Introduction to Robotics

339.314 1KV Istenes Block

This course is a KV (combined course consisting of lectures and project work) in which students learn the basic of building and programming simple robots, using the LEGO Mindstorm Invention System.
The lectures present how to start to build and program mobile robots confronting real world robotics problems. The students work in groups of three and they have to build, program, document and present two robot projects. The first project is the creation of a simple line following robot, the second project will be determined during the lectures.
