Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
The following topics are defined in the lecture and discussed using practical examples:
- Coordinate systems (Denavit-Hartenberg convention)
- Forward kinematics (relationship: joint rotation to manipulator motion)
- Inverse kinematics (relationship: manipulator motion to joint rotations)
- Newton-Euler/Lagrange analysis of the dynamic state in the joints
- Dynamic modeling of the manipulator (mathematical model (MVG) for motion analysis)
- PID control of position and force
They should also be able to explain the meaning and mathematical relationship to the above model for the control parameters of a PID controller for a robotic system and determine their optimal values for a position and force controller.
- Differential calculus
- Basic knowledge of physics (Newton's Law, etc.)
