Models - You will learn how to write the kinematic and the dynamic equations that describe a robotic grasp.

Research - You will be guided through the cutting-edge research challenges regarding robotic manipulation and grasping.

Control - You will learn how to control the fingers of a robotic hand, or a team of robots, to grasp, manipulate, and move objects.

Exercises - You will see the application of theoretical concepts to practical exercises with MATLAB® and robotic platforms.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
COURSE OUTLINE

Session 2

Direct and Inverse Kinematic
This session focuses on the derivation of the direct kinematics equation through a systematic, general approach based on linear algebra and on the derivation of solutions to the inverse kinematics problem, which consists of the determination of the joint variables corresponding to a given end-effector pose

Session 3

Differential kinematics
This session focuses on differential kinematics which gives the relationship between the joint velocities and the corresponding end-effector linear and angular velocity

Session 1

Localisation in 3D spaces
This session focuses on position and orientation representation for rigid objects 

Session 4

Trajectory planning
This session focuses on generating reference inputs to the motion control system which ensures that the manipulator executes the planned trajectories

Gionata Salvietti received the M.S. degree in Robotics and Automation and the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Siena, Siena, Italy, in 2009 and 2012, respectively. He was a post-doc researcher with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia from 2012 to 2015. He was a Visiting Researcher with the DLR Institute for Robotic and Mechatronics, in 2012 and a Visiting Student with TAMS Group, University of Hamburg, in 2008. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics, University of Siena. His research interests are robotic and human grasping, collaborative robotics, assistive devices, and haptics.
