MTRN9224Robot DesignGUIDELINESMonday, March 1, 2004Tomonari FurukawaSchool of Mechanical and Manufacturing EngineeringUniversity of New South Wales1 OBJECTIVEThe course is aimed at giving an opportunity to learn about how to design and build a robot fromscratch.Unlike other courses, which rather focus on providing scientific knowledge of specificdisciplines (analysis), students will learn how to synthesize their mechanical and electronicalknowledge for practical mechatronic engineering.Three robot design projects are the core part ofthe course.The successful accomplishment of the projects will bring the following knowledge andcapabilities to the students:zDesign of an appropriate robot systemzFormulation of appropriate equations for the systemzSelection of appropriate actuators and sensors for the systemzValidation and verification of the performance of the system2 ORGANISATION2.1 Lectures and TutorialsLecturer:Tomonari FurukawaOffice: #M7, Wills Annexe Bldg., J18, Phone: 9385-6091E-mail:[email protected]Tutors:Tim Vittor2MaterialsThe lecture notes, which include tutorial questions in the last page, will be distributed in thelecture.They are also downloadable from the course website.Additional tutorial questions may begiven in a different handout.Timetable and course outlineTimetable for lectures and tutorials is provided in the table below.You need to attend all thelectures and tutorials to fully understand this in a way that the lecturer has arranged.Table 1 Timetable for lectures and tutorialsDateTimePlaceLecturer / TutorLectureMon14:00 – 15:30CLB-4Tomonari FurukawaTutorialMon15:40 – 17:00CLB-4Tim VittorTomonari FurukawaTable 2 Course outlineWeekDateLecture and Tutorial Contents14:00 – 17:00Materials11/3 IntroductionLecture 128/3Base of wheeled robotsLecture 2315/3Kinematic fundamentals of wheeled robotsLecture 3423/3 Project 1Project 1530/3Dynamics and motor selection of wheeled robotsLecture 465/4 Motor controlLecture 5Project 2719/4 MicrocontrollersLecture 6826/4 BatteriesLecture 793/5 Project 2 presentation-1010/5 Sensor technologiesLecture 8Project 31117/5 Vision sensorsLecture 91224/5Legged robot dynamics and controlLecture 101331/5 Project 3 presentation-147/6 Consultation3 ASSESSMENTThe assessment is shown in Table 3.A maximum of 5 marks will be given by submitting a smallreport at every tutorial.There are three projects, Projects 1, 2 and 3.Project 1 is an individualproject where it is assessed only through the report.
