The subject teaches principles allowing to build robots perceiving surrounding world and activities in it including the abilities to modify it. Various architectures of robots with cognitive abilities and their realizations will be studied. Students will experiment with robots in practical assignments. Studied material is applicable more widely while building intelligent machines.

Course outlines:

1. Robotics, its historic and societal grounding.
2. Robot kinematics.
3. Robot kinematics. Dynamics. Statics.
4. Different robots, their design, sensors and actuators.
5. Architectures of intelligent robots. Feedback.
6. Inertial sensors, GPS, odometry.
7. Additional sensors (senses) for intelligent robotics.
8. Visual servoing.
9. Representing surrounding world of the robot.
10. Planning in robotics. Discrete planning formalism.
11. Planning as sampling in configuration space (C-space). Planning under constraints.
12. Localization and mapping.
13. Humanoid robots.

Exercises outline:

1. Introduction to the laboratory. Homework 1 assignment.
2. Consultations, work with robots.
3. Consultations, work with robots.
4. Consultations, work with robots.
Homework 1 handover.
5. Planning tools. Homework 2 assignment.
6. Experiments with planning tasks.
7. Consultations, work with robots.
8. Written test. Consultations, work with robots.
