Who should attend

This is an intensive, intermediate level course that suitable for professionals interested in gaining knowledge and skills in robotic systems. This course will be useful for engineering professionals, systems specialists, robotic project managers and R&D professionals.

About the course

This 5-day course is designed for professionals who wish to gain specialised knowledge in the integration and development of various components within intelligent robotic systems for a wide range application across various industries. The modules will benefit those working in various sectors, for example, in medical, manufacturing and defence industry.

Participants will gain in-depth knowledge in areas like understanding autonomous behaviour types in robotics, robotics sensory operations, understanding robotics mobility, and robotic path planning and fuzzy behaviors in robotics. There will be projects and assessment to reinforce participants’ learning as part of the course.

This course differs from other robotics courses as the emphasis is placed on practical and hands-on learning. This is to ensure that the contents taught have relevance to real-life applications.

The main highlights of this course include: (a) having the opportunity to physically configure and manipulate a ROS-enabled OpenManipulator-X robotic arm (as depicted below), and (b) having to physically configure sensory systems from scratch for this robotic arm.

Key Takeaways

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Acquire the fundamentals of robotics systems technology and control, including autonomous behaviors, sensory systems, mobility computation, path planning and state-of-the-art robotic behavior approaches.
  • Apply hands-on critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis to a wide range of robotic systems scenarios and problems.
  • Build robust robotic systems in diverse areas such as games, manufacturing, and defense.

What Will Be Covered

This course will cover:

  • Introduction to Robotic Systems.
  • Autonomous Behavior
  • Robotic Sensory Systems
  • Robotic Locomotion
  • Robotic Pathway Planning
  • Fuzzy Behavior
