General Information

Elective for: M4-pr, MD4, Pi4
Language of instruction: The course will be given in English on demand


The purpose of the course is to give basic knowledge in industrial robotics where theory is applied on industrial applied problems. The purpose is to provide an understanding on how theory within the subject of the course can be applied in a practical way from an engineering point of view to create models for analysis, simulation and programming, and create solutions on problems which focus on efficient use of robots in industry.

The course is based on projects and focuses, in principle, on three problem areas: (1) Design of manufacturing systems with robots, (2) Programming and simulation of a robot and (3) Modelling of robots. The problem areas are defined in more detail at the start of each course. Within the problem areas, the following will in general be studied: characteristic features of robots with emphasis on the use in industry, programming and methods used in calibration and simulation, modelling and analysis of robot structures, use of robots in industry with adaptation and integration to processes, end-effectors and tools, safety and peripherals.

Examination details

Grading scale: TH
Assessment: Each student will present results from project tasks in the course as a report, models and/or simulations at completion of each project. These are in general performed individual or in groups of two students in each group. The result from each project work is evaluated and the final course evaluation is calculated as a weighted mean value of these. The assessment is based on results from the tasks in the projects and these can, after agreement with the teacher, be complemented with additional work if not passed during the first assessment.
