete signal analysis and feedback control. 
Additional information can be found on the Courses & Programs listing and in the Course Profile for ELEC 3004/7312 - Semester 1 - 2019.


An open, online assignment submission system supporting peer assessment that randomizes on a per-question, as compared to a per assignment, basis. (concept sketch
Some tips and principles for good peer feedback are given in "Introduction to Peer Review" (Tutorial Wk. 2).

The class has three problem sets / assignments worth 60% in total (or 20% each). 
They will nominally go out 1-2 weeks before they are due and are designed to take about a week to complete.  They are to be submitted via Platypus please.

  1. Problem Set 1: An Introduction to Signals and Systems (20%)

  2. Problem Set 2: Sampling and Filters (Digital & Analog)  (20 %)

  3. Problem Set 3: Digital Feedback Control  (20 %)

Final Examination:

The final exam is worth 40% total.  It is managed by the UQ Central Examinations Office. It is scheduled on June 10, 2019 from 2:30pm to 5:30pm and will be held in 49-301 or 9-217 It may or may not include with an equation sheet (see practice exam).  Students may or may not additionally be permitted a doubled-sided A4 equation sheet of their own design.  All past exams are available online (for study, an example of format/style, etc.): including the 2019 final exam, 2018 final exam, 2017 final exam, 2016 final exam, 2015 final exam, the 2014 final exam, the 2013 final exam, or the practice exam.
