Duration: approx 16 hrs    
Fundamentals of Robotics course provides students the fundamental skills needed to operate, maintain, program and test robotic systems. The course uses RoboCell, a 3D-solid modeling robotic simulation software, that allows students to develop programming skills through a variety of simulated robotic workcells.
Fundamental of Robotics can be used with different robots including the Scorbot ER-4U and MotoMan Robots. When taught with the MotoMan Robots, this is the base training for students to complete the “Certified Robotic Operator” certification.
Below is a video showing the robot simulation in RoboCell that is used to teach programming before moving to the physical robot to perform the curriculum Skill Drills.
