DescriptionAn introduction to the design and implementation of intelligent mobile robot systems. This course will cover the fundamental elements of mobile robot systems from a computational standpoint. Issues such as software control architectures, sensor interpretation, map building and navigation will be covered, drawing from current research in the field. Students program a small mobile robot to perform simple tasks in real-world environments.
GradesGrades for this class will consist of 70% projects (with all projects weighted roughly equally) and 30% exams.
Course BookThere is no official required book for this class, meaning that there will be no required readings or assignments from the book. However, if you're the type of person who likes to read a formal treatment of the material, I recommend Introduction to Autonomous Mobile Robots
Both editions are good. I actually have the first edition.
