- The course cannot be taken simultaneously with:
- Intelligent robotics (AE3M33IRO)
Autonomous Robotics (BE3M33ARO)
- Department of Cybernetics
The subject teaches principles allowing to build robots perceiving surrounding world and activities in it including the abilities to modify it. Various architectures of robots with cognitive abilities and their realizations will be studied. Students will experiment with robots in practical assignments. Studied material is applicable more widely while building intelligent machines.
