MREN 348  Introduction to Robotics  Units: 4.00  

Robotics is an interdisciplinary subject concerning areas of mechanics,
electronics, information theory, control systems and automation.
This course provides an introduction to robotics and covers fundamental
aspects of modeling and control of robot manipulators. Topics include
history and application of robotics in industry, rigid body kinematics,
manipulator forward, inverse and differential kinematics, workspace,
singularity, redundancy, manipulator dynamics, trajectory generation,
actuators, sensors, and manipulator position and contact force control
strategies. Applications studied using MATLAB/Simulink software simulation
and laboratory experiments.
