CS 5750 - Foundations of Robotics

Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MATH 1920  or MATH 2220  and MATH 2940  and CS 1110  or permission of instructor. Co-meets with CS 4750 /ECE 4770 .

R. Knepper.

Robotics as an application draws from many different fields and allows automation of products as diverse as cars, vacuum cleaners, and factories. This course is a challenging introduction to basic computational concepts used broadly in robotics. Topics include simulation, kinematics, control, optimization, and probabilistic inference. The mathematical basis of each area is emphasized, and concepts are motivated using common robotics applications and programming exercises. Students will participate in a series of projects over the course of the semester, in which they will implement algorithms that apply each of the topics discussed in class to real robotics problems. This course prepares students to take CS 4752 /MAE 4750 : Robotic Manipulation and MAE 4180 /CS 3758 : Autonomous Mobile Robots, among others.
