Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have gained an understanding of fundamental concepts related to robotics.
  • Must have an understanding of how vision and other sensors can be integrated with a robot
  • Must have an understanding of relevant technologies enabling the design of intelligent machines (artificial intelligence).
  • Must have an understanding of highly flexible and integrated automation technologies.
  • Must have an understanding of the business potential of intelligent manufacturing.

Skills

  • Must be able to use various technologies to provide manufacturing systems with intelligent capabilities (reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects).
  • Must be able to model the direct and inverse kinematics of a robot.
  • Must be able to design simple trajectory planners, including Cartesian and joint interpolators
  • Must be able to program an industrial robot to carry out various tasks
  • Must be able to integrate vision with an industrial robot.
  • Must be able to integrate and implement intelligent machines into a small and limited manufacturing system.

Competences

  • Must have the foundation to participate in projects aiming at designing intelligent manufacturing systems which more or less autonomously can adapt to variations in its environment and, over time, improve its performance.
