Control of Mobile Robots
FREE
Control of Mobile Robots is a course that focuses on the application of modern control theory to the problem of making robots move around in safe and effective ways. The structure of this class is somewhat unusual since it involves many moving parts – to do robotics right, one has to go from basic theory all the way to an actual robot moving around in the real world, which is the challenge we have set out to address through the different pieces in the course. The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the nation’s top research universities, distinguished by its commitment to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology. Georgia Tech’s campus occupies 400 acres in the heart of the city of Atlanta, where more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students receive a focused, technologically based education.

Prof. Magnus provides the essence of the course content very well. I hope there will be future courses related to the topic

Detailed in simple terms.

The course was very great.
Xiaohong D –
This is about control of wheeled robots. So it’s not that complex as legged robots. It is also highly related to autonomous driving. For the above reasons it is a very good course for beginners who want to get some understanding of this field or for people on perception side to learn some basic control theory to be able to do their jobs better.

Very well designed course. The chronological order of topics covered facilitates easy learning. Professor Egerstedt is precise and descriptive. The practical videos of different robots scattered in the middle of different important conceptual topics assists in the understanding of these topics. The glue lectures provide important clarity of ideas and derivations before the quiz. Great Job by the entire team. Thank you Professor Egerstedt for this wonderful course for someone looking to hone their ideas of control systems with application to robotics this course was a lot of fun.

A Nice course to provide an overview of the Mobile Robots and Control. The course is structured very well and builds on each module.
Zain U A –
I really like this course as i invigorated my interest towards the real implementation of robotics.
Bianca D T –
I absolutely loved this course. It tackles a difficult, tedious subject and yet it always had me eager to return to the lectures. I loved the concept, the approaches (you have theory, explained thoroughly; there’s glue lectures at the end, revisiting the entire week of course and covering concepts more in depth; there’s weekly programming assignments to also learn the hands on implementation in MATLAB). The teaching is enthusiastic, fun and light hearted, very enjoyable, from all the speakers involved. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and I’d love to see more from the same team, it’s been a real pleasure.

I am highly obliged to study such kind, of course, related to control systems of robotics. It would be great if we could have an indepth understanding of the mathematics involved in controls. For example, In control theory and stability theory, root locus analysis is a graphical method for examining how the roots of a system change with variation of a certain system parameter, commonly a gain within a feedback system.

I am a student of automation engineering at the last year of his bachelor degree. I took this course to discover wheater to choose the world of mobile robots as my MSc main field of study. I am totally satisfied with it. As soon as I finish my exams I will revise my notes and complete the simulation material to try how to put theory into practice by myself.
Gilberto S –
Excelente!

I am very happy because i watched this course. i am learning very important information , but in matlab you have to explain more. thank for every one for his efforts .
Antonio E A A –
I nice and very objective course, it gives an insight about the theory to control mobile robots. I recommend this course for everyone who wants to immerse in this field.
Liam N –
Very theoretical/math based; an amazing course! Thoroughly enjoyed learning the basics of control theory and how it can be applied to classical robot navigation problems.
Balaji S –
The course was really awesome. It really helps me to get strong with the concepts of control system design for mobile robots
Frederik R –
A very nice introduction to the control of mobile robots. During the course you have the chance to build your own robot and run your algorithms on it, which you will program in Matlab (you will get a free version of it during the course period). Dr. Egerstedt is a very approachable and motivating lecturer who has an intuitive way to explain things and listening to him makes the already exciting topic even more interesting. Highly recommend!
Piyush N S –
I find myself fortunate to come across this course and i got through the entire course is a proof that the curriculum designed and teaching was outstanding. Things i learnt here helped my to convert my interest in robotics into a career choice. I now look forward to get a masters degree in one of the related disciplines.

Un cours tres bien concu.
Dat N –
I really like this course and I think I have learned quite a lot about control of mobile robots from this course. The instructor teaches everything slowly in an informal style which makes it easy to apprehend the lectures. I also appreciate the glue lectures taught by grad students which reviews the concepts learned that week and also gives more examples to demonstrate things. The programming assignments are fun and doable and most importantly they help me apply the theory I learned in code and watching the robot running is a very satisfying experience.
Dickwella W K N –
This course is great since it gives a good understanding about control of mobile robots balancing both theoretical and practical considerations in control methods. Prof. Magnus is great and his lectures are always enjoyable.

Dr Egerstedt’s presentation style is very accessible and engaging. I enjoyed the course. This course is the equivalent of a basic introduction. It doesn’t make you an expert. But it gives you the tools to go forward. The math expects you have some basic calculus, physics and linear algebra. Most of the math you actually have to do is simple linear algebra. The course provides a student license for Matlab which does the heavy lifting. The optional programming assignments (in matlab) are fun and not too difficult. When I took the course the programming assignments weren’t graded, which is either a plus or minus depending on how you feel about it. I was happy with getting them to work without the pressure of being graded. My only complaint is that I took the course in 1st quarter 2020 and apparently there were no staff assigned to answer questions in the discussion forums. This course would be a good springboard to the U or Toronto Self Driving Car curriculum offered by Coursera. that course goes into a bit more depth.

It helped me what is robot and understand the complexity by controle them. Useful course must attempt by every one.
Nimantha P D –
This course is amazing. The teaching technique is the thing I’m love the most about this course. It is so interactive and the teachers explains everything with so many good examples. It goes smoothly starting from simple theories up to more advanced ones. It is so fantastic how intuition is given to the students. I gained so much from this course which will be so much important for my practical stuff like building mobile robots and theoretical stuff like designing new control systems.
Pranesh G –
gives a very good intro to the field of control of mobile robots. This is an excellent course for beginners in mobile robots and control
