6.01 Introduction to EECS via Robotics

Class Info

An integrated introduction to electrical engineering and computer science, taught using substantial laboratory experiments with mobile robots. Key issues in the design of engineered artifacts operating in the natural world: measuring and modeling system behaviors; assessing errors in sensors and effectors; specifying tasks; designing solutions based on analytical and computational models; planning, executing, and evaluating experimental tests of performance; refining models and designs. Issues addressed in the context of computer programs, control systems, probabilistic inference problems, circuits and transducers, which all play important roles in achieving robust operation of a large variety of engineered systems.

This class has 6.0001 as a prerequisite.

6.01 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by D. M. Freeman, L. P. Kaelbling, A. Hartz and T. Lozano-Perez.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays in 32-123.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

8.01 Physics I

Class Info

Introduces classical mechanics. Space and time: straight-line kinematics; motion in a plane; forces and static equilibrium; particle dynamics, with force and conservation of momentum; relative inertial frames and non-inertial force; work, potential energy and conservation of energy; kinetic theory and the ideal gas; rigid bodies and rotational dynamics; vibrational motion; conservation of angular momentum; central force motions; fluid mechanics. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning) format which features students working in groups of three, discussing concepts, solving problems, and doing table-top experiments with the aid of computer data acquisition and analysis.

This class has no prerequisites.

8.01 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by D. Chakrabarty and P. Dourmashkin.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-152.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
