On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Choose and integrate hardware components for a simple robotic system.
Design and synthesize simple software control systems for individual robotic joints
Develop and implement mathematical models of multi-link robots to describe the relationship between individual joints and the position and velocity of the robot's end effector
Apply elementary computer vision techniques to control an intelligent robot.
Program simple paths and tasks on articulated robotic arm platform.
Design and report development of practical robotic systems that incorporate all of the above.
