Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Analysis of the requirements for the design or modification of the technical system. Transform input requirements into detailed list of requirements with measurable parameters. Knowledge of structure of typical robotic systems and their basic components. Methodology of technical system design.

Teaching methods

Project work


Students will be acquainted with the methodology of the design process and its preparation. They will try theoretically and practically to transform a specification on a new design or modification of an existing technical system into a detailed requirements list. Furthermore, the creation of concept and variant solutions and their objective evaluation will be presented. Subsequently, students will learn the basic structures and elements of industrial robots and their peripheral devices, basic structures and components of service robots. The end of the semester will be devoted to the introduction of suppliers of basic components and evaluation of a success rate of the design process.
