ME 302 - Introduction to Robotics I

This course is an introduction to robotics. The main purpose is to develop in future roboticist the ability to analyze and model the kinematic behavior of simple and redundant kinematic chains and mobile robot manipulators. This requires presenting a rigorous analytic formulation based on fundamental linear algebra and calculus know-how. Emphasis is placed on methods lending themselves to the implementation of simple kinematic algorithms using the Matlab® scripting language and graphics built-in functions.
