- This unit gives an overview of robotics and automation techniques. It covers: (1) automation systems; (2) robot manipulators; (3) mobile robotic systems; (4) robotic guidance: kinematics, localisation, navigation, and mapping and (5) robotic sensing: robot vision and artificial intelligence. The unit uses robot simulation as well as work on real robots during labs and group projects.
- Students are able to (1) discuss the history and evolution of applications of robotics systems; (2) demonstrate procedural programming skills; (3) demonstrate research capabilities through applying foundation knowledge to practical robotics applications; (4) develop and code robot-specific algorithms; (5) apply specific AI methods when appropriate; and (6) effectively use a robot simulation system and physical robot.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) laboratories; (2) project; and (3) tests and examinations. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is only available in this unit in the case of a student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
