Content, progress and pedagogy of the
Many robots are manipulators acting in a known environment, e.g.
industrial production. These manipulators often require great
accuracy. This project deals with the challenges of manipulating
robots and attached tools with the adequate accuracy. To obtain
this an understanding of the dynamic characteristic and controller
design are essential.
- Must have knowledge about the terminology with robotic
- Must be able to understand how a particular robotic system, for
example the semester project of the student, interacts with the
- Must be able to analyse a relevant problem and suggest a
solution that uses theories and methods within mechanics,
electronic modules, modelling and control.
- Must be able to identify constraints and assessment criteria
for a concrete robotic solution.
- Must be able to design and implement a manipulator (or parts
- Must be able to evaluate the solution with respect to the afore
mentioned assessment criteria
- Must be able to design robotic mechanisms.
- Must be able to implement control systems using electronic
modules as micro controllers.
- Must be able to develop linear models of the dynamic behaviour
- Must be able to select relevant control methods and apply these
in a robotic context.
- Must be able to communicate the above (using proper
terminology), both orally and in a written report
- Must be able to demonstrate a working prototype of their
