Course Summary

This course is relevant for students who already have a strong engineering background and wish to specialise in robotics and automation. You will gain a firm grounding in control engineering and intelligent systems concepts. You will develop the ability to comprehend and specify integrated automation systems embodying intelligence, robotic and automation hardware and software, and virtual reality/simulation technologies.

Delivered in the setting our of advanced robotics laboratories, practical experience you will gain includes the use of robotics platforms to produce a software system using MATLAB toolboxes or the C programming language to produce a finished hardware/software-based mobile robotics.

You will:

  • Be supported by a renowned academic team delivering internationally-leading research
  • Gain a firm grounding in control engineering and intelligent systems concepts
  • Critically review current autonomous intelligent robots
  • Learn to apply techniques including fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks and evolutionary computing.

TEACHING:

You will be taught via a series of lectures and workshops with many of the modules taught via extensive hands-on practical lab-based sessions.

Practical experience includes the use of robotics platforms to produce a software system using the MATLAB toolboxes or the C programming language or to produce a finished hardware/software based mobile robotics system.

ASSESSMENT:

70% coursework and 30% examination.
