2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Purpose:
Students who complete the module should be able to apply development robotic tools, programming languages and SW-environments for solving previously specified tasks in robotics.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have understanding of integrated development environments
  • Must have understanding of differences between run-time and compile-time computer programming languages
  • Must be able to explain the concepts of types, declarations, expressions and statements
  • Must have insight into data structures, such as arrays
  • Must have insight into input/output in various forms
  • Must have understanding of procedures and functions, including function arguments
  • Must have understanding of the complexity of a program
  • General imperative programming language (such as C and Java)
  • Software environments for robotic programming Robot Operating System (ROS)
  • The use of ROS services and package abstractions of sensors, actuators and signals
