Mobile robots have been popularly implemented in many commercial and industrial settings, such as logistics, healthcare services, marine, manufacturing, etc.  Many companies are planning to implement autonomous mobile robots to improve their industrial efficiency. With the development of computer science and sensory technology, various types of mobile robots have been designed and developed, such as Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs), Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and Autonomous Forklifts. Different robots are designed for different tasks, so how to select and configure an appropriate robotic system to serve your application in your environmental setting is an important skill. Robotic engineers must be capable of understanding the robotic fundamentals, selecting the correct mobile robots, designing effective robotic systems, as well as planning their automation projects. This course aims to fill the gaps in knowledge and skills for the manufacturing industry in the areas of autonomous mobile robots. About this Programme The course aims to help participants understand and improve the ability from the following aspects: • Identify the hardware components in a mobile robotic system and their functionalities. • Identity and understand the sensors typically used in mobile robotic systems. • Learn the fundamentals of navigation, perception & control for mobile robotics, including its programming and simulation. • Understand the software modules in a robotic system. • Design your own autonomous robotic system according to the specified applications. • Know some real-life examples of mobile robotic systems in the industry. Understand the common robotic systems, their typical industrial applications Who Should Attend The course is suitable for those who are currently employed or wish to be employed in robotics or industrial automation fields. A typical candidate profile could be: A typical Candidate Profile could be: • R&D Engineers and/or Managers • Software Programmers • Manufacturing Engineers • Automation Engineers • Robotic Integrators • Industrial Design Engineers

Course Outline Skills Course Reference Number: To be confirmed (32 training hours) The programme employs the Learn-Practise-Implement™ (LPI™) pedagogy with 4 learning areas that are aimed to increase the participants’ level of understanding of the fundamentals and skills of mobility robotic systems.
