The students will gain insight into robotics and autonomous systems control theory and practice, specifically:
Students successfully completing the module should understand
The aim of this course is to provide the basic theory required for solving control problems in robotics and autonomous systems from a practitioner's point of view.
The course presents theory and methodology for analysis and modelling of systems and signals, and methods for design and synthesis of feedback controllers. Special emphasis is placed on:
- Control of systems with multiple inputs and outputs.
- Fundamental control performance and sensitivity and robustness in feedback systems.
- Synthesis of controllers through optimization.
- Predictive control with constraints.
In all cases, a theoretical treatment in lectures will be accompanied by corresponding practical exercises in either simulation or reality, in which students can exercise their skills.
Method of Instruction
The module is delivered through a combination of lectures and lab classes.
The course has the following assessment components:
- Written Examination (2 hours, 50%);
- Coursework Section (3,000 words and 1,000 lines of code split into weekly milestones, 50%).
To pass this course, students must:
- Obtain an overall pass mark of 50% for all sections combined.
