Skills to be acquired in this module
Professional competences
The students learn:
  • programming of robots (mobile or stationary)
  • implementation of elementary operations
  • integration of operations into a small application scenario
  • programming using Robot Operating System (ROS)
Methodological competences
The students learn:
  • systematic development process with team members
  • systematic evaluation of the application
  • designing a robotic application using basic and advanced robotic concepts
Social competences
The students learn:
  • project management
  • team work
  • organization of the team
The students:
  • time management
  • autodidactic work (literature search, technical specs, related work)
Module contents
Robotic systems will be provided to the students. They will then define the project/application scenario of the robots by their own and complete the project as a small team with self-organization and work distribution among the team members. The module consists of a lecture and an exercise part: Lecture: 2-3 lectures for introduction onto the module and introduction into the Robot Operating System (ROS) as well as the concepts of the projects. Exercises: After the introduction period, the students will work self-organized to complete the proposed project. Work can be distributed weekly or on as concentrated time blocks.
