EEL 4660C - Autonomous Robotic Systems


Credits: 3

Prerequisites: COP 2271C - Introduction to Computation and Programming COP 2272C - Computer Programming 1 , and EEL 3702C - Digital Logic Design  or CDA 2108 - Introduction to Computer Systems  
Co-requisite or Prerequisite: None
Co-requisite: None
Course Description: This course is a project-based intensive semester program, with an integrated introduction to robotics, autonomy, real-time operating systems, and systems engineering. Students specify and design a small-scale yet complex robot capable of real-time interaction with the natural world. Topics covered include embedded systems control, computer vision, localization and planning, mapping algorithms, and sensor integration into real-time operating systems. Students design, assemble, and program a scale-model autonomous, self-driving vehicle. They learn to integrate and program radar sensors, visual sensors, inertial sensors, and GPS mapping, in a series of project challenges: Obstacle detection and wall following, visual servoing, mapping and localization, and motion planning. The final exam is a capstone demonstration of all accomplishments and is a Grand Prix time trial, race, and presentation by the students.
