Module 16 – ROBOT MANIPULATORS & END EFFECTORS
This module is designed to cover the fundamentals of manipulators, links, and joints. A discussion of kinematics and haptic technology is  resented, as well as dextrous manipulation, and an overview of the basic coordinate systems for a robot manipulator. The theoretical and practical aspects of manipulators and spatial analysis are introduced in this module using a combination of video, animation and a laboratory projects and featuring robotics simulation software.

Learning Outcomes:
• Name the most common type of manipulator.
• Differentiate between robot links and joints.
• Define major axes and minor axes.
• Explain the purpose of kinematics in robotic systems.
• Describe screw theory in kinematic applications.
• Name the three types of revolute joints.
• Define haptic technology.
• List the four general categories of robotic manipulation.
• Differentiate between velocity manipulability and velocity workspace analysis.
• Describe the function of dexterous manipulation.
• Name the three basic co-ordinate systems for a robot manipulator.
• Explain the operation of a gantry robot.
• List six end effectors used in industrial robotics.
• Determine the shape of a work envelope.
