Robotic manipulation is the ability for a robot to interact physically and deliberately in the world. Although long used in factories, robot manipulators will soon appear in home environments as well, helping us with daily tasks.  This course covers the theory and concepts involved in programming a robot manipulator, including rigid body mechanics, kinematics, dynamics, path and trajectory planning, control, and stability.  At the end of this course, the student is able to program a real manipulator arm to perform autonomous tasks.

When Offered Fall, spring.
