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.
