Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

As a result of the Australian Government's and or the ACT Government’s directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.


From self-driving cars to robots in space, from robots that collaborate with humans to robots that augment human capabilities, robotic applications are far and wide and ever evolving. This unit builds on the unit Foundations of Robotics and will introduce students to advanced topics in robotics using a series of lectures and studio work involving real-world case studies.

Students will be exposed to the fundamentals of kinematics, control, and probabilistic techniques in robotics. Key algorithmic and mathematical concepts will be discussed through real world problems and students will have the opportunity to implement these ideas using simulations and on real robotic platforms. Students will gain a factual understanding of the current state of the art in robotics along with an exposure to emerging and future trends in robotics, including current research in Human Robot Interaction, robotics in the creative industries and robot ethics.
This unit may be cotaught with 11525 Advanced Robotics PG.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Understand the industry;

2. Apply principles and techniques in varied application domains related to IT and Engineering;

3. Formulate solutions to solve problems related to robotics and automation;

4. Evaluate the current practice and predict future trends; and

5. Demonstrate conversance in key soft skills, such as communication, analysis and inquiry, problem solving, independent and group working, professionalism and social responsibility.
