MICRO-419 / 2 credits
Teacher: Bouri Mohamed
This course is devoted to exploration projects in concern with robotics and manufacturing. The students with interdisciplinary backgrounds will have to design new products and address new markets around topics such as open robotics, rehabilitation robotics and transport.
- Components of a robotic solution.
- Industry 4.0 for robotics and manufacturing
- May robotics improve the quality of life of people in their daily living ?
- Keynote talks from industrial R&D group leaders and CTOs of companies active in robotics and manufacturing
Robotics, manufacturing, industrial applications, medical robotic applications
Robotics & the future of manufacturing 1 (MCRO 418)
Basics of robotics for manipulation (MICRO 450)
By the end of the course, the student must be able to:
- Classify and define industrial robotics and manufacturing solutions
