|Semester||Semester 1 - 20 credits|
Approximately 18 lectures and 24 laboratory sessions
Contact Hours: 42
Artificial Intelligence is concerned with mechanisms for generating intelligent behaviour. When this behaviour occurs in the everyday physical world, with its uncertainty and rapid change, we find that all kinds of new problems and opportunities arise. We will try to understand some of these in the context of robotics. In a series of lectures we will look at some theories of how to sense the real world, and act intelligently in it. In a series of labs you will build your own robots to see how well (or badly) these theories actually work.
On successful completion of this module, the student should be able to:
Sessional: continuous assessment (100%).
Supplementary (where allowed): None; the module may only be repeated.
The continuous assessment consists of a writeup and demonstration of an autonomous robot project designed and constructed by each team.
