ATS is proud to announce a new partnership with Quanser, a company who has established itself as the world leader in academically focused, industry-relevant research technology and labs for engineering programs.
With over 30 years in academia and 2,500 teaching institutions using their learning systems, Quanser has the knowledge and expertise to provide world class hardware and software to engineering students.
The company’s vision is to look at engineering questions and then design labs that provide the research capabilities to answer them. In fact, the name Quanser originated from a combination of Question + Answer.
Research is a key component to the Quanser line of engineering education solutions. Over 3,000 research papers have been published globally using Quanser technology.
Quanser’s team is comprised of individuals who are passionate about quality products, research-based learning and cutting-edge technologies. The ATS team visited the Toronto headquarters in February where they were absolutely impressed by the technology and curriculum built by the company.
The company’s dedication to developing only the best teaching technologies will ensure that student’s are prepared for a broad scope of engineering careers.
That Quanser has established itself as the world leader in its field is no accident. The company has involved itself in developing curriculum and research equipment, doing research for government projects, holds positions in global engineering education leadership including the Global Engineering Dean’s Council and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association, and in consulting with universities to help develop new engineering programs around the world.
Quanser’s transformational labs create collaborative, multi-disciplinary environments that bring to life math and engineering theory, combining research with application. Their solutions cover disciplines such as:
- Motion Control
- Aerospace Control and Dynamics
- Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering
- Autonomous Vehicles
- Industrial Engineering
The full line of hardware is integrated with QUARC software, which leverages MATLAB and Simulink software. This allows programs to utilize the same software students are already familiar with while getting feedback and inserting inputs in real-time.
Quanser’s solutions teach every level of engineering education, from basic servos to full autonomous vehicle research labs.
The QUBE-Servo 2 is the only fully integrated lab experiment that covers the spectrum of controls topics from undergraduate linear control concepts to graduate level non-linear controls.
The Autonomous Vehicles Research Studio integrates QDrone quadrotors, QBot 2 ground vehicles, a ground control station, and vision and safety equipment to create a lab of autonomous vehicles operating simultaneously using smart technologies.
Quanser’s solutions are perfect for mechanical, electrical, civil and aerospace engineering programs and both the university and technical college level. Backed by research and curriculum, these labs will benefit any program looking to upgrade its impact on students.
