|Lecturer (for classes)
|Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
|Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
|Basic course in the field of robotics – introduces students to key notions and concepts of robotics with an accent on industrial robots. The course objective is to makes students capable to understand geometry, kinematics, dynamics, path planning, control and programming industrial robots. Application of basic theoretical concepts on simulation models and real industrial robots.
|A student will gain fundamental knowledge in programming industrial robots as a part of automated systems or planning of production processes using robots. This knowledge can be "final" for those who just want to introduce with the most important principles or prerequisite for those who are interested in specialization in the field of robotics and manufacturing automation.
