    Objectives:Mobile robots are now enabling human beings to physically reach and explore unchartered territories in the Universe. Be a place as distant as Mars, in abysmal depths of ocean, or shrouded by thick glaciers of Antarctic, mobile robots help exploring everything; yet this is just the beginning. Even in day to day life autonomous cars hold a potential to revolutionize transportation and domestic mobile robots help humans in cleaning, elderly help, etc. National defense is an area replete with the use of mobile robots. This course will present various aspects of design, fabrication, motion planning, and control of intelligent mobile robotic systems. The focus of the course is distributed equally on the computational aspects and practical implementation issues and thereby leads to a well rounded training. The course will give students an opportunity to design and fabricate a mobile robotic platform and program it to apply learned theoretical concepts in practice as a semester long class project.
    Proposed Syllabus:
    Robot locomotion: Types of locomotion, hopping robots, legged robots, wheeled robots, stability, maneuverability, controllability;
    Mobile robot kinematics and dynamics: Forward and inverse kinematics, holonomic and nonholonomic constraints, kinematic models of simple car and legged robots, dynamics simulation of mobile robots.
    Perception: Proprioceptive/Exteroceptive and passive/active sensors, performance measures of sensors, sensors for mobile robots like global positioning system (GPS), Doppler effect-based sensors, vision based sensors, uncertainty in sensing, filtering;
    Localization: Odometric position estimation, belief representation, probabilistic mapping, Markov localization, Bayesian localization, Kalman localization, positioning beacon systems.
    Introduction to planning and navigation: path planning algorithms based on A-star, Dijkstra, Voronoi diagrams, probabilistic roadmaps (PRM), rapidly exploring random trees (RRT), Markov Decision Processes (MDP), stochastic dynamic programming (SDP);
    Robotics Project:
    Students will work on a semester long project consisting of design, fabrication, and programming a mobile robotic platform.

    Mobile Robotics 3-0-0-6 Pre-requisites:MA102 at IITP & C

    Objectives:

    Mobile robots are now enabling human beings to physically reach and explore unchartered territories in the Universe. Be a place as distant as Mars, in abysmal depths of ocean, or shrouded by thick glaciers of Antarctic, mobile robots help exploring everything; yet this is just the beginning. Even in day to day life autonomous cars hold a potential to revolutionize transportation and domestic mobile robots help humans in cleaning, elderly help, etc. National defense is an area replete with the use of mobile robots. This course will present various aspects of design, fabrication, motion planning, and control of intelligent mobile robotic systems. The focus of the course is distributed equally on the computational aspects and practical implementation issues and thereby leads to a well rounded training. The course will give students an opportunity to design and fabricate a mobile robotic platform and program it to apply learned theoretical concepts in practice as a semester long class project.

    Proposed Syllabus:


    Robot locomotion: Types of locomotion, hopping robots, legged robots, wheeled robots, stability, maneuverability, controllability;
    Mobile robot kinematics and dynamics: Forward and inverse kinematics, holonomic and nonholonomic constraints, kinematic models of simple car and legged robots, dynamics simulation of mobile robots.
    Perception: Proprioceptive/Exteroceptive and passive/active sensors, performance measures of sensors, sensors for mobile robots like global positioning system (GPS), Doppler effect-based sensors, vision based sensors, uncertainty in sensing, filtering;
    Localization: Odometric position estimation, belief representation, probabilistic mapping, Markov localization, Bayesian localization, Kalman localization, positioning beacon systems.
    Introduction to planning and navigation: path planning algorithms based on A-star, Dijkstra, Voronoi diagrams, probabilistic roadmaps (PRM), rapidly exploring random trees (RRT), Markov Decision Processes (MDP), stochastic dynamic programming (SDP);
    Robotics Project: Students will work on a semester long project consisting of design, fabrication, and programming a mobile robotic platform.
