Intelligent Robotics (Extended)

Module Title - Intelligent Robotics (Extended)
Number of credits – 20

Module description 

The aims of this module are to:

  • give an appreciation of the issues that arise when designing complete, physically embodied autonomous agents
  • introduce some of the most popular methods for controlling autonomous mobile robots
  • give hands on experience of engineering design
  • encourage independent thought on possible cognitive architectures for autonomous agents

On successful completion of this module, you should be able to:

  • design, build and program simple autonomous robots
  • implement standard signal processing and control algorithms
  • describe and analyse robot processes using appropriate methods
  • write a detailed report on a robot project
  • carry out and write up investigations using appropriate experimental methods
  • describe, use, analyse and discuss the properties of a variety of algorithms in the robotics literature.

Teaching and assessment:

Sessional: 2 hour examination (40%), continuous assessment (60%)
Supplementary (where allowed): None; the module may only be repeated.
