Robotics Systems Eng. & Analysis

This course examines methods of specifying, designing, analyzing and testing robotics systems. The principles and processes of robotics systems engineering are introduced and applied to the development of robotic devices. The focus is on a robotic system engineered to perform complex behavior. Robotic systems embed computing elements, integrate sensors and actuators, operate in a reliable and robust fashion, and demand rigorous engineering from conception through production. The course is organized as a progression through the systems engineering process of conceptualization, specification, design, and prototyping with consideration of verification and validation. Students completing this course will engineer a robotic system through its complete design and initial prototype. Prerequisites: ROB-100, EL-100 and EL-150 (3-0-3)
