Advanced Kinematics for Robotic System MSE 429 (3)
Introduction to kinematics of robot manipulators (serial and parallel). Serial: Forward and inverse kinematics for manipulators with spherical and non-spherical wrists. Parallel: Loop-closure equations and methods for solving polynomial systems. Trajectory generation: Joint and Cartesian spaces. Jacobians, velocity and static force analyses, singularities (kinematic, static and architectural). Introduction to dynamics. Prerequisite: MSE 222. Students with credit for MSE 490 - Advanced Kinematics for Robotic Systems (Fall 2016) cannot take MSE 429 for further credit. ENSC students declared as Systems Option majors may not take this course. Students may not take both ENSC 488 and MSE 429 for credit.
