CS 6751, MAE 6730 Spring 2018

Mobile manipulation is the ability for a robot to interact physically with versatility in the world. As robots become integrated into complex human environments, mobile manipulation is increasingly necessary. Robotic mobile manipulation will enable such applications as personal assistant robots in the home and factory worker in advanced manufacturing. This course covers the fundamental theory, concepts, and systems of mobile manipulation, both software and hardware. It addresses the topics of kinematics, dynamics, controls, grasping, planning, mapping, dealing with uncertainty, and human-robot interaction.
