Course Description

This course is an introduction to algorithms for robotic systems. The theme of the course is how these algorithms intelligently make use of sensory information from their environment and purposefully act upon it. Topics will include motion planning, processing sensor information, localization, mapping, and handling uncertainty. We will discuss applications in mobile robotics and in robotic manipulation. There is a laboratory component of this class in which students will implement a number of these algorithms on mobile robots.
