Course aim

The Summer School is dedicated to robotics, information theory and communication systems. The robotics part provides an overview of the main areas of robotics – robotic systems, kinematics and dynamics – and it features the use of a robot education cell. The information theory and communication systems part covers the history of information theory, and it features practical examples of solving problems in modern communication technology, enabling students to better understand challenges in the systematic design of communication systems. As an additional topic, mechatronics is introduced. It features a case study, in which students develop a mechatronic system.
