Autonomous Mobile Robots

Roland Siegwart, Margarita Chli, Marco Hutter, Davide Scaramuzza, Martin Rufli, ETHx

Basic concepts and algorithms for locomotion, perception, and intelligent navigation.

Robots are rapidly evolving from factory workhorses, which are physically bound to their work-cells, to increasingly complex machines capable of performing challenging tasks in our daily environment. The objective of this course is to provide the basic concepts and algorithms required to develop mobile robots that act autonomously in complex environments. The main emphasis is put on mobile robot locomotion and kinematics, environment perception, probabilistic map based localization and mapping, and motion planning. The lectures and exercises of this course introduce several types of robots such as wheeled robots, legged robots and drones.

This lecture closely follows the textbook Introduction to Autonomous Mobile Robots by Roland Siegwart, Illah Nourbakhsh, Davide Scaramuzza, The MIT Press, second edition 2011.

What will you learn

  • Be able to describe the basic concepts and algorithms required for mobile robot locomotion, environment perception, probabilistic map based localization and mapping, and motion planning
  • Be able to apply these concepts for the design and implementation of autonomous mobile robots acting in complex environment
