Robot navigation

2019/2020

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Objective:

A mobile robotic system needs to be able to navigate in its environment. This course will teach the students how to self-localize using a combination of sensors, and plan paths and trajectories in order to avoid obstacles.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have knowledge of sensors for self-localization and obstacle avoidance
  • Must have knowledge of map building, internal representations of maps and interpretation of maps
  • Must be able to understand the principles of simultaneous localization and mapping

Skills

  • Must be able to select appropriate sensors or combination of sensors for a specific robot task
  • Must be able to combine noisy and imperfect sensor data into a robot pose estimate
  • Must be able to implement algorithms for generating paths and/or trajectories towards specified goals
  • Must be able to decompose mission objectives into subtasks using state-diagrams or similar and implement algorithms for executing tasks

Competences

  • Must be able to localize and plan a path or trajectory for a specific robot in a complex dynamic environment
