Project Exercises: There will be a selection of course exercises each covering a subset of the topics that have been taught. The exercises will apart from the robotics scientific content also contain a part about how the addressed technology could be applied in robots for manufacturing, medical or welfare applications. There will be a possibility to select which exercises to work on, but students may be redistributed for practical balancing. The exercise work will be carried out in groups of around 4 students.

14:15-15:45 Project presentations
