Unified Robotics I

College of Engineering
MECH
This is the first course in a four course sequence combining both the theory and practice of robotics engineering. The focus of this course is the introduction of robotic system applications, components of a robotic system, basic programming for robotics, object-oriented programming and design, GUI and event driven programming, debugging tools and coding standards, state machines, Introduction to EmguCV, Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's voltage law, Kirchhoff's current law, single loop systems, analog sensors, microprocessors, electromechanical actuators, mechanical actuators, degrees of freedom, spatial rotation matrices, coordinate transformations, constraints, and rigid body forward kinematics. The laboratory sessions consist of hands-on exercises and team projects where students design, build, and program robots and related sub-systems.
