Courses

Embedded Systems and Robotics

This course deals with the programming of embedded systems: cross-compilation, the use of FPU in microcontrollers, the use of DSP instructions and the mechanisms available in a Real-time Operating System. The whole is implemented in a robotic context.

Basics of mobile robotics

The course teaches the basics of autonomous mobile robots. Both hardware (energy, locomotion, sensors) and software (signal processing, control, localization, trajectory planning, high-level control) will be tackled. The students will apply the knowledge to program and control a real mobile robot.

Robotics practicals

The practicals can include the following topics:

  • Teaching Robots to Accomplish a Manipulation Task
  • Experimenting with haptic interfaces
  • Controlling a serial robot ABB IRB 120
  • Control of the Micro Delta Direct Drive robot
  • LiniX, linear axis, assembly and control
