    OVERVIEW

    Recall of basics of mechanical engineering design. Introduction to methods and tools used in the design of robotic systems. Examples. Development of a design case during the course.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    This course presents the overview of the design process-specification, conceptual design, product design. The students will learn basic principles of industrial robot design.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Understanding the relation between use, function and design, starting from simple items and scaling up to robotic systems. Understanding the steps in engineering design of mechanical and mechatronic devices: components and systems; the scope for the student is to become able to manage a design process and to be part of the staff involved: not to be become a designer themselves but to collaborate with designers. Get skills in geometric modelling, adding of functional information, run of structural and multibody simulations using SW for computer aided engineering (CREO of PTC is currently adopted). Develop a design case through the course up to 3D printing and presentation and communication of the process and results.

    PREREQUISITES

    None

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures and classes. Telcos. Class work. Lab work. Home work.

    The classwork consists in a simple mechanical system developed to physical model: the 30% continuous assessment consists in ranking this model vs functions and tasks assigned

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    In two parts:

    + written: modelling of an item using the SW for 3D modelling thaught in the course: this is then discussed and evaluated as first part of the exam

    + oral: presentation of the classwork developed during the semester: discussion and questions. The classwork is common to more students in a group: this is taken into account and the focus is on questions answered by the student

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Continuous assessment during the semester: 30%

    Assessent of performance at the interview: 70%
