Introduction to Robotics, taught by Professor Peter Corke of Queensland University of Technology, is an introduction to the exciting world of robotics and the mathematics and algorithms that underpin it. The course starts on 15th February 2015 and lasts for a duration of seven weeks. Registration is free.
In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Peter Corke from Queensland University of Technology, about computer vision – the subject of his plenary talk at IROS 2014 (link to slides below). He begins with a brief history of biological vision before discussing some early and more modern implementations of computer vision. Corke also talks about resources for those interested in learning computer vision, including his book, Robotic Vision & Control, and a massively open online course (MOOC) that he plans to release in 2015.
I suggest that our current robotics policy agenda needs to be reformed and better informed. This article provides a review of some recent policy reports and considers the changing shape of 21st century scientific debate.
During her Gnome Outreach Program for Women internship with OSRF, Ana Marian Pedro worked on CloudSim-Ed a prototype for a massive open online robotics course built with Google CourseBuilder. The course offers simulation tasks and challenges created with CloudSim, Gazebo and ROS.
