Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2020-21

In this subject we will study the elements that make up a robotic system, types of robots and the analysis of their kinematics and dynamics. Robot control methods will also be seen, focusing mainly on kinematic control for the generation and realization of trajectories. In the most practical section will be the programming of robots using simulated environments and real robots. Finally, the aspects to consider in order to implement a robotic system in the industry, the security features and the regulations to be considered will be discussed.
