Dear colleagues,

Free registration is open for the UJI MOOC Course on Autonomous Mobile


This is an introductory course addressed to undergraduates and hobbyists
interested in programming mobile robots to perform tasks in realistic

Throughout the course, practical exercises will be developed with 3D
simulations in the cloud with https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.theconstructsim.com_&d=DgIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=gDsbRXiMQUKXVkctcwuXIDAlhYIJp_ZDf3gCbvmc3zU&s=afAJ4Ws_9YWtLGnoS2yheH_eeKQNNpj3xp5cbueDO0c&e= , so you do
not need to install any software in your computer or tablet.

The course will start on February 6th 2017, lasting for 6 weeks, with an
estimated average workload of 6 hours/week.

Basic concepts of physics, geometry, and programming (preferably Python)
are recommended.

We hope you enjoy this course.

Kind regards,
