The purpose of this course is to provide a perspective on robotic technologies applied to (and inspired by) themes of biomedical research and practice. Robotics is a multidisciplinary technology, with elements from computer, electrical and mechanical engineering and with an increasing spectrum of biomedical applications. These include basic research in sensory-motor systems, advanced surgical and diagnostic techniques, human machine interfaces, robots for assistance and rehabilitation. In addition to learning the contents of the course, students are required to engage in different activities, including software development and scientific discussions in the classroom, both individually and in groups.
Lo scopo di questo corso è fornire una prospettiva sulle tecnologie robotiche applicate a (e ispirate da) temi di ricerca e pratica biomedica. La robotica è un ambito multidisciplinare, con elementi che afferiscono all'ingegneria informatica, elettrica e meccanica e con uno spettro crescente di applicazioni biomediche. La prima parte del corso intende fornire un insieme di nozioni generali per il controllo di dispositivi robotici. La seconda parte è dedicata all'analisi approfondita di applicazioni specifiche. Queste includono la ricerca di base sul sistema sensorimotorio, tecniche chirurgiche e diagnostiche avanzate, interfacce uomo-macchina, robot per l'assistenza e la riabilitazione, biorobotica
The purpose of this course is to provide a perspective on robotics technologies applied to (and inspired by) themes of biomedical research and practice. Robotics is a multidisciplinary domain, with elements from computer, electrical and mechanical engineering and with an increasing spectrum of biomedical applications. These include basic research in sensory-motor systems, advanced surgical and diagnostic techniques, human-machine interfaces, robots for assistance and rehabilitation. The course aims at reaching an appropriate balance between basic notions of robotics and applications. Students are requested to engage in a number of activities, including software development, lecturing and develop research projects, both individually and as teams.
After completing this course the students will be able to:
The course aims at reaching an appropriate balance between basic notions and applications.
Students, in addition to being involved in lectures and discussions with invited experts for specific course topics, take part in a number of activities, including software development, learning how to control a robot, lecturing (flipped classroom or paper presentation), both individually and in groups.
The final assigment consists on the control of a haptic robot in the laboratory
The purpose of this course is to provide a perspective on robotic technologies applied to (and inspired by) themes of biomedical research and practice. The first part of the course aims to provide the formal tools to understand the kinematics, dynamics, control of biomedical robotic devices and their hardware and software components. The second part is devoted to in-depth analysis of the specific applications.The two parts into which the course is divided will be articulated as described below.
Part 1. Foundations
This will be a series of formal lectures involving the simulation applications The purpose of the lectures is to provide the student with a sufficient mathematical basis for focusing on specific applications
Siciliano,Khatib, Springer Handbook of Robotics, Springer or Spong, M. W., Hutchison, S., and M. Vidyasagar. (2005) Robot Modeling and Control, Wiley & Sons. In addition, the class will review several specialized articles, readings will be distributed via the course website
Additional material will be provide (aulaweb)

All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Students will be evaluated based on
a) Assignements in which the students write and comment a computer simulation or a hardware project related to one of the robotics topics presented in the first part of the course
b) Their active participation to the second part of the course, where students are request to present research articles on specific robotic applications and/or discuss with invited speakers (experts in the field).
c) Final exam
a and b are ongoing assessments (continous evaluation), while c is at the end of the course. Also for students not attending classes a and b precede the final exam (b can be part of the exam itself).
The assessment methods here refers to the exams description above.
a) The assigments aim at evaluating the ability to understand, explain and solve problems related to the topics of the first part of the course on basic concepts of robotics.
b) The active participation part aims at evaluating the ability to learn, deepen and explain topics of the second part, related to robotic applications in the biomedical field.
c) The final exam aims at assessing that the course contents have been assimilated, that the student knows how to use them critically and explain them appropriately.
In addition to the knowledge of the course contents, the quality of the presentations, the correct use of the specialized vocabulary, the ability to reason critically and to apply the acquired knowledge in specific exercises will be assessed.
