Department assigned to the subject: Department of Systems Engineering and Automation

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Students are expected to have completed
IndusIndustrial Robotics. Any signature related with computer programming.
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
To analyse and to understand the problematic ones associated with the specification of the movement associated with the programming of a task or application for any class of robot, already be industrial or of service. To check and to familiarize itself with the classic technologies of planning, centring on the planning before static environments, and the classic algorithms. Provide the student of the sufficient knowledge and interest to be able to approach this type of problems.
Description of contents: programme
1. Review of the programming task and movements. 2. Models of robots and environment 3. Classic aproaches of path-planning: 3.1. Configuration space 3.2. Potentials Fields 3.3. Roadmaps 3.4. Celd Decomposition and probabilistical methods 3.5. Modification of the dynamic control 4. Case studies 5. Specialized seminars
Learning activities and methodology
After an lecture of problematic and classic technologies, a work of analysis and implementation of a classic technology is proposed to the student. The evaluation is based on of the exhibition and memory presented.
