Didactic methods

The teaching includes theoretical and laboratory lectures. The lectures will be held in the classroom/laboratory with streaming sharing. At the end of the lectures, the recordings are made available on the moodle/panotopo platform. During the theoretical and laboratory lectures, exercises will be carried out to consolidate the learning of theoretical notions. The laboratory activity presents and uses open-source simulation tools widely used by the scientific community, such as ROS environment and apps and Python programming language. Along the laboratory activities, a whole case study will be implemented. To stimulate the constant and active participation of students, exercises will be proposed. Teaching material developed from reference books provided during lessons.

Learning assessment procedures

The exam is composed by two different tests. A written test to evaluate theoretical skills (multiple option questions and/or open questions) – duration 90 minutes. A second test which consists in the oral discussion of a robotic project: project group realted to the simulation of a robotic process developed in the ROS environment - it requieres to deliver the ROS code and the presentation before the day of oral discussion - duration of the oral presentation 20 minutes.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Evaluation criteria

To pass the exam, students will have to demonstrate that they understand the fundamental mathematical modeling used in industrial robotics - matrix calculus, extrapolation of DH parameters, exercises for direct/inverse kinematics derivation. Furthermore, they must demonstrate knowledge of ROS by answering theoretical questions related to the structure of the environment.
To asses practical skills, students should demonstrate to implement a simulation in the ROS environment using material collected autonomously as well as models and scripts presented during the laboratory lectures.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The two tests will be evaluated separately. The final grade is obtained as the arithmetic mean between the two tests - which must have both a positive grade. The evaluation of the oral presentation of the project can provide for the differentiation of the grade between the project participants.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D sono a scelta dello studente, quelle di tipologia F sono ulteriori conoscenze utili all’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro (tirocini, competenze trasversali, project works, ecc.). In base al Regolamento Didattico del Corso, alcune attività possono essere scelte e inserite autonomamente a libretto, altre devono essere approvate da apposita commissione per verificarne la coerenza con il piano di studio. Le attività formative di tipologia D o F possono essere ricoperte dalle seguenti attività.

1. Insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona

Comprendono gli insegnamenti sotto riportati e/o nel Catalogo degli insegnamenti (che può essere filtrato anche per lingua di erogazione tramite la Ricerca avanzata).

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: se l'insegnamento è compreso tra quelli sottoelencati, lo studente può inserirlo autonomamente durante il periodo in cui il piano di studi è aperto; in caso contrario, lo studente deve fare richiesta alla Segreteria, inviando a carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it il modulo nel periodo indicato.

2. Attestato o equipollenza linguistica CLA

Oltre a quelle richieste dal piano di studi, per gli immatricolati A.A. 2021/2022 e A.A. 2022/2023 vengono riconosciute:

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza superiore a quello richiesto dal corso di studio (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
  • Altre lingue e italiano per stranieri: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza a partire da A2 (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).

Tali cfu saranno riconosciuti, fino ad un massimo di 3 cfu complessivi, di tipologia D. Solo nel caso in cui la data di acquisizione della certificazione sia precedente al 27/10/2023 (data della delibera del Collegio didattico di Ingegneria dell'Informazione) potranno essere riconosciuti un massimo di 6 CFU, come precedentemente previsto. Ulteriori crediti a scelta per conoscenze linguistiche potranno essere riconosciuti solo se coerenti con il progetto formativo dello studente e se adeguatamente motivati.

Per gli immatricolati A.A. 2023/2024 i crediti per certificazioni linguistiche ulteriori a quelle previste dal piano didattico vengono riconosciuti come crediti sovrannumerari taf D.

Modalità di inserimento a librettorichiedere l’attestato o l'equipollenza al CLA e inviarlo alla Segreteria Studenti - Carriere per l’inserimento dell’esame in carriera, tramite mail: carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it

3. Competenze trasversali

Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal TALC - Teaching and learning center dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti regolarmente iscritti all'anno accademico di erogazione del corso https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: non è previsto l'inserimento dell'insegnamento nel piano di studi. Solo in seguito all'ottenimento dell'Open Badge verranno automaticamente convalidati i CFU a libretto. La registrazione dei CFU in carriera non è istantanea, ma ci saranno da attendere dei tempi tecnici.  

4. Periodo di stage/tirocinio

Oltre ai CFU previsti dal piano di studi (verificare attentamente quanto indicato sul Regolamento Didattico): qui il VADEMECUM DELLE ATTIVITÀ DI TIROCINIO (indirizzo email della Commissione tirocini: tirocini-ismp@ateneo.univr.it ); qui la relativa pagina informativa (con link a moodle); qui informazioni su come attivarlo. 

Verificare nel regolamento quali attività possono essere di tipologia D e quali di tipologia F.

Module/Programme news

News for students

There you will find information, resources and services useful during your time at the University (Student’s exam record, your study plan on ESSE3, Distance Learning courses, university email account, office forms, administrative procedures, etc.). You can log into MyUnivr with your GIA login details: only in this way will you be able to receive notification of all the notices from your teachers and your secretariat via email and soon also via the Univr app.

Attendance

The inter-university nature of the course of study lies in the cooperation of the three universities in the provision of faculty. Therefore, teaching delivery takes place at the administrative and teaching site in Verona and not in the partner universities. This means that it is not possible to attend this bachelor's degree program in the University of Trento or Modena-Reggio Emilia; however, it is possible to use the study spaces of the partner universities, thanks to the agreement between them.

As stated in the Didactic Regulations for A.Y. 2022/2023, course attendance is not mandatory.
Please refer to the constantly updated information of the Crisis Unit for teaching delivery methods.
