Learn robotics by exploring the history, anatomy and intelligence of robots and test drive robots using exciting simulations
Robots today are roving Mars, hoovering our floors, building cars and entertaining us in films. You may even share Stephen Hawking’s world view that super-intelligent ones may one day bring about the end of the human race.
If you’d like to find out more, but don’t have Hawking’s brain or an advanced qualification in cybernetics, this course is for you. You won’t require a soldering iron, but you’ll explore the basics of robot design, control and behaviour through a series of simulations that will have you test driving an ERIC – our very own University of Reading mobile robot.
What will you achieve?
Describe different forms of robot and applications where they may be used
Determine the appropriate commands to allow a robot to achieve particular tasks using information from sensors
Appreciate how aspects of robotics can be applied in many different scenarios
