The purpose of this course is to analyze the concepts of modeling, design, planning, and control of robotic systems. The student will evaluate robotics and control design decisions specific to unmanned systems, including remotely operated and autonomous unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and unmanned space systems. Course topics include robotics foundations in kinematics, dynamics, control, motion planning, trajectory generation, programming, telemetry, sensor integration, remote operation, and design. Course applications include task and motion planning for utilization within unmanned system technology.

The course is designed to provide the student an understanding of the concept of modeling, design, planning, and control of robotics as they relate to unmanned aircraft and space systems. The student will examine the robotics and control design decisions specific to unmanned systems, including analysis of robots, sensing and programmed response, mobile robots, kinematics and dynamics, localization and navigation. The student will comprehend theoretical aspects of kinematics, dynamics, and controls of robotic systems. Students will apply intelligent control and fuzzy logic principles while demonstrating a comprehension of central processing. The student will understand the basic sensory, interaction, and processing equipment for robotic systems and work with components and tools used in the current industry. The students will be able to enhance the performance of robotic systems by augmenting with sensors and custom programming. Upon completion of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of the terminology, concepts and vocabulary of unmanned systems and robotics.

1. Evaluate the various elements that comprise a robotic system.

2. Analyze the major elements of robotics development, including modeling, design, and control of robotics systems.

3. Analyze and evaluate fundamental concepts of mobile robotics—kinematics, dynamics, localization, navigation, sensing and control.

4. Analyze the state-of-art in computer-aided robotics – forward and inverse kinematics, trajectory planning, teleoperation, sensing, intelligence and control.

5. Formulate analytical notions to the structural and control design of robotic manipulation.

6. Analyze the basic sensory, interaction, and processing equipment for robotic systems.

7. Analyze, evaluate and enhance the performance of robotic systems by augmenting with sensors and custom programming.

8. Formulate computational tools in the design of robotic system control and interaction.

9. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter (effective July 1, 2013)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
