Topics in Autonomous Robotics
Students will be introduced to modern approaches in control and design of autonomous robots through lectures and a project. The course takes place on particular dates of the spring semester, typically half a day of lectures. The dates are provided below.
There will be a choice of research projects for each topic. A project consists in a critical review or experimental research. Ideally, a research project could become a conference paper. Students should choose one project and register on this website. Projects should be done with a lecturer from another lab than the host lab of the student. Students will be assessed on the research projects: written report (80%) + oral presentation (20%). The grading of the research project is done by the corresponding professor.
The written report should be 6-8 pages long, and formatted using the IEEE style files provided below and according to the guidelines of each project. All reports should be written in English. The oral presentation of the report will last 20 minutes, including 5 minutes of questions and answers.
