Module overview

This module will be first offered in the 2020/21 academic year.

Robotics plays an important part in the development and operation of autonomous aerospace vehicles. The robotic element may consist of a complete vehicle either in outer space or on a planetary surface (e.g. a Martian rover) or a specific component (e.g. the ISS robotic arm).

The module will examine design, construction and operation of such system. The students will gain an understanding of the challenges involved developing such a system, as well as operating at significant distances from the earth.
