CS 287/IEOR 290K: Advanced Topics in Robotics
Wednesdays 4-7pm, 405 Soda Hall
Robot algorithms are abstractions of for controlling motion and
perception in the physical world. In this course we will study
algorithms for robotics, including geometric approaches to motion
planning, grasping, positioning, teleoperation, control, navigation,
and assembly. Through reading and discussion of recent papers and
student projects, we will explore a variety of current research topics
including online robots and surgery planning.
I will present several introductory lectures to provide common theoretical background. We will study one paper in depth during each week. Each student will explore a topic in depth, and also carry out a small-scale research project, such as a software simulation or a mathematical model.
Course Control Number: 27010 (CS 287), 41074 (IEOR 290K)
Readings will be handed out in class. Optional Textbooks:
