  • EG-M111 Automation & Robotics

    The module will provide the knowledge and skills to design, build and safe operation of industrial robotic and automation systems. Systematic introduction of kinematics robot manipulator will be given, based on the learning of homogeneious transformation matrix and Denavit Hartenburg (DH) convention. The graduate will gain a critical awareness in selecting and applying appropriate automation and robotic equipment for industrial applications, and they will be able to identify DH parameters of a given robot manipulator and then calculate its forward/inverse kinematics.

  • EGA366 Kinematics and Programming for Robot

    This module first examines the historical development of robotics, both technical and sociological. And then introduces various application of robot technologies focusing on manufacturing, both existing and potential are examined. The core of the module lies in the studies of robot kinematics including trajectory planning and programming. As part of this, industrial standard robot models are analysed and practically experienced through simulation toolkit and commercial software.
