ENGR 028. Mobile Robotics
(Cross-listed as CPSC 082 )
This course addresses the problems of controlling and motivating robots to act intelligently in dynamic, unpredictable environments. Major topics will include mechanical design, robot perception, kinematics and inverse kinematics, navigation and control, optimization and learning, and robot simulation techniques. To demonstrate these concepts, we will be looking at mobile robots, robot arms and positioning devices, and virtual agents. Labs will focus on programming robots to execute tasks and to explore and interact with their environment.
Prerequisite: Either ENGR 019 or ENGR 056 , or permission of the instructor. MATH 027 or MATH 028 is recommended.
