Per a report published by Gran View Research the next technological frontier in adaptable robotics is mobile robots. Mobile robots are being applied in areas as agricultural, medical, industrial, space, and defense. For repetition tasks, mobile robots are the perfect platform because of mechanical efficiency. The mobile robots market continues to grow steadily based on a report published by MarketsandMarkets. The mobile robots global market was valued at $4.4Billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $10.6Billion by 2020. The hardware technologies used in mobile robots allow full autonomy using electronic sensors, microcontrollers, and mobile driver circuits. Machine and Deep Learning coding methods enhances full autonomy motion control of mobile robots through predictive and 3D mapping algorithms.
Participants will explore mobile robotics concepts using an off the shelf mobile robot kit and hardware controller in this course. Electronic sensors, motor driver circuits and software coding techniques for object detection and navigation control will be investigated in daily hands-on labs. The Arduino and Raspberry Pi are the primary mobile robot controllers for the course. In addition, other mobile robot platforms and kits will be presented in this course.
