Robotics plays an important role in computing; it's the way in which computers can make a physical difference in the world around them. In this course, we'll apply a research-based approach to robotics, which means that our primary focus will be on understanding and implementing algorithms to solve a variety of robotics problems. We'll look at particular concepts and designs such as hierarchical and reactive architectures, reinforcement learning techniques, and finite state machines. You'll then be implementing those techniques and improving on them with LEGO Mindstorms NXT robots and the leJOS programming environment. The course will feature opportunities for students to work in teams on activities such as getting the robot to explore its world -- by remote control or on its own -- as well as learning how to solve problems for itself. A $500 (included in cost) deposit is due with each general admission application. The remaining balance of $3,100 is due on of before the start of the program. If you are not offered admission into SCSI, the $500 tuition deposit will be returned to you. For accepted students, the tuition deposit is non-refundable. Please see the cancellation policy for further details.
