MEAM 620 is a graduate-level course for students interested in robotics research. The class will mainly address motion planning, control, and vision for mobile robots. The goal of the class is to expose students to the mathematical foundations of planning, control, and vision, and train them to develop real-time planning and control software modules for robotic systems.

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 is individual; projects will be performed partially individually and partially in groups. Students are expected to be highly motivated and conduct high quality project work that results in a conference-paper quality final report.
