This course provides an in depth study of the fundamentals of modern robotics. The material covers both standard robotic manipulators and modern mobile robots. Material covered includes study of the kinematics and dynamics robotic manipulators and mobile robots, spatial orientation representations, Denavit-Hartenberg link descriptions, forward and inverse kinematics, Jacobian rate and static force relations, singularities, recursive Newton-Euler and Lagrange dynamics algorithms as well as trajectory planning for classical manipulators. Additional material on filtering and design of mobile robotic platforms is covered with an emphasis on integration of the sensing and control systems with the mechanical design.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
