May 1 - Day 3: Multi-Axes Control Architectures

The next step in complexity is combining several axes to perform a coordinated motion. This class reviews the different concepts that can be used. The motion control example for a delta robot illustrates how high-level multi-axes control can be achieved.

April 30 - Day 2: DC Motor Data Sheets & Selection Rules

This class starts with a short review on DC motor design types and their properties. We will look at the operational limits of DC motors and their behavior. A practical motor selection example will illustrate what we have learned up to this point.

April 29 - Day 1: A Systematic Approach to Drive Selection

This class will provide a framework for drive selection. We will review the general requirements of drives used in robotic systems. We will deal systematically with the selection criteria of an individual axis, including power and mechanics, as well as control and environmental aspects.
