CSCI 4490 - Robotics II

This course introduces methods that leverage the basic analysis techniques learned in Robotics I to  develop numerical and algorithmic techniques needed to endow robots with the “intelligence” to devise strategies to solve problems they will encounter. Once these abilities are sufficiently well developed, robots will become safe and autonomous, thus paving the way for pervasive personal  robots. Topics include: configuration space representation, cell decomposition, roadmap methods, rapidly-exploring random trees, simultaneous localization and mapping, contact modeling, grasping, and dexterous manipulation.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite/Corequisite: CSCI 4480.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Cross Listed: Cross listed with CSCI 6490, ECSE 4490, ECSE 6490.

Credit Hours: 3
