Robotic Systems Control

This pages gathers all the relevant information for the Robotic Systems Control course and laboratory, taught at UTCluj on the winter semster of the academic year 2018-2019.


You can download the presentations for each lecture here (soon to be completed):

Some lectures contain animations. These might work on Windows if you are using Acrobat Reader. But if you want them to work for sure, you should switch to Linux and use pdfpc


You can download the guide for the laboratories here (soon to be completed):

Working with your own laptop

If you want to work with your own laptop, you should install the robotics toolbox for MATLAB by prof. Peter Corke. At the laboratories, we’ll be using the 9.10 version.

For the embedded programming part, we strongly recommend to use the computers in the laboratory.


You can consult the online list for your laboratory presence. Please check your presence often enough to avoid problems with missing presence.


Your final grade will be calculated based on your performance to a practical test and the course exam. The test will focus on the practical exercises that we’ll be doing at the lab, while the exam will be related to the theory taught during the course. The maximum grade for both will be 10. The exam will contribute by 70% to the final grade, while the test will contribute by 30%.
