Learning Goals

Students see how a simple robot arm end-effector moves with regard to various joint angles. MATLAB facilitates a visual aspect to theory given and also mimics robotic programming in a real environment.

Context for Use

Online classroom laboratory for asynchronous environments of any size. It uses basic MATLAB skills and students only must be familiar with the programming environment, basic m-files, and programming fundamentals.

Description and Teaching Materials

Students only need to have MATLAB on their computers.
