OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

It is currently widely recognized that a future much larger diffusion of robots for manufacturing will be achieved once the robotic research and development activities will have fully addressed the needs of SME manufacturers; which can be roughly summarized as follows - Cost effectiveness at low lot sizes - Intuitive to be used - Easily adaptable to a wide variety of application tasks - Easily reconfigurable kinematic structure, whenever needed With the last three of the above points to be moreover operated by non-specialized personnel. In this perspective it is also recognized that a substantial answer to the mentioned needs should relay on the development of modularly configurable robotic structures, which should also exhibit motion self-organizing properties ,once assembled.in the desired configuration. Still in the mentioned perspective, the present course is therefore intended for providing the students with the fundamental mechatronic concepts and related technologies enabling the the realization of reconfigurable modular robotic structures; as well as the internally distributed (within the automatically connected computational units resulting from the assembly) self-organizing control methods and related algorithms.
