15 Credits AUTUMN



Aims/Description: The module aims to explore robotic manipulators, from theoretical concepts and modelling to practical implementations. You will be introduced to the different types and applications of robotic manipulators. An emphasis is placed on modelling and simulation. Sensing and actuation is also covered, with a focus on control of robot manipulators. You will be exposed to a wide range of practical applications of robotic manipulators, and encouraged to discuss and reflect on the implications of using robots (e.g. ethical considerations, safety, social and economic impacts), especially within manufacturing.
