Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the design of industrial and service robots, their selected elements and design procedures. The graduate of the course will get an idea of the design of selected robot nodes and the knowledge needed to select suitable construction elements.

Teaching methods

Project work


This course is a follow-up to the course Construction of robotic subsystems 1. Students will be acquainted with the design of industrial and service robots. Furthermore, they will be acquainted with selected elements of robots and procedures of their design and control calculations. The graduate of the course will get an idea of the design of selected robot nodes and the knowledge needed to select suitable construction elements.
