 Study Objective:

The goal of the course is to introduce industrial robots and manipulators, their design, kinematics, statics, and control. The course is designed for future experts who will be able to control robot, design its electronics, and consult kinematical design. The ability to implement
geometry of the robot in programming language is emphasized.
