6.141 Robotics: Science and Systems I
Presents concepts, principles, and algorithms for sensing and computation related to the physical world. Topics include motion planning, geometric reasoning, kinematics and dynamics, state estimation, tracking, map building, manipulation, human-robot interaction, fault diagnosis, and embedded system development. Students specify and design a small-scale yet complex robot capable of real-time interaction with the natural world. Students may continue content in 6.142. Prior knowledge of one or more of the following areas would be useful: control (2.004, 6.302, or 16.30); software (1.00, 6.005, 6.0001, 6.0002, or 16.35); electronics (6.002, 6.070, 6.111, or 6.115); mechanical engineering (2.007); or independent experience in 6.146 competition or a relevant UROP. Students engage in extensive written and oral communication exercises. Enrollment limited.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 32-155.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.
