Course Summary

The Program is delivered jointly with the Lappeenranta University of Technology or Tallinn University of Technology.

Biomechatronics is a relatively new science that studies the compatibility of biological organisms with mechatronic systems. This field of studies emerged due to the recent development of nanotechnologies and cybernetics. Nowadays Biomechatronics becomes more and more essential for people's lives. For example, recent years saw the brisk development of man-operated medical robots. Just imagine, the surgeon is staying behind the glass windows of an operating ward with a remote control device while a complex robot equipped with multiple cameras is performing a heart surgery. Impressive, isn't it?

The student will learn

  • classifications, current condition and future prospects of modern robotics, mechanics, and biomechanics;
  • controlling systems of the modern manipulating robots;
  • to construct simple models of robot controlling systems via programmable microcontrollers;
  • images construction methods based on using of physical phenomena when displaying the surrounding reality;
  • data processing instruments in the machine vision systems and  measurement data processing methods;
  • to validate the selection of measurement data processing algorithms;

and more.
