A robot is a physical manifestation and mobile robots are one such example. The project takes its starting point in a problem of relevance to society or industry that may be addressed using mobile robotics; the problem is then broken down into smaller, more manageable sub-problems and analysed for the purpose of defining a relevant technical problem formulation, which can be solved via theories and methods related to robotic systems. The solution shall encompass a programmable computer, which is able to measure signals from its surroundings via selected sensors and process them digitally in some form and cause deliberate robotic action via the robots actuators, e.g. wheels. The software can run on the robot platform or remotely via a network.
See the general description of the types of instruction described in the introduction to Chapter 3. A minimum of 5 semester lectures are given as support for projects. All groups on the semester participate. The objective is to introduce methodology and knowledge on fundamental robotics in the context of the specific robotics problems that the students are working on in their projects. Sensor and actuator hardware that is supported by ROS packages is introduced, and this serves as a foundation for problem solving in the project.
