|Calendar Description||This course provides a comprehensive treatment on the fundamentals of robotic manipulators and mobile robots. Topics include: homogeneous transformations, the Denavit-Hartenberg representation of linkages, solution of the forward kinematics problem. Closed-form and numerical solutions of the inverse kinematics problem. Differential kinematics and motion, Jacobian matrix, singularities. Kinematic and dynamic model of mobile robots. Path planning, trajectory planning and motion control for mobile robots.|
|Prerequisites||ELE 639 or MEC 709|
|Learning Objectives (Indicators)|
At the end of this course, the successful student will be able to:
NOTE:Numbers in parentheses refer to the graduate attributes required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).
3.0 hours of lecture per week for 13 weeks
|Teaching Assistants||For Sections 012, 042, 052: Somayeh Barzegar, email@example.com|
For Sections 022, 032: Sara Salamat, firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: In order for a student to pass a course, a minimum overall course mark of 50% must be obtained. In addition, for courses that have both "Theory and Laboratory" components, the student must pass the Laboratory and Theory portions separately by achieving a minimum of 50% in the combined Laboratory components and 50% in the combined Theory components. Please refer to the "Course Evaluation" section above for details on the Theory and Laboratory components (if applicable).
|Examinations||Mid-Term exam will be announced on D2L. Final exam will be held during exam period.|
|Other Evaluation Information||None|
|Other Information||Lecture and laboratory schedules are tentative and subject to change. Consult D2L for updates. Laboratory work requires the use of a Linux virtual machine that runs on Windows OS. See the Laboratory Manual on hardware and software requirements.|

Students are reminded that they are required to adhere to all relevant university policies found in their online course shell in D2L and/or on the Senate website
You can submit an Academic Consideration Request when an extenuating circumstance has occurred that has significantly impacted your ability to fulfill an academic requirement. You may always visit the Senate website and select the blue radio button on the top right hand side entitled: Academic Consideration Request (ACR) to submit this request.
For Extenuating Circumstances, Policy 167: Academic Consideration allows for a once per semester ACR request without supporting documentation if the absence is less than 3 days in duration and is not for a final exam/final assessment. Absences more than 3 days in duration and those that involve a final exam/final assessment, require documentation. Students must notify their instructor once a request for academic consideration is submitted. See Senate Policy 167: Academic Consideration.
Academic Accommodation Support (AAS) is the university's disability services office. AAS works directly with incoming and returning students looking for help with their academic accommodations. AAS works with any student who requires academic accommodation regardless of program or course load.
Academic Accommodations (for students with disabilities) and Academic Consideration (for students faced with extenuating circumstances that can include short-term health issues) are governed by two different university policies. Learn more about Academic Accommodations versus Academic Consideration and how to access each.
At Toronto Metropolitan University, we recognize that things can come up throughout the term that may interfere with a student’s ability to succeed in their coursework. These circumstances are outside of one’s control and can have a serious impact on physical and mental well-being. Seeking help can be a challenge, especially in those times of crisis.
If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911 and go to the nearest hospital emergency room. You can also access these outside resources at anytime:
If non-crisis support is needed, you can access these campus resources:
We encourage all Toronto Metropolitan University community members to access available resources to ensure support is reachable. You can find more resources available through the Toronto Metropolitan University Mental Health and Wellbeing website.
