The course Robotics: Dynamics and Control is an online class provided by University of Pennsylvania through edX. The skill level of the course is Advanced. It may be possible to receive a verified certification or use the course to prepare for a degree.
Learn how to design and engineer complex, dynamic robotic systems.
Course description Flying drones or robot manipulators accomplish heavy-duty tasks that deal with considerable forces and torques not covered by a purely robot kinematics framework. Learn how to formulate dynamics problems and design appropriate control laws. In this course, part of the Robotics MicroMasters program, you will learn how to develop dynamic models of robot manipulators, mobile robots, and drones (quadrotors), and how to design intelligent controls for robotic systems that can grasp and manipulate objects. We will cover robot dynamics, trajectory generation, motion planning, and nonlinear control, and develop real-time planning and control software modules for robotic systems. This course will give you the basic theoretical tools and enable you to design control algorithms. Using MATLAB, you will apply what you have learned through a series of projects involving real-world robotic systems.
To obtain a verified certificate from edX / University of Pennsylvania you have to finish this course or the latest version of it, if there is a new edition. The class may be free of charge, but there could be some cost to receive a verified certificate (349.00 USD) or to access the learning materials. The specifics of the course may have been changed, please consult the provider to get the latest quotes and news.
