We have developed educational materials on mechatronics with microcomputers embedded as a core as often found in autonomous robots. The developed educational materials are expected to obviate needs for other educational materials to learn a wide range of mechatronics from autonomous robots to factory automation systems as well as learn step by step from visually comprehensible tiling programming to C-language programming. We have used the developed educational materials at the workshops we have conducted as a part of the three-year humanresource development project for small and medium enterprises. In addition, we have compiled into textbooks know-how we have acquired at the workshops and have applied it to the experimental practices of the College.
