____________________________

This course provides the theory and technology of robots as used in manufacturing and production. Various configurations of robotic manipulators, power supplies, and effectors and programming devices/methods will be discussed. Students will be introduced to vision guidance and inspection as it applies to robotics. During instructional laboratory sessions the student will receive hands-on knowledge based on text and lectures as students program the robot controllers to achieve useful robotic movements. Tests and analyses are performed on these student generated programs. PREREQUISITES: MAN 1211 Industrial Electricity and MAN 2211 Programmable Logic Controllers or consent of instructor.
