|The aim of this lecture is to expose students to the fundamentals of mechatronic and robotic systems. Over the course of these lectures, topics will include how to interface a computer with the real world, different types of sensors and their use, different types of actuators and their use.
|An ever-increasing number of mechatronic systems are finding their way into our daily lives. Mechatronic systems synergistically combine computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. Robotics systems can be viewed as a subset of mechatronics that focuses on sophisticated control of moving devices.
The aim of this course is to practically and theoretically expose students to the fundamentals of mechatronic and robotic systems. Over the course of the semester, the lecture topics will include an overview of robotics, an introduction to different types of sensors and their use, the programming of microcontrollers and interfacing these embedded computers with the real world, signal filtering and processing, an introduction to different types of actuators and their use, an overview of computer vision, and forward and inverse kinematics. Throughout the course, students will periodically attend laboratory sessions and implement lessons learned during lectures on real mechatronic systems. By the end of the course, you will be able to independently choose, design and integrate these different building blocks into a working mechatronic system.
|The course consists of weekly lectures and lab sessions. The weekly topics are the following:
0. Course Introduction
1. C Programming
3. Data Acquisition
4. Signal Processing
5. Digital Filtering
7. Computer Vision and Kinematics
8. Modeling and Control
9. Review and Outlook
The lecture schedule can be found on our course page on the MSRL website (www.msrl.ethz.ch)
|Prerequisites / Notice
|The students are expected to be familiar with C programming.
