ECSE 4480/6966 MANE 4960/6963 CSCI 4480 ISYE 4960 Roboics I (Fall 2013)

This course covers the tools and methods for the kinematics and dynamics and analysis and control for articulated robots. The focus will be on open chain articulated manipulators, but other types of mechanisms will also be covered, including closed chain manipulators such as multi-fingered hands and parallel robots, and nonholonomic systems such as wheeled robots. The emphasis of the course will be on developing a systematic, analytical understanding of the basic principles in the analysis and control of robotic systems. There will be MATLAB and laboratory exercises as well as a term project.

* We will be using the RPI LMS this semester, which will be linked to the content on this site.
