COMP3631: Intelligent Systems and Robotics (On Campus)

2021-2024 University of Leeds

I taught a 20-credit module to third year Computing and Mechatronics undergrads during the second semester between 2021 and 2024. The module was taught to 180 students, a limit enforced due to number of physical robots required. Students program robots in simulation (ROS & Gazebo) and deploy the code onto a real robot (Turtlebot).

Some of the topics I cover in the module are:

  1. The Robot Operating System (ROS)
  2. Motion Planning
  3. Motion Control
  4. Configuration Spaces
  5. Robotic Arm Planning
  6. Locomotion
  7. Kinematics
  8. Spatial Transformations
  9. Localisation and Mapping
