Section Description

The objective of this course is to prepare students in designing and automating aerial and ground robots that operate in harsh, uncertain, and changing field environments. The course will cover three primary aspects of mobile robotics: Perception, Motion Control, and Data Analytics, and bring everything together through labs involving Ground robots and flying Unmanned Aircraft (Drones). Prerequisites: The specific prerequisites are MATH 221, MATH 225, MATH 241, MATH 285 or equivalent. Graduate standing is sufficient to waive prerequisite requirements for graduate students. Other cases will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the instructor. In general, students are expected to have taken introductory differential equations, introduction to probability and statistics, linear algebra, and software programming. Programming: An introductory knowledge of programming is essential for this course. You may choose any programming language that you are comfortable with for the problem sets a
