About the Course

The primary goal of this course is to provide students with the subtleties of Industrial automation. Interfacing sensors with machine tools and Gathering data from machines about the various process parameters are comprehensively discussed. Wide coverage of various robotic configurations pertaining to industrial applications, robot design specifications, application-oriented robot programming, and robotic vision systems are unique features of this course. It enhances the ability of the learners to design and make robots for specific
applications. Electrical drives are not sufficient for a few of the robotic industrial applications, the need for hydraulics & pneumatics is immense. The learners can design their own fluid system.

Course Objective
