Mechanical Engineering : Manipulator performance and design. Pick-and-place and continuous-path operations. Computation of rigid-body angular velocity and acceleration from point-data measurements. Inverse kinematics of serial manipulators with coupled architectures; kinetostatics of multifingered hands and walking machines. Kinematics and dynamics of parallel manipulators and wheeled mobile robots.
Terms: Winter 2014
Instructors: Jozsef Kovecses (Winter)
Since the course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, and B- is the minimum passing mark for graduate students, this minimum mark will be relaxed for undergraduates. The regulations applicable to undergraduates will apply accordingly.
