Topics in Autonomous Robotics

Students will be introduced to modern approaches in control and design of autonomous robots through lectures and exercises.

Mechanical design principles

We will study the working principles and physics of essential mechanical components for diverse applications in engineering mechanics. The course will serve as a vehicle to introduce and synthesize new mechanisms to strengthen the often-intuitive design processes.

Mechanical product design and development

Study and explore design principles of the different mechatronic components and systems. We will cover in-depth especially on meso-scale actuators, sensors and body construction methods.

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
