Introduction / Overview:

The course will start with a brief introduction to robotics. The motivation behind robotics will be discussed. Applications of robots in different areas like in manufacturing units, medical science, space, and others, will be discussed. Various methods of robot teaching will be explained with some suitable examples. Both forward and inverse kinematics problems will be solved with the help of some suitable examples. To ensure smooth variation of joint angles of the robot, trajectory planning schemes will be explained. Inverse dynamics problems of robots will be solved using Lagrange – Euler formulation. Control scheme used in robots to realize the joint torques will be discussed. The working principles of various sensors used in robots will be explained. The steps to be followed in robot vision will be discussed with some suitable examples. The principles of motion planning algorithms will be explained in detail.

Program Objectives:

The course would help the academicians to learn the fundamentals of Robotics including exposure to some softwares like ADAMS, ORIGIN, COMSOL etc. Thus, this course will deal with all the issues related to kinematics, dynamics, control schemes and robot intelligence. There will be Laboratory classes, in which some experiments will be carried out using real robots. Some research issues in Robotics and applications will be discussed.

About IIT Kharagpur:

Kharagpur – a dusty town tucked away in the eastern corner of India, famous until 1950 as home to the longest railway platform in the world became the nursery, where the seed of the IIT system was planted in 1951. IIT Kharagpur started its journey in the old Hijli Detention Camp in Eastern India, where some of the country’s great freedom fighters toiled and sacrificed their lives for India’s independence. Spurred by the success of IIT Kharagpur, four younger IITs sprouted around the country in the two following decades, and from these five came thousands of IITians, the brand ambassadors of modern India. It was the success of this one institution at Kharagpur that wrote India’s technological odyssey. The Institute takes pride in its relentless effort to provide the best platform for both education as well as research in the areas of science and technology, infrastructure designs, entrepreneurship, law, management, and medical science and technology. IITKGP is not just the place to study technology, it is the place where students are taught to dream about the future of technology and beam across disciplines, making differences enough to change the world.
