What you will learn

  • Why automation and robotics?
  • Learn the fundamentals of robotic and automation systems to evaluate opportunities and barriers for adoption and implementation
  • Design and development of robotics
  • Identify robot subsystems and various architecture paradigms and articulate the roles that sensing, planning, and control play when considering a full robotic system.
  • Sensing and perception – Delve into the important roles that sensors play in robotic architecture to understand how robots accomplish tasks.
  • Robot decision-making – Explore robot task planning and how to use planning models and decision processes as tools to program robot decision-making actions
  • Motion planning and trajectory generation
  • Examine motion planning and its applications – manipulation planning and navigation planning – to understand how it can be successfully integrated into various robotic systems
  • Establishing control – Learn the basics of function and movement of various parts of a robot system, including several fundamental techniques and characteristics that impact movement performance
  • Concurrency and real-time systems – Discuss and evaluate how to manage challenges of robot concurrency, the tendency for things to happen at the same time in a robotic system, and how to use real-time scheduling and real-time requirements to order and sequence robot tasks within a constraint time frame
