We will explain some fundamental notions appearing in advanced robotics. We shall, e.g., learn how to solve the inverse kinematics task of a general serial manipulator with 6 degrees of freedom. There is a general solution to this problem but it can't easily be obtained by elementary methods. We shall present some more advanced algebraic tools for solving algebraic equations. We will also pay special attention to representing and parameterizing rotations and motions in 3D space. We will solve simulated problems as well as problems with real data in labs and assignments.
