Advanced mobile robotics

2019/2020

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Objective:

An important class of robots are mobile robots. A mobile robotic system needs sensing, decision making and propulsion. To this end, this project-module will teach the students how to analyse and implement these capabilities into a mobile robotic application.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have knowledge of terminology within mobile robotics
  • Must have knowledge of different categories of mobile robotic systems
  • Must be able to understand how a particular mobile robotic system e.g. the semester project of the student, relates to similar systems
  • Must demonstrate knowledge of common strategies for sensing, guidance and control of mobile robotic systems

Skills

  • Must be able to analyse a problem and suggest a solution that uses relevant theories and methods from mobile robotics
  • Must be able to analyse a mobile robotic system and identify relevant constraints and assessment criteria
  • Must be able to analyse and implement algorithms (e.g., sensing, path planning, localization, control etc.) of relevance to the chosen mobile robotic system
  • Must be able to synthesize, i.e., design and implement, a system (or parts hereof) using relevant theories and methods from mobile robotics
  • Must be able to evaluate a mobile robotic system (or parts hereof) with respect to specific assessment criteria
  • Can explain the process of and criteria for peer reviewed scientific communications
  • Can write a paper for a scientific conference/journal
  • Can prepare and give an oral and poster presentation for a scientific conference

Competences

  • Must be able to communicate the above knowledge and skills both orally and in a written report
  • Must be able to select relevant mobile robotic theories, methods, and tools, and synthesize them in a new context to produce new knowledge and solutions
