Japan is a leading country in robotic-manipulator technology. In the (near) future, robots are expected to become an integral part of our society. To become leaders in this robotized societal structure, the students at our University must be made aware of the basics in design, fabrication, and control of robots.
Among the many types of robots available, teleoperated robots are commonly used in the handling of hazardous materials and in the surgical field. Teleoperated robots can provide super-human performance to the operator while keeping the operators in a safe environment.
Furthermore, the ongoing pandemic hinders face-to-face learning, and there is a need for a completely online-based project-based learning course.
Trough international cooperation, this lecture will nurture the students’ skills in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and programming.
