ROB-UY 2004 Robotic Manipulation and Locomotion

4 Credits
This class introduces basic notions of robotics, from sensors and actuators to kinematics, dynamics, motion planning and control with specific example applications for object manipulation and legged locomotion. Basic algorithms necessary for any robotics practitioner interested in robots with arms and legs are studied in the class. A special emphasis is made on providing a practical experience to students, with a laboratory enabling the implementation of the learned concepts in real applications. Background in calculus, physics, linear algebra and programming are necessary to follow the class.

Prerequisite(s): (CS-UY 1114  or CS-UY 1113 ) and MA-UY 2034  and PH-UY 1013  or equivalents (see Minor in Robotics)
Weekly Lecture Hours: 4
