21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)
- Programming experience
- Basic understanding of computer science and engineering
- Familiarity with probability concepts and linear algebra
Robotics is an area in artificial intelligence (AI) that deals with the programming and designing of intelligent and efficient machines.
This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at engineers who wish to program and create robots through basic AI methods.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Implement filters (Kalman and particle) to enable the robot to locate moving objects in its environment.
- Implement search algorithms and motion planning.
- Implement PID controls to regulate a robot’s movement within an environment.
- Implement SLAM algorithms to enable a robot to map out an unknown environment.
Format of the Course
- Interactive lecture and discussion.
- Lots of exercises and practice.
- Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
