This course is structured as two parts: (1) articulated robot manipulators and (2) autonomous mobile robotics. Articulated manipulators form an important class of robots that are commonly used in industrial situations. The purpose of this part of the course is to introduce students to fundamental concepts of geometry, kinematics, dynamics, and control of robotic systems allowing students to model and analyse a robot manipulator. The autonomous mobile robotics part of the course is an introduction to the probablistic robotics techniques that underpin self-driving cars and other autonomous robots. This course is project-based and students will be given the opportunity to apply the material in both simulation and with real industrial and research robots through project work.
