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.
