Learning Outcomes

After completing the module, the students will have knowledge of the problems and practical solutions to controlling multi-joint robot systems. They will also have acquired methods to abstract and simplify complex, non-linear problems in the realm of action, perception, and representation, which are the basis for cognitive and intelligent robots.


Concepts, algorithms and application-specific aspects of Robotics: - Kinematics, dynamics, position control, trajectory generation, controller tuning, collision avoidance, visual servoing, probabilistic robotics, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). - Practical implementation on a real time control system.
