ENGRMAE 244 Theoretical Kinematics

(Not required for any major.)
Catalog Data:

ENGRMAE 244 Theoretical Kinematics (Credit Units: 4) Spatial rigid body kinematics is presented with applications to robotics. Orthogonal Matrices, Rodrigues' formula, Quaternions, Plucker coordinates, screw theory, and dual numbers are studied using modern projective geometry and multi-linear algebra. Applications include trajectory planning, inverse kinematics, and workspace analysis. Graduate students only. (Design units: 0)
