M E 380R M E 380R. Robot Mechanism Design. 3 Hours.

Examines analysis and synthesis of motions of mechanisms in order to design robotic systems. Motion properties of mechanisms including degrees of freedom, velocity, and acceleration will be studied. Discusses design ideas and motion analysis for robotic systems for a wide range of applications including spatial, industrial and medical robotics. Simulates and analyzes motions of multi-link mechanisms in the MATLAB programming environment. Design and build robots with interesting mechanisms and mechatronics elements as part of group projects. Studies machining, assembly, mechatronics and programming through the projects. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Mechanical Engineering 380R and 397 (Topic: Robot Mechanism Design) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Graduate Standing.
