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 will be co-taught with 11479 Advanced Robotics (UG).
Learning outcomesAfter 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.
Graduate attributes1. UC graduates are professional - use creativity, critical thinking, analysis and research skills to solve theoretical and real-world problems
2. UC graduates are global citizens - make creative use of technology in their learning and professional lives
3. UC graduates are lifelong learners - adapt to complexity, ambiguity and change by being flexible and keen to engage with new ideas

Required Text Book: Saeed B. Niku: Introduction to Robotics: Analysis, Control, Applications,
Edition: 2nd Edition
Suggested average student workload:
Lectures (2h lecture + 0.5h preparation) 12h x 2h + 6h = 30h
Laboratories (2h lab + 3h preparation) 10h x 2h + 30h = 50h
Laboratory Assignments (Part 1 + Part 2 ) 25h + 25h = 50h
Quiz 1 (incl. preparation) = 10h
Quiz 2 (incl. preparation) = 10h
Total: 150 Hours
Inclusion and engagement
It is strongly recommended that students who need assistance in undertaking the unit because of disability or an ongoing health condition register with the Inclusion and Engagement Office as soon as possible so that reasonable adjustment arrangements
Student participation in lectures, tutorials, laboratories, and online activities will enhance the student's understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in the student's inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
Required IT skills
Students should make themselves familiar with PC usage. In particular, it is expected that students are able to manipulate files (copying, pasting,create and manipulate ZIP files) and install / run software in Linux, Mac, or Windows (XP, 7, 8) operating systems. Basic familiarity in a programming language (e.g. C++, Java, Python) will be useful but not compulsory.
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
