In this page. Resources for some of my lectures sorted by topics will be shared. Also, some tutorials prepared by my colleagues that help clarify some points described in the lectures are provided as well.
Hope that someone can find them beneficial. =)
Autonomous Systems: The development of Autonomous Systems is booming everywhere around us. The below material is organized in 5 main modules:
Navigation and Path Planning
Sensors and State Estimation
Controllers and Control Architectures
Hope these lectures shed some light on some of these topics.
B) Navigation and Path Planning:
In order for the mobile robot (Autonomous System) to be able to navigate safely in its environment, a path planner is required. Various path planner exist, where each one of them exhibit some pros while it lacks some cons. Lectures and Tutorials related to this topic are provided under this section.
Lecture:Path Planning (01) [with Audio Narration]
Tutorial:Path Planning (02) [Catherine Malak, Dalia Mamdouh and Omar M. Shehata]
C) Sensors and State Estimation:
The development of all mechatronics and Autonomous Systems specifically require the utilization of various sensors. Different sensors are used for different reasons (localization, environment perception, etc.). Sensors are usually characterized by the uncertainty in their provided readings, and thus require different state estimators and filters to be applied. Lectures and Tutorials related to this topic are provided under this section.
