Manipulator Control, PD Control Stability, Task Oriented Control, Task Oriented Equations of Motion, Operational Space Dynamics, Example, Nonlinear Dynamic Decoupling, Trajectory Tracking
The purpose of this course is to introduce you to basics of modeling, design, planning, and control of robot systems. In essence, the material treated in this course is a brief survey of relevant results from geometry, kinematics, statics, dynamics, and control. The course is presented in a standard format of lectures, readings and problem sets. Lectures will be based mainly, but not exclusively, on material in the Lecture Notes. Lectures will follow roughly the same sequence as the material presented in the notes, so it can be read in anticipation of the lectures. Topics: robotics foundations in kinematics, dynamics, control, motion planning, trajectory generation, programming and design. Prerequisites: matrix algebra.
One of the world's leading universities, Stanford was founded in 1885 in what is now Stanford, California. It is comprised of seven schools, four of which are devoted exclusively to graduate education. Stanford's most renowned programs include the Graduate School of Business, Law School, School of Engineering, and School of Medicine. Notable alumni include author John Steinbeck, Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist, and Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
