This course presents techniques for the analysis and design of robotic systems. Topics include joints and manipulator's mechanisms; vectors and coordinate systems; forward and inverse position and velocity analysis of serial manipulators; trajectory planning for manipulators; dynamics equation of robotic manipulators; and PID position controllers of manipulators. The physical laboratories will provide experience with working with commercial robotic manipulators. PREREQ: ENGR 2506, 3547 and 4526. (lec 3, lab 2) cr 3.
