Greetings -


I will be teaching an Introduction to Robotics course at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic from 21 June - 28 July 2018 through the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC)<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__usac.edu_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vW_jOw7cbmiOocsrHYRKTbnXcqSEOUszUL4xQ31cLl0&s=05mPKkEZ9_ytKpdXGaAyNvOUQj6541p-VivEOFUiFPo&e=> <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__usac.edu_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vW_jOw7cbmiOocsrHYRKTbnXcqSEOUszUL4xQ31cLl0&s=05mPKkEZ9_ytKpdXGaAyNvOUQj6541p-VivEOFUiFPo&e=>. This is an upper-division, undergraduate course aimed at teaching the fundamentals of robotics via a hands-on approach using MatLab and ROS. A course description can be found HERE<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__usac.edu_study-2Dabroad-2Dprograms_czech-2Drepublic_prague_courses_2018_summer-2D2-23introduction-2Dto-2Drobotics&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vW_jOw7cbmiOocsrHYRKTbnXcqSEOUszUL4xQ31cLl0&s=N4SpZopuJk4pBshNBjJ0lqMSluHaUebE_UPj384Uje4&e=> <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__usac.edu_study-2Dabroad-2Dprograms_czech-2Drepublic_prague_courses_2018_summer-2D2-23introduction-2Dto-2Drobotics&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vW_jOw7cbmiOocsrHYRKTbnXcqSEOUszUL4xQ31cLl0&s=N4SpZopuJk4pBshNBjJ0lqMSluHaUebE_UPj384Uje4&e=>.


The course is designed to basically follow Peter Corke's textbook "Robotics, Vision & Control". Course material covers the basic concepts, including coordinate transformations, kinematics, pose and orientation, navigation, sensors, path planning, and actuators. Theory is demonstrated in the context of mobile robots with hands-on applications of both MatLab and ROS on a Turtlebot robotic platform.


For questions on eligibility, and registration, please contact USAC <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__usac.edu_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vW_jOw7cbmiOocsrHYRKTbnXcqSEOUszUL4xQ31cLl0&s=05mPKkEZ9_ytKpdXGaAyNvOUQj6541p-VivEOFUiFPo&e=>.
