As the technology matures, robots will become ubiquitous in the society playing a major role in shaping our everyday lives. With the advent of Industry 4.0, robotics is set to disrupt numerous industries and create new ones. This introductory unit exposes students to the exciting world of robotics through a series of hands on projects covering major themes in robotics. Students will gain an understanding of various sensors used in mobile robotics, actuation and technologies related to robot navigation. Key hardware and software tools used by researchers and the industry in robot development will also be introduced.
This unit will be co-taught with 11370 Foundations of Robotics (UG).
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.
