Innledning

This course provides a hands-on experience with the application of novel theories and methods into a specific system in robotics and control. The application topic will be tightly connected to on-going research projects and the relevant laboratories at OsloMet. The topic will be announced one semester prior to the start of the course.

The course comprises of a review of the research challenge, lectures on state-of-the-art theories and methods used in the design of the specific application, practical aspects for the development work. The project work will be in real or virtual laboratory environment. Students will get a holistic perspective on research and development work and hands-on experience with the cutting-edge technologies.

Anbefalte forkunnskaper

Student's scientific background should comply with the the admission requirements of the robotics and control specialization. It is highly recommended that the student has previous knowledge in mathematics, programming, robotics and control. It is recommended that the student has taken the courses ACIT4810 Advanced Methods in Modelling, Simulation, and Control, ACIT4820 Applied Robotics, and Autonomous Systems and ACIT4830 Special Robotics and Control Subject.

Forkunnskapskrav

No formal requirements over and above the admission requirements.

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  • have advanced knowledge of novel theories and methods for a specific robotics and control application
  • knowledge in practical aspects for the development work.

Skills

Upon successful completion of the course, the student:

  • can assess suitability of different theories and methods for the specific robotics and control application
  • can apply novel theories and methods for the specific robotics and control system 
  • can design and implement the chosen algorithms, software and hardware for the specific robotics and control application.

General competence

Upon successful completion of the course, the student:

  • can analyze, present and debate the possible novel solutions for a robotics and control project in light of the theoretical and practical approaches

Innhold

Topics covered in this course

  • Application of novel theories and methods into a specific system in robotics and control. 
  • Project work related to current research projects at the Mechanical, Electronic and Chemical Engineering department and related laboratories at OsloMet. 

Arbeids- og undervisningsformer

This course will feature weekly lectures and laboratory work to provide both theoretical and hands-on experience. The course responsible will introduce the project topic at the beginning of the semester. The project work will be carried out in groups of a size suited for the assignment (between 2 and 6 students) and focused around the relevant laboratories at OsloMet. The student will supplement the lectures and laboratory work with their own reading and project work.  

Arbeidskrav og obligatoriske aktiviteter

The following required coursework must be approved before the student can take the exam:

  • Four assignments in groups (1000 - 2000 words per assignment).  

Vurdering og eksamen

Exam in two parts: 

1)     Group project report (3000-5000 words per student). The project report counts as 80% of the final grade. 

2)     Individual project presentation of student's contribution to the project (10 minutes). The oral examination counts as 20% of the final grade 

Both exams must be passed in order to pass the course.

The oral examination cannot be appealed. 

 

New/postponed exam

In case of failed exam or legal absence, the student may apply for a new or postponed exam. New or postponed exams are offered within a reasonable time span following the regular exam. The student is responsible for registering for a new/postponed exam within the time limits set by OsloMet. The Regulations for new or postponed examinations are available in Regulations relating to studies and examinations at OsloMet.

Hjelpemidler ved eksamen

All aids are permitted, provided the rules for plagiarism and source referencing are complied with.

Vurderingsuttrykk

Grade scale A-F.

Sensorordning

Two internal examiners. External examiner is used periodically.

Emneansvarlig

The course main teacher will be one of the teachers in the Robotics and Control specialization. Questions can be sent to specialization coordinator, Professor Tiina Komulainen.
