Topics in Autonomous Robotics

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

Robotics & the future of manufacturing I

This course is an ideal learning platform to address the topics of robotics and manufacturing. The theoretical basics of robotics are introduced. Systems, specifications and performances are discussed to understand well the technology and the related applications of robotics and manufacturing

Robotics & the future of manufacturing II

This course is devoted to exploration projects in concern with robotics and manufacturing. The students with interdisciplinary backgrounds will have to design new products and address new markets around topics such as open robotics, rehabilitation robotics and transport.

Basics of robotics for manipulation

This course introduces the basics of robotics for manipulation. The aspects concerning robot architectures (Serial , Parallel and Cartesian), sensors, kinematics and dynamic modelling and control are presented. Each of these theoretical topics is i concern with a industrial context.

Applied and industrial robotics

This course is a real contact with industrial robotic applications. Components and mechanisms are reminded. The fields of microtechnical assembly and packaging are treated. CTOs from established companies (BlueBotics, Adept, Maxon motors and UniTechnologies) are involved in this course.

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

    Haptic human robot interfaces

    This course teaches basic knowledge on haptic devices, force feedback and mechanical man-machine interfaces. Lectures are about 40 %, the rest is hands-on practical work with the "haptic paddle", a complete mechanical device with full laptop control interface. Realization of project in groups of 2.
