This course covers theory and practical applications for mobile robots. The focus is mainly on ground-based autonomous vehicles. The intended audience is engineers, students, and individuals who are involved in any aspect of mobile robotics including deployment and operation, education, design, construction, selection, and maintenance.

Learning Objectives:
  - Determine the allowed motions for a wheeled or legged mobile vehicle
  - Calculate required motor commands for a wheeled vehicle to follow a specified trajectory
  - Select and operate sensors, including LIDAR, needed for a robot to navigate in the real world
  - Employ existing algorithms, such as Kalman filtering, to determine the robot's location
  - Employ existing algorithms (such as A*) to plan a path to a goal

  - Locomotion - means of motion
  - Kinematics - allowed motions for wheeled platforms
  - Sensors - exteroceptive / proprioceptive, active / passive
  - Localization - determining the robot's position on a map
  - Path planning and Navigation - using A* and D* to reach a goal
