To provide the student with a fundamental knowledge of robots as applied to industrial robot manipulators, including kinematics, dynamics, motion planning, control, and machine vision.
After taking this course, students should be able to:
* Compute forward and inverse kinematics and dynamics of most common manipulator designs.
* Plan robot trajectories.
* Design both motion and force control algorithms
* Understand nonlinear controllers and machine vision.
Problem solving, controller design, kinematic and dynamic analysis, experimental, working in a group and as individuals, IT.
Introduction to industrial robot manipulators, forward and inverse kinematics, Jacobians, dynamic analysis and forces, inverse dynamics, trajectory generation, linear and nonlinear controllers, force control, robot vision. Practical work includes robotics and haptics experiments with Phantom Omni Robot, and path planning demonstrations on Kuka and Motoman industrial robots.
