Modeling in Robotics

  • Number of credits 7.5 Credits
  • Level Master’s level
  • Starting Spring Term 2018

About the course

Kinematic and dynamic models, necessary to describe motion of mechanical systems, are covered in depth. Engineering mathematics is applied in depth, and is interspersed with theory, laboratory work, seminar, as well as a small project.
Methods and models are illustrated in simulations and experiments.

The course is divided into four parts:
1. Theory, 3.5 ECTS.
This part aims to broaden the knowledge and significantly enhance know-how in robotics and mathematical modeling of mechanical systems.
2. Labs, 2.0 ECTS.
This part includes a number of exercises which aim to implement, apply, reflect upon, and interpret results and data. It is based on knowledge and methods presented in theory part of the course.
3. Seminar, 0.5 ECTS.
This part consists of a number of seminars, and to orally and in writing present solutions to selected problems related to modeling in robotics.
4. Project, 1.5 ECTS.
This part consists of planning, implementing, study, and to evaluate a project carried out on a mechanical system equipped with sensors. The student is also trained in the ability to critically evaluate their own and others' work, for example through assessment matrices. The student will also critically evaluate robotics and automation solutions from a social and ethical perspective.
