At the end of this course, student will be able to solve the following problems:
A group project allows students to gain practical experience. In this project, students will program a robotic agent that processes images, plans a task based on the image data, and executes a set of motor commands that complete the task. The robot will be simulated in the V-REP simulator.

The course is largely based on the book Robotics, Vision and Control: Fundamental Algorithms in MATLAB, written by Peter Corke, published by Springer in 2011.
Getting the book:
The books listed below are good complements to P. Corke's Robotics, Vision and Control.
Students are encouraged to concurrently follow the course Applied Inductive Learning. (Applied Inductive Learning is however not a prerequisite.)
