This course presents the basic science behind mobile robotics, robotic manipulation, and computer vision. The course examined key aspects of autonomous systems including sensors, map making, and path planning. The fundamentals of robotic manipulation will be presented, including coordinate transformations, manipulator, kinematics, and motion. Topics in computer vision include image formation, and sensing, region and edge extraction, feature identification, camera calibration and optical measurement. The course concludes with techniques for integrating vision, mobile robots, and manipulators into a complete system. Three lecture hours and three hours of scheduled laboratory time per week.
