COMP 380 - Bodies/Minds: AI Robotics

This course examines two distinct aspects of work in robotics: the physical construction of the robot’s “body” and the creation of robot control programs that form the robot’s “mind.” It will study the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of robot sensors, including sonar, infrared, touch, GPS, and computer vision. It will also examine a variety of techniques for robot control programs, including both reactive and deliberative approaches. The course will include hands-on work with multiple robots, and a semester-long course project in robotics. The course format will be a seminar, with students reading and discussing the research literature. Prerequisite(s): COMP 221  or permission of instructor. Offered even-numbered spring semesters. (4 Credits)
