[MNE 482 – Robotics]

Introduction to the various aspects of the mechanics of robotics, its classifications, and terminologies involved. Forward and inverse kinematics of a robot manipulator are treated in detail with the application of homogeneous and Denavit-Hartenberg transformation techniques. Dynamics, control, and programming of a robot manipulator are discussed with associated laboratory work.


[MNE 466 – Control Systems Design]

Introduction to sensors used widely in control systems. Analog and digital control of machines and processes are discussed along with modeling of control system elements and linearization method and its applicability. Both frequency and time domain control design techniques are discussed. Algorithms for computer control and the effect of sampling on stability are developed. Applications of analog control devices and microprocessors are included.
