Subject description


Year inscription, the lab exercises should be completed for courses in robotics and in measurement courses, or equivalent program for students form other Faculties.

Content (Syllabus outline):

Student uses knowledge gained in robotic and in measurement courses. For students from other Faculties is the seminar adequately adapted. Each student is working on the project on its own. The problems are selected according to the interest fields of Slovenian industry, who either introduce the robotic cells or are major robot users. The measurement cases are linked to the current research projects, cooperation in industrial projects, also technical legislation, safety and quality. Student can work on project in faculty labs, research institute or the company itself. Assigned is a working supervisor, included is in the expert team from research and industrial environment.

Objectives and competences:

The goal is to include student into development and research work in the fields of robot introduction into industry and into fields of measurement in general. Encouraged is problem solving, which is not necessarily linked to the field of electrical engineering, but does require knowledge in electrical engineering. Emphasis will be given to cooperation with other fields of activities at FE. Student is gaining the ability to use robotic knowledge in practice, routine in identification of measurement problems within more complex processes, is searching for suitable solutions and analyzing the final solution. Mastered are research methods and procedures. Gained is autonomy in expert work. Accustomed is to group work. Developed are communication skills.

Intended learning outcomes:

Ability to combine knowledge from various fields of electrical engineering, robotics and measurement.

Learning and teaching methods:

Individual project is assigned to the student at the beginning of semester. The supervisor is selected from the pool of university professors, assistants, researchers and developers at the faculty, reaserach institute or company. Introductory, the problem is presented in detail, then the timeplan is defined, milestones are specified, planned are possible unpredicted events, proposed are measures of final result evaluation. During the semester is the student twice reporting about the work done, first orraly and second in writing. At the end of semested the results are presented in accordance to the practice established for the conferences (publication in proceeding, public presentation, selection of the best projects).

Study materials

Articles from robotic and measurement journals:

  1. IEEE Transactions on Robotics, International Journal of Robotic Research and others
  2. Conference proceedings: ICRA, IROS and others.
  3. Textbooks, study material and relevant expert literature in the fields of measurement, robotics, technical standards, EU and slovenian legislation.

Study in which the course is carried out

  • 2 year - 2nd cycle - Electrical Engineering - Robotics
