41068 Robotics Studio 16cp; 4hpw, on campus, weekly
Requisite(s): 41012 Programming for Mechatronic Systems AND 41014c Sensors and Control for Mechatronic Systems
The lower case 'c' after the subject code indicates that the subject is a corequisite. See definitions for details.
The focus of this studio is to develop skills in the critique, design and application of modern estimation methods in robotics and mechatronic systems. Understanding the functionality, capabilities, limitations and ramifications of modern engineering tools, such as estimation methods, is critical for an engineer. This studio also extends the use of design analysis to apply estimation methods in the context of system design.
To achieve this, students apply design processes to break a mechatronics problem down into its constituent parts to discover the requirements for an estimation solution, and then apply the appropriate techniques. Students are expected to use engineering principles to analyse the system and provide engineering critique on the suitability of the design and to justify the design choices made.
