Parts 1
Annotation Within subject there are analyzed statics, kinetics and dynamics of mobile robotized systems, which are designed according to naturally occurring live system similarity - people, insects, birds, fish, etc..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The objective of the course is to provide theoretical knowledge and practical skills in analysis of non-traditional movement schemes. Having finished the course a student is able to characterize the most widely applied robot movement schemes imitating biological systems, based on the use of two or more legs, flapping of wings, movement of fish.
