ECE 647 / MAI 652: Autonomous Mobile Robots masters course @ UCY
Fall semester, taught in English, for students enrolled in masters in Electrical / Computing Engineering, or Artificial Intelligence.
Inspired by courses given in top schools worldwide, this course aims to convey the fundamentals of developing autonomous mobile robots and systems, studying key techniques from the state of the art. The main emphasis is on robotic perception towards scene understanding, and probabilistic environment modeling, localization, and mapping towards automating robot navigation.
This course inspires in-class discussion, self-study, and critical thinking around these key concepts in order to prepare students for the next steps in their careers. Theoretical concepts studied in class will be put into practice via exercises. In the second half of the semester, aside from lectures, the students take turns presenting seminal, state-of-the-art papers in class, forming a reading club.
ECE 435: Robots undergraduate course @ UCY
Spring semester, for 3rd or 4th year undergraduate students enrolled in bachelor studies in Electrical / Computing Engineering.
This class is tailored to build up the students' understanding all the way from basic linear algebra, signal processing and probability theory, to the analysis of sensor data, localization, and mapping techniques that can be used to achieve autonomous navigation of a robot.
