Fundamental methods for kinematic analysis and synthesis of robots are introduced. Classification of robots and their applications are also introduced focusing on the kinematic structures and characteristics.
Students can learn fundamental ideas and methods of mechanism design of robots through theoretical explanations and practices.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
(1) Analyze basic kinematic structures of robots in terms of degrees of freedom
(2) Analyze relationship between input and output in displacement and velocity of basic robot mechanisms
(3) Know structures of basic reduction gears used as driving components of robots and calculate their reduction ratio
(4) Obtain basic engineering senses for designing robots
