Dear colleagues,

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

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__mooc.uji.es_enrol_index.php-3Fid-3D22-26lang-3Den&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=UjqYze5FluG6GeU0yKYEUJcYnBP8TBuu4ozX4HkgOQ4&s=PqKrcF-FPdkaLIHOUuSd9bR4lul2iPrVjxNjzXhtqGM&e=

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

Throughout the course, practical exercises will be developed with 3D
simulations with an easy-to-use virtual machine, working in Windows, Linux,
or Mac.

The course will start on *May 14th 2018*, 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,

Enric Cervera
