Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering
|Unit Coord.:||Professor Thomas Bräunl|
Semester 2, 6 points
- Discuss the history and evolution of applications of robotics systems and embedded control systems
- Demonstrate basic procedural skills
- Practice enquiry based thinking through foundation knowledge and exploration of conventional and potential applications
- Practice of enquiry based thinking through foundation knowledge and exploration of conventional and potential applications
Technical and other capabilities (professional development)
- Develop and code robot-specific algorithms
- Apply specific AI methods when appropriate
- Effectively use a robot simulation system and physical robot
This unit covers C Programming (1/3) and Robotics (2/3).
C topics are: Advanced C prgramming, Data structures, Procedural control elements, Using libraries for larger projects
Robotics topics are: Introduction and history of robotics and automation, Mobile Robots, Robot Manipulators, Kinematics and Localization, Navigation and Mapping, Robot Vision, AI for Robotics, Automation Systems
The outcome of in-depth technical competence is assessed via written tests. The outcome of student group work is assessed in assignments and laboratory reports. Individual student skills are assessed via a written report on a robotics project.
