Course Objectives: This course is designed to provide an exposure to the fundamentals of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Participants will learn kinemtics and dynamics of industrial manipulators, kinematics of mobile robots, trajectory planning, path planning and control and how to embed intelligence in robotic tasks. Hands-on training and practice sessions will help participants gain confidence on robotic concepts, their simulation and implementation including sessions on intelligent agents. The course will be useful for faculty of engineering and sciences who are interested in the learning robotics and intelligent systems.

Course contents: Introduction to Robotics: Components and mechanisms of a robotic system, Robot Manipulators, Mobile Robots, Aerial Robots, Applications. Forward and Inverse kinematics, Velocity Kinematics, Brief Idea of Manipulator Dynamics. Path and Trajectory Planning: Joint-space schemes, Cartesian-space schemes, Trajectory planning: PTP method, using Via points. Configuration space, path planning using potential fields, roadmap methods. Ostacle avoidance and Intelligent path planning. Linear and nonlinear robot control: Feedback Control: Proportional, Derivative and Integral Control, PID control, Lyapunov stability condition. trajectory-following control. Artificial Intelligence: Nature-inspired AI, Programming agents (with hands-on), Agent based control of robots/IoT (with hands-on and demos). Rigourous hands-on lab sessions on robot simulators will be conducted.

Who can attend: Programme is open to faculty from all colleges and universities preferably from the states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Maharashtra. Faculty members from other states are also eligible.
Industry personnel working in the concerned/allied discipline may also apply. Limited seats are available for research scholars.
