Lecture 7: Robot Kinematics and Control – 10/27 5pm CH313B

Lecture location this week:  Clement Hall 313-B

This week’s lecture will be a little different.  Dr. Canfield will be covering robot kinematics and control.  In short, kinematics is characterizing how the robot moves.  Each robotic platform has differing movement patterns (e.g. traditional car steering versus skid-steering).  During this lecture, we will be in the computer lab CH313B.  Dr. Canfield will be walking us through how to simulate the kinematics and some control.
