BEE 3900 - Bio-Robotics

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: differential equations (MATH 2930 ). Highly recommended prerequisite: BEE 2600  or permission of instructor. Co-meets with BEE 5900 .

S. Jung.

Introduction to bio-inspired and bio-enabled robotics across scales by an interdisciplinary approach, by gradually integrating knowledge in mechanical engineering and bioengineering. The concept and basic principles of biorobotics are discussed through macroscale robots in various fields including agriculture such as fruit picking robots. Homework includes programming, literature searches, and design studies of their own biorobots.

Outcome 1: Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering robotic components by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.

Outcome 2: Apply robotic design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of agricultural health and safety.

Outcome 3: Integrate/synthesize your knowledge of biology, physics, chemistry, and/or engineering analysis to create a robot.
