COMP3631: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
2021-Today University of Leeds
I teach a module to final year Computing and Mechatronics undergrads. The module is comprised of two areas, Computer Vision and Robotics. I teach the Robotics part of the module.
I teach about general robotics concepts and how to program a robot using the Robot Operating System (ROS). Some of the topics we cover in the module are:
- The Robot Operating System (ROS)
- Motion Planning
- Motion Control
- Configuration Spaces
- Robotic Arm Planning
- Spatial Transformations
- Localisation and Mapping
The module is taught to roughly 180 students per semester, due to class size constraint. The module is comprised of a major examination and a group project where you are expected to program a mobile robot to perform certain tasks. Students are expected to program robots in simulation and deploy the code onto a real robot, if they wish to. Access to real-robots are provided.
