MEAM 620 is a graduate-level course for students interested in robotics research. The class will mainly address motion planning and control of single and multi-robot systems. The goal of the class is to expose students to the mathematical foundations of planning and control and train them to develop real-time planning and control software modules for robotic systems. We will include applications to mobile ground and aerial robots, articulated robot arms and humanoid robots operating in real-world environments.

The course is designed to balance theory with application. While the class will have no in-class exams, the homework and projects will require significant investment of time and energy. All homework and projects are individual projects. Students are expected to be highly motivated and conduct high quality project work that results in a conference-paper quality final report.
