Contextual robotics

2019/2020

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Objective:

An advanced robotic system will always be integrated into a particular context. The focus of this semester is to expose the students to different contexts and hereby encourage a more holistic mindset. This project will teach the student to select relevant state-of-the-art methods from the field of contextual robotics and synthesize them in a new context to produce new knowledge and solutions.
