Welcome to Introduction to Robotics!
The robotics industry is in a period of rapid growth. This course will cover the fundamentals of modeling, perception, planning, and control, that you need to enter this industry and take advantage of the opportunities presented by it. This course will introduce you to standard modeling and control techniques as well as modern ways of thinking about robotics that are based on methods of optimization and learning. Consistent with these ways of thinking, this course will place a strong emphasis on computation to help us design robotic systems.
The class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30pm to 1:50pm in ECEB 1015.
