Robotics and visionThe Robotics and Vision minor gives you an opportunity to acquire a fundamental knowledge of and a basic skillset for defining various types of robots, designing and constructing vision systems, and applying advanced control techniques. It also teaches you how to use robotic operating systems (ROS) in order to implement robotic software, and 3D prototyping in order to develop a robot, or parts of a robot, for proof-of-principle purposes.

You may enrol for the Robotics and Vision minor if you are attending one of the following full-time study programmes:

  • Mechatronics;
  • Electrical Engineering;
  • Mechanical Engineering.

Admission criterion
You must have passed the first year of one of the above bachelor programmes. 

In order to pass the minor, you must satisfy all the various requirements relating to the modules and the project that forms part of the minor.

You will learn about the following aspects of robotics and vision systems during this minor:

  • modelling and control of various types of robots;
  • design and implementation of advanced controllers;
  • design and development of vision systems (hardware and software).

The minor runs over two successive terms. You are required to follow three compulsory modules and also to complete a project. 

The modules are as follows and last for the duration of both terms:

  • dynamic modelling of robots (industrial robots, ground and aerial robots);
  • path planning and motion/interaction control of robots;
  • analysis of low-order linear and linearised systems;
  • design and implementation of advanced, high-performance controllers that are both robust and easily adaptable to different systems;
  • design and development of general-purpose and application-specific vision systems;
  • development of a vison-based robot application in accordance with a systems engineering approach;
  • use of a robotic operating system (ROS) to build robotic software;
  • design and development of a proof-of-priciple 3D prototype for a robot, or parts of a robot.

Assessment is based on a mix of individual and group assignments, practical exercises, individual written and online examinations and project assignments.
