Teaching and Research Labs

Robotics Teaching Laboratory

The Robotics Teaching Laboratory is a multi-purpose laboratory for teaching and student projects. The laboratory is equipped with three direct-drive robots, one 7-dof redundant manipular and one zebra zero robot.

Experiments to be conducted include:
forward and inverse kinematics, including joint singularities, of open-chain manipulators
trajectory generation and motion planning for assembly tasks
modelling and trajectory tracking control of robotic manipulators in a structured environment
force control and hybrid position/force control
task-level robot programming for assembly tasks and other related manufacturing tasks
robot vision/arm coordination
machine-intelligence and sensing strategies
