Dear Roboticists around the World,

my MOOC course "Robotics Foundations I - Robot Modelling" is now open

It's the first of a two-part course based on our textbook /Robotics — 
Modelling, Planning and Control/, by B. Siciliano, L. Sciavicco, L. 
Villani, G. Oriolo, 
which has evolved throughout the last 25 years I have been teaching 
robotics at University of Napoli Federico II.

The first part covers the introduction to robotics and modelling 
(Chapters 1, 2, 3, 7 of the textbook). The course will be open until 28 
February 2017.

I hope you will enjoy the course and learn about the exciting challenges 
of Robotics. As I use to say to my students, keep the gradient ;-)
