Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control 专项课程

开始日期 Aug 20

Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control 专项课程

The most important concepts in modern robotics。A study of the kinematics, dynamics, motion planning, and control of mobile robots and robot arms.

本专项课程介绍

This Specialization provides a rigorous treatment of spatial motion and the dynamics of rigid bodies, employing representations from modern screw theory and the product of exponentials formula. Students with a freshman-level engineering background will quickly learn to apply these tools to analysis, planning, and control of robot motion. Students' understanding of the mathematics of robotics will be solidified by writing robotics software. Students will test their software on a free state-of-the-art cross-platform robot simulator, allowing each student to have an authentic robot programming experience with industrial robot manipulators and mobile robots without purchasing expensive robot hardware. It is highly recommended that Courses 1-6 of the Specialization are taken in order, since the material builds on itself.
