Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the properties and effects of different sensors and actuators and how these can be modeled in software. Students will learn methods of navigation and mapping for mobile robots and how to use them. Students will be able to construct and program a mobile robot that fulfills a specific task.
