Robotics: Manipulation, Decision Making and Learning
The course provides an overview of mathematical models and algorithms behind state-of-the-art robotic systems, especially in service robotics. The course focus is in manipulation, optimal decision making and control, and learning, which are central components in more general purpose robotic systems. Manipulation is used as a scenario in which the mathematical models and algorithms are studied. In particular, methods and models that help cope with inherent uncertainty of the environment are considered.
