Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
  • model and formally describe essential components of robot systems,
  • explain methods for path control and path planning using concrete examples,
  • explain concepts for building complex control architectures,
  • use certain motion types for specific tasks,
  • derive key challenges in the modeling, kinematics, dynamics, control, path planning and navigation of robots,
  • evaluate the kinematic properties of simple robots,
  • develop simple robotics applications.
