The virtual lab on Mobile Robotics is designed to supplement a senior undergraduate or graduate level course in Mobile Robotics. The experiments are designed to improve the clarity in understanding of the basic concepts as well as to enable the student to put them into practical use. The experiments constitute the quintessential algorithmic modules required for automating a robot, namely algorithms dealing with localization, mapping, planning, exploration and simultaneous localization and mapping.
The textbooks for this course are:
- Probabilistic Robotics by Sebastian Thrun, Wolfram Burgard and Dieter Fox
- Autonomous Robots by Illah Norbhaksh and Roland Siegwart
- Computational Principles of Mobile Robots by Michael Jenkin and GregoryDud
