Course Robot Projects intro
  • Team Design Robot project
  • Individual Pioneer Lab Robot project
Introduction to ROS

Locomotion, Kinematics and Low Level Motion Control
  • Locomotion – Principles and mechanisms to make the robot move.
  • Kinematics – How to model motion of (rigid) bodies?
  1. Differential drive robot, like Pioneer
  2. Wheeled Mobile Robot
  • Motion control – How to make a robot attain a goal or follow a trajectory?
