Courses

Topics in Autonomous Robotics

Students will be introduced to modern approaches in control and design of autonomous robots through lectures and exercises.

Robotics practicals

The goal of this lab series is to practice the various theoretical frameworks acquired in the courses on a variety of robots, ranging from industrial robots to autonomous mobile robots, to robotic devices, all the way to interactive robots.

Aerial robotics

The course provides an introduction to the design, control, and applications of aerial robots. Students will be able to translate theoretical concepts into practice by means of hands-on exercises with simulated drones.

Evolutionary robotics

The course describes theories, methods, and technologies for designing robots and artificial systems inspired by evolution, development, and learning. It also shows how robotic models can help to understand biological systems. The course ends with a discussion of future bio-hybrid robots.
