The world needs people who understand how to get robots moving. Making robots move requires mathematical knowledge and programming skills. In this course, we get started on the problem of describing where things are in the world. We’ll start simply and consider the case of objects in a two-dimensional plane. We’ll then dive into control theory and begin to model dynamic systems including the electric motors and gearboxes that go into a robot. The skills you learn and the tools we use will be essential for completing the practical MATLAB exercises.

À l’École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, un cours de mécanique fait partie de la formation de tous les futurs ingénieurs et scientifiques. Il a pour but de leur apprendre à transcrire sous forme mathématique un phénomène physique, afin de pouvoir en formuler une analyse raisonnée. Cette partie couvrira notamment la cinématique du point matériel, la balistique dans le champ de la pesanteur et l’oscillateur harmonique.

Cette partie traite la mécanique du solide indéformable. Dans certains établissements, cette matière est vue avec une application des torseurs. Aussi, nous avons inclus dans cette partie un supplément de formation sur ce sujet. Deux leçons introduisent les torseurs.

The movement of bodies in space (like spacecraft, satellites, and space stations) must be predicted and controlled with precision in order to ensure safety and efficacy. Kinematics is a field that develops descriptions and predictions of the motion of these bodies in 3D space. This course in Kinematics covers four major topic areas: an introduction to particle kinematics, a deep dive into rigid body kinematics in two parts (starting with classic descriptions of motion using the directional cosine matrix and Euler angles, and concluding with a review of modern descriptors like quaternions and Classical and Modified Rodrigues parameters).

This course is an advanced study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. We will study the dynamics of rigid bodies in 3D motion. This will consist of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion. Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time. Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion.

Learn the core techniques for representing robots that perform physical tasks in the real world. We think of Robotics as the science of building devices that physically interact with their environment. The most useful robots do it precisely, powerfully, repeatedly, tirelessly, fast, or some combinations of these. The most interesting robots maybe even do it intelligently. This course will cover the fundamentals of robotics, focusing on both the mind and the body.
