Professor Guangming XIE, College of Engineering, Peking University

Robotics: Programming and Practice (3 Credits)
Class: 1-4 PM, M-F, July 2–20, 2018
This is an introductory course to expose students to the theory and practice of robotics. In the course project, students construct and program a simple robot to interact with its environment and perform basic tasks involving motion, sensory data and decision-making. The course is divided into three parts. The first part is a brief introduction of robotics, including history and current developments. Students carryout experiments with a fish-like robot and a somatosensory control of humanoid robot developed by the in-house team. The second part is concerned with programming practice with various types of hardware for robot, including switch, LED light, buzzer, senor and actuator. The last part is concerned with robotic design and construction, and innovative application demo. Students are required to build a simple robot aimed at solving some real problems.
Suitable for All Undergraduate & Year 1 graduate students
