ECE179D,ME179D - Introduction to Robotics: Robot Dynamics and Control

Units: 4

Co-requisits: ECE 130A or ME 155A

Instructor(s): Byl


Dynamic modeling and control methods for robotic systems. Lagrangian method for deriving equations of motion, introduction to the Jacobian, and modeling and control of forces and contact dynamics at a robotic end effector. Laboratories encourage a problem-solving approach to control. Emphasis on nonlinear and underactuated dynamics systems, particularly mobile robots.
