Robotics: Fundamentals and Applications

when 7 August 2023 - 18 August 2023
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC

Robots are getting smarter and smarter, and taking over a number of tasks for human beings, and there seems to be almost no end to the utilization of robots as novel robotics applications have been being explored and identified continually. This course will give students an overview of the commercially available robots, their application areas, and the state-of-the-art research activities in global robotics community and SDU MMMI research institute, and help students establish strong connection between robotics theory and applications. To this end, fundamentals in robotics will be introduced in the summer course including Kinematics, Dynamics, Control, i.e., KDC pillar modules in robotics, and more importantly, how these theories can be applied in real cases, which will be integrated into a hands-on mini project. In this mini project, you will have opportunity to work on UR (Universal Robots) robot arms for collision avoidance motion planning and control by using the learnt KDC fundamentals. The fundamentals covered in this summer course are mainly for robot arms, but some of them can be general for other types of robots as well.
