Septimiu (Tim) E. Salcudean received his BEng and MEng from McGill University and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, all in electrical engineering. From 1986 to 1989, he was a Research Staff Member in the robotics group at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. He then joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia, where he holds the Laszlo Chair in Biomedical Engineering and a Canada Research Chair. In 1996 Dr. Salcudean held a Killam Research Fellowship and spent one year at ONERA in Toulouse, France. In 2005 he was on a sabbatical visit at CNRS/TIMG/GMCAO in Grenoble, with Dr. Jocelyne Troccaz.
Dr. Salcudean has been a co-organizer of the Haptics Symposium from 2000 - 2002, of a Haptics, Virtual Reality, and Human Computer Interaction Workshop at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications, and a Technical Editor(1992 - 1994) and Senior Editor (1994 - 2000) of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation.
Introduction to Robotics
Common manipulator configurations, actuator and sensor technology. Efficient representations and computational methods for real-time microprocessor-based implementation of robot control algorithms. Robot control methods, network equivalents, impedance control. Introduction to teleoperation implementation aspects.
System Design for Robots and Teleoperators
Requirements and methods for computer control of manipulator systems; computer simulation of mechanical linkages and actuator systems. Computer architectures suitable for manipulator control in robots and teleoperators. Prior taking of MECH 563 is recommended.
Systems and Control
Continuous time system analysis by Laplace transforms; system modeling by transfer function and state space methods; feedback, stability and sensitivity; control design; frequency domain analysis. Credit will be given for only one of EECE 360 or 369. [4-0-0]
