Introduction to roboticsOpen online learning offered through QUT
This course is an introduction to the exciting world of robotics and the mathematics and algorithms that underpin it.
You'll develop an understanding of the representation of pose and motion, kinematics, dynamics and control.
You'll also be introduced to a variety of types of robot, the diverse tasks they can perform, the role of robots in society and associated ethical issues.
Learn the Building Blocks for a Career in RoboticsCoursera course by University of Pennsylvania
The Introduction to Robotics Specialization introduces you to the concepts of robot flight and movement, how robots perceive their environment, and how they adjust their movements to avoid obstacles, navigate difficult terrains and accomplish complex tasks such as construction and disaster recovery. You will be exposed to real world examples of how robots have been applied in disaster situations, how they have made advances in human health care and what their future capabilities will be. The courses build towards a capstone in which you will learn how to program a robot to perform a variety of movements such as flying and grasping objects.
Robotic visionOpen online learning offered through QUT
Robotic vision introduces you to the field of computer vision and the mathematics and algorithms that underpin it. You'll learn how to interpret images to determine the colour, size, shape and position of objects in the scene. We'll work with you to build an intelligent vision system that can recognise objects of different colours and shapes.
