Intelligent Systems for Robotics
Meets Thursday, 7:20 PM to 10:00 PM, in Room 2247 of the Engineering Building. Notice that this is not what PatriotWeb says.
Professor Sean Luke.
Prerequisites Either CS580, ECE 650, SYST 611, or SYST555. If not CS580, please contact me.
About the Class This course will cover basic concepts in autonomous robotics. The course will be project-rich and directly involve robots. The emphasis this year will be on those concepts necessary for autonomous team humanoid robotics, specifically: Architectures and Behaviors, Kinematics and Dynamics, Sensors, Localization, Robot Learning, basic Hardware Interfaces, and Multiagent Systems. Given additional time, we may also cover Partial Order Planning, Path/Trajectory Planning, Simulation, and Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM).
