Difference: MastersConcentration (r4 vs. r3)

The Robotics Concentration
  • The Department of Computer Science at RPI offers an MS degree with specialization in Robotics.
  • Details about the program requirements can be found Here here
Why specialize in Robotics?
  • Unique combination of fundamental knowledge and cutting-edge technology
  • Excellent preparation for Phd studies
  • Increase your range of job opportunities
The main goal of Robotics
  • To create intelligent machines that are beneficial to society
The main intellectual challenges challenge of Robotics

We must learn how to design and control robots to:

  • Understanding how to design and control robots to perform a wide range of useful tasks alone, in groups, or in collaboration with humans, and to do so in ways that are socially acceptable.
  • Perform a wide range of useful physical tasks alone, in groups, or in collaboration with humans
  • Behave in ways that are engaging and socially acceptable to humans
Useful background for Robotics research
The underpinnings of Robotics
  • The field of Robotics is so broad, that students with many different backgrounds can contribute to the field.
  • Assuming knowledge of the subject matter in the courses Robotic I and Robotics II, the subjects most useful in pursuing the goals of the CS Robotics Lab are (in no particular order): algorithms, scientific computing, software engineering, optimization and math programming, Bayesian filtering, multibody dynamics, machine learning, database systems, control theory, and signal processing.
