Examination methods

Seminar paper and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. assess the applicability of robots in production processes and services

2. formulate kinetic models of robot manipulators based on their mechanical specifications using the Denavit-Hartenberg method

3. list types of actuators and sensors which are commonly used in robotics and explain the basic applications of sensors in robotics

4. develop a simple computer programme for robot manipulator control

5. explain the basic principles of genetic algorithms

6. perform experimental testing of an artificial neural network for a particular application
