Introduction to Space Robotics
Prerequisite: ENAE301 or ENES221. Recommended: ENAE432. Introduction to the kinematics, dynamics, and control of robot manipulators. DH parameters, serial and parallel manipulators, kinematic redundancy, sensors, actuators, and mechanism design. Control concepts introduced ranging from independent joint control to impedance control. Examples drawn from space robotics, wearable robotics, and other areas.
