Where to start to make automation instrument ?

  1. Jan 25, 2012 #1
    Dear Experts,

    I am currently in last year in university. My major is Electrical Engineering concentration in control. In my campus, I am given a lot of theory about EE rather than practical things (making instrument or robot).

    And now I get my internship in manufacturing company that gives me project to detect whether the produced stuff (in this case cable for automotive) has match with the quality standard or no.

    I start searching for previous year final project by online n offline but I dont get the stuff that can guide me step by step...

    I am so confused!

    Anyone there might help me? maybe lend me yours or share me your links or share your experience :D

    Thank you so much for yout time and sharing.

    Start by deciding which parameters you need to measure, and with what accuracy.
    Once that is done you can start worrying about the implementation.
