Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to
1. implement and integrate software components for robots
2. solve an assignment in robotics with limited resources in order to
• be able to work with autonomous and other complex systems in research and/or development
• improve the skills of planning and carrying out development work in project groups.

Course main content

The main task in the course is to design, implement and evaluate robots to solve certain specific assignments. The work is carried out in groups as a project. The assignments that should be solved are large and complicated enough to put the project groups in situations where one is forced to prioritise and handle limitations, especially in time.
