Course Description

Knowledge and technology of the many fields are indispensable to design the robots. In this lecture, the mechanism, the control engineering, the electrical engineering, electronics and mechanics of materials which are needed to design the robots are shown
This lesson is related to DP4E

Course Objectives

Recently the robots are also known in our life in addition to the field of industry and the medical welfare. The principles of the sensors and the actuators and the kinematics which control the robots are learned in this lecture.
The students learn about now and the future of the robots.

Grading Policy

Students will be evaluated at 60% regular report and 40% report only if all reports are submitted.
Feedback and added explanations about points to be corrected when returning the report.

Textbook and Reference

TextbookText is distributed in LMS.


In class, students often watch videos to help students understand the content, and students are required to submit assignments in time.



1 Basic concept of robots and social significance:Investigate in advance what mechanism and control the fully automatic washing machine and automatic ticket gate are working on, and summarize them.
2History and present state of robots: Let's examine the origins of robots and the current state of industrial robots in advance and summarize them. Let's consider the fundamental difference between the control methods of Astro Boy and Tetsujin 28.
3Robots seen in daily life: Deepen the mechanisms and control methods of fully automatic washing machines and automatic ticket gates learned in the first class.
4Sensor type and principle: Check in advance why the camera is in focus and how to control the temperature of the air conditioner. Investigate the types and principles of sensors required for robots.
5Types and principles of actuators: Learn the types and operating principles of actuators such as motors and solenoids.
6Types of structural materials and mechanical properties: Learn the types and mechanical properties of structural materials such as steel, aluminum and carbon. It also mentions why the Jumbo Jet crash occurred.
7Disaster rescue robots: Consider the present and future of rescue robots based on the Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and the Great East Japan Earthquake.
