Welcome to the Introduction to Robotics Lab webpage
Lab sessions are to start on Monday 04-March-2013.
The Lab room is EEL02 for both groups 1 and 2.
There will be NO lab sessions during the Midterm Examination period. Therefore, lab sessions will be continued starting on Monday 15-April-2013.
Experiment names and Description
Introduction To MATLAB
1. The use of m files
2. Some basic MATLAB commands
3. MATLAB variables and functions
4. Plotting functions and labeling
1. Creating Symbolic variables and Expressions
2. Defining symbolic matrices
Solving Algebraic and Differential Equations
1. Using MATLAB for solving set of algebraic equations
2. Solving differential equations with initial conditions
3. Simplification of the results
The Use of Laplace Transformation to Solve Differential Equations
This experiment introduces using MATLAB for defining and solving differential equation using the Laplace transformation approach, as well as plotting the obtained solutions.
Defining Simple Transformation Matrix
Using MATLAB to define a transformation matrix which represents rotation a round a specific axis through a particular angle
Writing a complete MATLAB Program to compute 4X4 homogenous transformation matrix represents rotation around axes x, or y or z or a given vector with a specific angle (theta)
Euler Transformation and Link Transformation
Writing MATLAB Program to perform and compute Euler and the link transformation. Here inputs will be the link parameters and outputs will be 4X4 homogenous matrix represents the links positions
Grading Policy & Guidelines
*10% of the whole course grade is dedicated to this lab.
*The lab grade is divided as follows:
50% for repoers, 30 % for the final exams and 20% for performance.
Besides, attendance is compulsory and each student has the right of only one makup.
Also, a student need to pass the lab, in order to pass the course.
Laboratory experiments are designed to give students a clear insight to some useful MATLAB prgramming capabilities that serve the theoritical knowledge of the course.
