Control of Mobile Robots

Hello, We are reaching out to let you know that the Control of Mobile Robots course will close for new learner enrollment on August 17th, 2020. Since you have already enrolled, you will continue to see it on your Coursera Dashboard as long as you remain enrolled in the course. If you are interested in earning a Course Certificate for this course, please upgrade or apply for Financial Aid by August 16th, 2020, if you have not already done so. If you are a Coursera for Business learner, you can continue to use your sponsored credit. In order to earn a Course Certificate, you will need to complete all graded assignments, including peer reviews, by February 17th, 2020. After that point, no new assignment submissions will be accepted for Certificate credit. While we hope that you will be able to complete the course, you can find more information about requesting a refund (https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/209819043-Request-a-refund) or unenrolling from a course (https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/208279756-Unenroll-from-a-course) in our Learner Help Center. Original Course Description: Control of Mobile Robots is a course that focuses on the application of modern control theory to the problem of making robots move around in safe and effective ways. The structure of this class is somewhat unusual since it involves many moving parts - to do robotics right, one has to go from basic theory all the way to an actual robot moving around in the real world, which is the challenge we have set out to address through the different pieces in the course.

What people are saying

control theory

This is one of the greatest introductory courses on mobile robotics and control theory with a rich enough content that I'v taken.

The course is helpful for those who want to understand the control theory application in the mobile robotics field.

excellent excellent The part of Control Theory shocks me.

I hope some day you could offer a course only focused on control theory.

Best course to learn how to apply control theory to real life robots!

Great course for people with or without experience in control theory.

very interesting course!and able to help me summarize the knowledge about control theory I have learnt Great course very interesting and complete.

mobile robots

Really interesting way in which controls is taught through mobile robots!!!

The course was well structured, involves the best mathematics required for modelling mobile robots.

It actually focus on modelling of the mobile robots.

Very helpuful introduction of autonomus driving vehicle.The professor is wonderful, I'm looking for deeply investigate control of mobile robots.

This course is comprehensive on Mobile Robots.

A good start about Control of Mobile Robots.

But then again I took your course at Georgia Tech as well so I might be biased :) I totally recommend it" Great overview of mobile robots and control systems, systematic and compact!

glue lectures

I enjoyed the course, lectures, glue lectures and simulation notes.

The TAs are all good, and the glue lectures help a lot for passing the exam.

I'am not so good at math and programming, but lectures and glue lectures were detailed enough to understand.

The glue lectures and the extra resources with the QuickBot were also very helpful.

I must say the way professor Magnus Egerstedt has taught, his punchlines, bananas, quotes, practicals, and all the simulations and glue lectures by the assistants, all were awesome.

There is a lot of math but they introduced the concept of glue lectures to highlight the aspects from the class that will help you complete the quizzes - so it's not that hard to do it.

and i really like to continue such course the glue lectures are very helpful which provides practically viewing the things which are taught in the main lecture Excellent Course, a thorough introduction to mobile robots control I have learned to systematically approach robotics through this course.

programming assignments

Programming assignments are very good.

The supporting staff do a great job as well, with relevant programming assignments and review lectures.

Dr. Egerstedt's style of presentation of the subject matter keeps the student motivated and helps eliminate the boredom and procrastination tendency generally observed while taking online courses.The weekly quizzes and the optional programming assignments are moderately challenging but awfully interesting and helps get a clear idea of the concepts covered in that weeks lectures.A good course to take if you are interested to look around your world from a control engineer's perspective.

Just do it very nice course it would be better if programming assignments are given importance Great course.

Also will be great to make the programming assignments not optional, maybe?

Plus optional programming assignments in Matlab (which I didn't do as I don't have matlab).

The result of that is loss of motivation to complete the programming assignments.

control systems

Excellent course on the basics of control systems.

Despite taking requisite classes for my undergrad degree, I can now say I understand control systems.

helped in my PID control systems.

Excellent introduction to control of robotics and control systems in general.

Provides the necessary control systems foundations, which serve as building blocks for future research.

Thank you Professor Egerstedt for this wonderful course- for someone looking to hone their ideas of control systems with application to robotics - this course was a lot of fun.
