Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to provide students with basic information in the field of mechanization and automation of production machines, industrial robotics and robot technology. After studying the module the student should be able to describe basic principles of function, construction and operation of industrial robots, their subsystems and structural elements. He should be able to design a robot / robot control system, program it and incorporate it into a robotic cell.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs
Project work
Other activities


The subject is focused on historical development, basic description of structures, topologies, subsystems and properties of industrial robots and manipulators. It provides overview and classification of mechanical constructions, motion, control and sensor subsystems. It describes their current application in production, the structure of workplaces, significant parameters, economic efficiency and perspectives and social aspects of deployment. In the practical part of laboratory measurements it deals with programming-modeling and control of industrial robot movements in basic tasks.

IRaM activity control, control system structure, feedback, position control, sequence control. 11. IRaM sensors - general properties, human sensors, robot system sensors, external / internal sensors, position sensors, speed, acceleration, force, pressure, radiation, temperature, flow, examples of robot sensors. 12. Application of IRaM in production, structure of workplaces with IRaM, parameters of IRaM, economic efficiency of IRaM deployment, perspectives and social aspects of IRaM deployment. Labs: Robotics laboratories are designed for groups of up to 10 students who solve practical robotic tasks individually or in pairs during the semester. Students will be familiar with practical robotics (industrial robot, manipulator) and with the methods of virtual programming of industrial robots and robotic workplaces, using the knowledge gained in basic subjects (eg mathematics, physics, electronics, software development).
