Besides CASE LAB there is a student driven organisation, Chalmers Autonomous Systems and Electronics. CASE makes it possible for members to attend the lab after school (17:00). CASE's purpose is to raise the knowledge and interest in electrical/embedded systems and mechatronics.
The association is open for Chalmers students, employees and alumni.
The CASE community also has some interesting projects you might want to check out and learn from. We have developed prototypes ranging from electric vehicles, PCBs and art.
The association managed by the board containing of up to nine members. The board members are students from any program at Chalmers.
The board exist to enable students to use the lab after school, organize member educations, talk with Chalmers, host interesting projects, stock components and organize workshops. In short, the Board makes the CASE association possible.
Are you out of ideas or want to do something together with others? The association funds projects each year. They range from groups of four building competition robots to electrical vehicles for the Chalmers Cortège. An example project is the 2019 line-follower "Blitz" which competed at Robot-SM 2019
. The projects was funded and developed by members in CASE. You can find more info at our GitHub repository
Each projects gets a budget and supervised by one of the board members. We hope that by funding projects we help students connect with other like-minded students and to give those who are new to practical engineering an opportunity.
A group of 13 students started the work in autumn of 2017. Before then there had been numerous attempts dating back to 2013. Five of the students from 2017 later started the association and created the first board.
Before CASE LAB there was a mechatronics lab called "RAM-labbet" which was 1/3 the area of CASE LAB. In the picture you can see the team-17' preparing RAM-labbet before the renovation.
The name CASE originated from the team-17'. CASE LAB was later adopted as the official name for the lab and the association kept the name CASE.
