Description This module is concerned with robot planning and control in a physical world. We will introduce the concepts and tools for modelling, simulating, and controlling robots with respect to dynamics. In a series of lectures we will study the fundamental and advanced techniques for controlling a robot in a real environment l. Lab exercises will reinforce learned concepts by means of evaluation on a (real/simulated) physical robot.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module student should be able to:
  • Develop and formulate models of a robot moving in a real environment.
  • Implement algorithms for solving robot planning or control problems.
  • Investigate and analyse control methods for robot motion (on a simulator or real robot).
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the main methods of modelling and controlling robots in real environments.
