  • 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. Please direct any questions about the kit or the course to: mkhawaja@unex.ucla.edu.
