Robotics Group Project (882H1)

45 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Autumn and spring teaching

The module is designed to expose you to a real-life engineering robotics problem to which they apply the skills and knowledge acquired in the course. The work must be completed within budget, using available resources, by a specified deadline, and presented to an audience not necessarily directly familiar with the work undertaken. The project requires a holistic approach which brings together what is learned and the engineering skills developed on the course. It will demand individual responsibility, critical awareness and creative thinking.

The project involves you to work as part of a team on a particular area of activity relevant to the course, with the goal of meeting a specific set of objectives and supervised by a member of faculty. The specific objectives depend on the nature of the project. It is however typical for a project to involve specification, development of concepts, detailed design, hardware and/or software implementation, testing, analysis, evaluation, documentation and communication and to require project management, resourcing, planning and scheduling.
