Description: Robots, as seen in many different forms, can help people in various application scenarios to improve the efficiency, safety, and quality of task executions. In particular, those robots which can physically interact with the world possess essential skills, called manipulation, to engage themselves more comprehensively in the real-world tasks. For example, robots with manipulation skills can help us in factories, kitchens, hospitals, warehouses, constructions sites, and even in space or on another planet. This course will introduce both fundamental and the state-of-the-art knowledge that enable robots to manipulate in our world. Topics including robot motions, kinematics, dynamics, simulation and ROS, hand and grasping, prehensile and nonprehensile manipulation, robot control, and interactive estimation, will be covered. Significant programming projects are involved to facilitate converting the textbook knowledge to solid hands-on experiences. Cross-list: COMP 462. Recommended Prerequisite(s): COMP 450 or 550 Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for COMP 562 if student has credit for COMP 462.
