ECSE 4480/ECSE 6966/MANE 4960/CSCI 4480 Roboics I (Fall 2011)

This course covers the tools and methods for the kinematics and dynamics analysis,and control design for robots, including articulated manipulators, platform type of manipulators, and mobile vehicles. The classes of robots that will be considered include open chain manipulators, closed chain manipulators such as multifingered hands, parallel robots, and nonholonomic systems such as wheeled robots. The emphasis will be placed on developing a systematic understanding of the basic principles in the analysis, control, and planning of robotic systems.

* We will be using the RPI LMS this semester, which will be linked to the content on this site.
* Final Exam: Friday 12/16, 3-6pm, DCC 330
