This course covers the knowledge and skills that an operator, technician, engineer or programmer needs to set up and program a robot. Recommended safety procedures are integrated into all training exercises. There are lectures, demonstrations and a series of lab exercises designed to reinforce what the student has learned. Prerequisite: ADMT112M.
Students will design a robot according to specifications for the functions and tasks the robot needs to complete. This will involve many critical features of the robot needed to meet the specified requirements. The course will cover the entire design processes, such as defining the problem, researching and designing, creating a prototype, building a robot, programming and testing and, finally, the evaluation of the robot design to the specifications. Prerequisite: MATH090M with a grade of “C” or better.
