CET722 Robot Control

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



Nonlinear robot control systems and their design and analysis are essential in robot dynamic systems. Therefore, it is important to learn advanced nonlinear robot manipulators and their control systems. The objective of this course is to introduce learners with advanced topics in nonlinear control of robot manipulators. The focus is to provide learners with the knowledge and skills in design and analysis of nonlinear robot control systems. This course also covers hybrid position and force control in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of the topic.

This course is part of:
Graduate Certificate in Computer Control and Automation
- FlexiMasters in Computer Control and Automation

Upon completion, learners should:

1.Able to obtain the robot dynamic equations using Lagrange-Euler equations; 

2. Able to design nonlinear controllers for robot manipulators and;

3. Able to understand the effects of control gains on the performance of the robot system.

Robot Dynamics. Nonlinear control method: Performance specifications; Control law partitioning; Hybrid Position and Force control. 

Automation Engineers for upgrading and Engineers who wish to switch to the automation field.
