Department of Mechanical Engineering at NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte is implementing active learning laboratory for Industrial Robotics course. The main challenge in robotics is to understand robot direct and inverse kinematics. Robot kinematics involves application of 3D homogeneous transformations on robotics, hence in active learning lab on robotics students must understand the concept of 3D homogeneous transformations using 3D models of coordinate systems fabricated using 3D printing technology. Concepts like chaining of 3D transformations/forward and inverse transformations were taught to the students using 3D models. Link and joint parameters of the robot were taught to the students using 3D models. Direct and inverse kinematics solutions for different robot configurations were taught to the students using robot models and 3D coordinate systems. In all active learning classes students are made to obtain the mathematical solution and its physical meaning is explained using robot models and coordinate system. Individual students are made to solve unique problems on robot kinematics during active learning class by discussing within themselves. This way of teaching has improved the level of understanding of different concepts of robotic course.
