Robotics and Human-Machine Interfaces

Credits: 6

Objectives: The objective of the course is to provide students

  • the capability of solving problems using tools developed for the analysis of robots; 
  • the practical ability in designing and integrating a robotic-mechatronic system; 
  • the theoretical and practical knowledge of algorithms and architectures that integrates Human-Robot interaction

Description: This course is organized in two sections. The first part aims at providing the students with the basic concepts needed for the modeling and control of robots. This module includes:

  1. theoretical sessions where mathematical concepts on kinematics, dynamic and controls of robots are introduced; 
  2. practical sessions where exercises and problems are solved using the introduced concepts. 

The second part of the course introduces the student to a specific field of Human-Robot Interaction. This module gives an overview of haptic interfaces, motion based simulators, and wearable robots (exoskeletons and power extenders) using the basic concepts introduced in the first part of the course.

Other topics covered by this course include haptic rendering, computer haptics, haptic in tele-operation, wearable robots control, and energy management.

Assessment: Oral examination, lab project

Prerequisites: Digital Control Systems and Mechatronics

Modules: 1

Module 1 (6 Credits): Robotics and Human-Machine Interfaces
