Lab Course Mobile Robots (MA-INF 4310)

Dr. Nils Goerke

Wednesdays 13-17, (date can be re-arranged)

Room I.42a, Friedrich-Ebert-Alle 144.

1st preparation meeting, Wednesday 30.7.2014, 11:00, I.42a

2nd preparation meeting and start: Wednesday 8.10.2014, 15:15, I.42a



Subject:

The lab course will introduce some basic state-of-the-art building blocks of mobile robotics using simulations and and our teaching and research platform RoomRider.

The lab course is organized in two parts:

Part 1 Experiments: a series of experiments to learn and practice basic building blocks of mobile robotics with a state of the art robot control environment and our teaching and research platform RoomRider.

Part 2 Mini Projects: chose a state-of-the task for a mobile robot, pick or develop an algorithm to solve that task and implement it using the RoomRider mobile robot platform.

You will work in 2 person groups doing the experiments and implementing the mini-project. The programming language is C++ (Java and Python access to the control system is under construction).

The lab course will cover in parts:
robotic sensors, robotic actuators, robot control schemes, robot control software, simulators, middleware, reactive control, localisation, navigation, path planning, map making, some computer vision, cooperative robots, swarming behavior, multi robotics.


Literature:

Most literature will be provided during the lab course.
