Automated manufacturing system design and operations – sensors, actuators, programmable controls. Concepts for the integrated design and verification of virtual system models, control programming, and hardware implementation.
- Computers and CNC Architecture
- Sensors and actuators
- Logics and Programmable Logic Controllers
- Discrete Control System Design
- Motion Control Systems
The student, upon completion of this course, will be able to:
- Understand fundamental operational principles of computer numerical controlled manufacturing systems and machine tools.
- Describe the basic principles and operational considerations for typical automation components such as sensors, actuators, and programmable control systems.
- Develop mathematical models and analyze dynamic response of mechatronic systems used in manufacturing automation and design control laws to be implemented in real-time hardware.
- Design smooth reference trajectories for coordinated motion generation on multi-axis machine tools and industrial robotic manipulators.
- Design, conduct experiments, and draw conclusions from an engineering analysis of a virtual model of a manufacturing system.
