Teaching language

Suitable for English-speaking students


This discipline seeks to transmit the knowledge requiered to the modeling, control and programm robotic manipulators.

Learning outcomes and competences

By the end of this course the student will be able to:

- Conduct a kinematic and dynamic analysis of a robotic manipulator - Understand alghoritms for position and force control

- Programm industrial manipulators

Working method



* Technological aspects of Robotics: configuration of manipulators, sensors and actuators (electric, pneumatic and hydraulic-oil)

* Analysis of Kinematics and Dynamics.

* Principles of Robot Control: Control position; force control

* Types of trajectories: interpolation in joint space, interpolation in Cartesian space

* Robotics Programming Languages

* Applications of Industrial Robots: Process: welding, cutting, grinding, assembly operations and handling operations

* Specification Robots: Characteristics of repeatability, accuracy, speed, capacity, weight, range, dimensions, workspace, feeds, controller, and communications interfaces, external controllable axes.

* Automated  Guided industrial Vehicles.

* Robotic cells  and automated warehouses.

* Quaternion and its application to robotic manipulators.

Eligibility for exams

The general rules applied at FEUP, presence at laboratory classes, active participation in pratical works with individual report aproval.

Calculation formula of final grade

Final exam: 75%
Mini-test: 25%

Examinations or Special Assignments

Pratical works with individual report aproval.
The work consists of the development, in simulation, of a robotic cell and  programming the manipulator to perform a specified task. Later the developed program will be implemented and tested in a real manipulator.

Classification improvement

Only the final exame avaliation can be improved,


The Final Exam will assess the CDIO Syllabus 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5.

Practical work (in group) will enable to develop skills CIO 2.4, 2.5 and 3.1
