The primary goal of this course is to teach students about the nuances of industrial automation and how it can be applied through digitalization. This course is distinguished by its comprehensive coverage of various robotic configurations for industrial applications, robot design specifications, application-oriented robot programming, and robotic vision systems. It improves the learners' ability to design and build Robots for specific applications.
Digitalization is unavoidable in today's world. Industry 4.0 is critical for integrating manufacturing and business as a whole in order to reduce complexity and decision making. From digital twins to robotic process automation, this course gives insight into the concepts of smart factories and digital transformation. The applications of Product Life Management, ERP, Value Chain Management, and IIoT in industries are thoroughly discussed.
