The Robotics course is designed so that it provides the student with the basic knowledge and understanding of the concepts and technologies involved in robotic arms and their use in industrial applications.
1. Have an idea of how a robot arm works (hardware & software)
2. Know the mathematical tools for the description of position/orientation and motion of rigid bodies and open chains of bodies (robot arms) in space.
3. Have knowledge and skills regarding robot motion planning and control as encountered in typical robotized industrial processes.
Course Content (Syllabus)
Robot applications, robot arm structure, Position and orientation of rigid bodies in space, Robot kinematics, Rigid body motion/velocities, Jacobians of robot manipulators, Trajectory planning, Robot manipulator dynamics and control.
Position - orientation of rigid body in space, Robot kinematics and dynamics, Jacobians, Robot control
