Availability

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

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. 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. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Syllabus

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.

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.

Contact Hours

One 1 hour interactive workshop and 3 hours of studio work on-campus per week.
