Most recent topic: We consider current issues in robotics and embedded intelligent systems. How to combine sensing, action and planning in an uncertain and changing world. How we approach the three key issues in mobile robotics: building a map of our surroundings, knowing where we are, and formulating a plan to get use where we want to go? The course is a mixture of lectures, discussion, guest lectures and class presentations. It's target audience is graduate students, and especially those interested in research in robotics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science or computer vision. Emphasis is on algorithms, inference mechanisms and behavior strategies although we will briefly survey the kinds of mechanical and electronic systems that constitute a robot today.
