Course description: This course is taught much like a graduate seminar. Topics include perception, sensors, computer vision, navigation, localization, actuation, manipulation, mobility (e.g., walk, swim, roll, crawl, fly), and intelligence (e.g., control, planning, and mission execution). The course is built around the review and discussion of seminal technical papers in the robotics field with guest lectures both from various Olin faculty and from external leaders in the robotics community. The course will also include a project component to help solidify key concepts.

Competencies: qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis, teamwork, design, diagnosis
