2.12 Introduction to Robotics

Class Info

Presents the fundamentals of robot mechanisms, dynamics, and controls. Planar and spatial kinematics, differential motion, energy method for robot mechanics; mechanism design for manipulation and locomotion; multi-rigid-body dynamics; force and compliance control, balancing control, visual feedback, human-machine interface; actuators, sensors, wireless networking, and embedded software. Weekly laboratories include real-time control, vehicle navigation, arm and end-effector design, and balancing robot control. Group term project requires design and fabrication of robotic systems. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments. Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity; preference to Course 2 majors and minors.
