This course surveys many of the core problems of robotics, and their solutions. By the end of the course, a student should be able to program robots that move in predictable ways, overcoming environmental uncertainties; that can interpret their surroundings; and that can plan their motion in order to achieve goals. Topics covered include robot motion; image processing and computer vision; localisation methods and computer based search and planning. Apart from using programming skills to implement robot algorithms, the students will learn how to mathematically model robots in order to understand why robot algorithms are designed as they are.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course introduces the student to important problems, and their solutions, in the field of robotics. Topics include
- Robot motion
- Computer vision and image processing
- Search and planning
(i) Assistive technologies may be required for any student who is unable to use a standard keyboard/mouse/computer monitor. Any students wishing to discuss this further should contact the School Disability Co-ordinator.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: Continuous assessment (100%).
During lectures, the Personal Response System and/or other ways of student interaction will be used for formative assessment. Additionally, practical sessions will provide students with practice opportunities and formative assessment.
Formative feedback for in-course assessments will be provided in written form. Additionally, formative feedback on performance will be provided informally during practical sessions.
