The aim of the course is to develop students' skills and knowledge of the fundamental mathematics and algorithms that underpin robotics, including representation of pose and motion, kinematics, dynamics and control.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
The pre-course activities will be available in the week prior to Week 1. These activities will help prepare you for the course, including:
Final week — Submissions and project peer assessment
It would be beneficial to have knowledge of basic programming, (either of MATLAB or of an object-oriented programming language) and some of the following areas of maths: vectors and spaces, matrices, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. You can review these topics by visiting the Khan Academy using the links below. We recommend that you view these before Week 1 begins, but you might prefer to watch them on an 'as needed' basis throughout the course.
Participants who successfully complete the assessable aspects of the course will be eligible to receive a Statement of attainment. The statement does not represent or confer credit points towards a QUT qualification. The overall assessment is worth a total of 240 points, comprised of 120 points for assessable quizzes and 120 points for MATLAB programming tasks. To qualify, you must achieve an overall score of 50% or above, which is 120 points or more. The quizzes and programming tasks are weighted equally, so it does not matter how you make up your 120 points.
