Release Notes

Lectures

The material here has two parts. One is related to Powerpoint files that can easily be adopted for use anywhere. The lectures are organized into sections:
  1. Welcome
  2. Robotics Intro
  3. SW Engineering Basics
  4. MRDS Introduction
  5. Use of simulation as part of prototyping
  6. Use of simulation for system development
  7. Process / System Models
  8. Inter Process Communications
  9. Data Flow Models
  10. Common Control Structures
  11. Hardware Integration Issues
  12. Reference Architectures
  13. Packaging and Deployment of Systems
  14. Integration of legacy code and use of libraries
  15. Systems Evaluation and Benchmarking
  16. Outlook and Summary

The slides has been uploaded over the last 6 months. In addition sample code is available. It has been initially tested in a class with students to ensure a certain level of maturity before it was released to a wider audience. The example application is a small robot navigation system that uses colored blob tracking to perform localization, and planner for estimation of a path to a final destination and a controller for the robot platform. The platform is an abstraction in terms of a differential drive robot. In the sample code this has been tested with a Surveyor SRV-1 robot. Example code to interface to the Surveyor SRV-1 and retrieval of images from the on-board camera can be downloaded from the Source-Code Section.

Reviews for this release

     
To Quote an Irish Proverb: "A field is never ploughed by turning it over in one's mind." Having been considering putting together notes regarding some experience (+20yrs) in the field of Robotics, please let me at least congratulate these efforts. There's no criticism, but mentioned purely as fdbk for author; please: ++links to eg projects; Ack on '2' missing; ++emphasis on later (better) pptx's.
