The course "Robotic Systems" gives an overview of the main areas of robotics, whereby the mechanical structure as well as the mechatronic components used in robotics are in the focus. Kinematic analyses are introduced fundamentally and will be further developed in the course "Advanced Robotic Kinematics and Dynamics". The aim is to develop skills in the selection, synthesis, development, equipment and implementation of robotic systems based on a given handling task.
After a detailed introduction into the development of robotics and different fields of application, the classification and the selection of suitable robots will be discussed. Later, the focus will be on the components and the application of robotic systems. Within the framework of a laboratory exercise the students can solve and plan handling tasks independently by means of the simulation software ROBOGUIDE and check them with the Robot-Education-Cell on the real robot.
