This course will introduce the remarkable recent advances in Robotic Control Systems based on state-of-the-art digital actuators. The course includes a daily 3-hour hands-on lab conducted remotely over Zoom where students construct their own robotic control system kit. This course is designed to support all student backgrounds. No advanced knowledge in robotic control systems is required. June 10 Enrollment Deadline.
Understand the critical new capabilities of digital actuators and sensors that are appearring in Robotic Control systems
Receive a comprehensive and complete review of control system fundamentals for Robotics Controls
Hands-on experience with design methods, tools, and performance analysis systems
Complete multiple phases of end-to-end design, experimental implementation, real-time visualization, and system evaluation projects
About this course:
This course will introduce the remarkable recent advances in Robotic Control Systems based on state-of-the-art digital actuators. These digital actuators, for example in motor control, now appear in a diverse range of new products from aerospace, ground vehicle systems, medical robotics and consumer electronics devices. These create opportunities for development of precise, high performance, and energy-efficient robotics. This course introduces digital actuators and then new digital actuator control systems. This includes example design and implementation examples. This also includes live demonstration of a novel digital control system. Finally, a hands-on kit, just now available, offers engineers with an opportunity to rapidly develop deep experience in this most important new field. This kit will be constructed during a daily 3-hour hands-on lab conducted remotely over Zoom. Kits must be ordered by June 10.
