A mobile robot is an integrated mechanical, electrical, and computational system
that can function in the physical world. Unbound from the shackles of the
stationary desktop, a mobile robot must include a variety of methods to
navigate, perceive, and problem solve.
This course presents an integrated systems view of robotics with topics
including vision, motion planning, mobile mechanisms, kinematics, and sensors.
Students will construct sensors, actuators, and robots which are driven by a
microcontroller. Each project will reinforce the principles discussed in
lectures. Students will work in multidisciplinary teams consisting of an
electrical/computer engineer, a mechanical engineer, a computer scientist and
an industrial engineer. This course will also cover some contemporary
happenings in robotics, which include current robot research, applications, and
