AIM
Robots are slowly and steadily replacing human beings in many fields. The aim of this course is to introduce the students into this area so that they could use the same when they enter the industries.

OBJECTIVE
The course has been so designed to give the students an overall view of the mechanical components
•    The mathematics associated with the same.
•    Actuators and sensors necessary for the functioning of the robot.
