Algorithm for Sensor-based Robotics

Course Description

This course was taught by Dr. Simon Leonard at Johns Hopkins University.

This course surveys the development of robotic systems for navigating in an environment from an algorithmic perspective. It will cover basic kinematics, configuration space concepts, motion planning, and localization and mapping. It will describe these concepts in the context of the ROS software system, and will present examples relevant to mobile platforms, manipulation, robotics surgery, and human-machine systems.
