Skip to 0 minutes and 4 secondsThe world is going to need a lot of people who understand robotics. Are you up for that challenge? The robotics industry is going through explosive growth at the moment. As the capability of robots increases, we’re going to see them play a more and more important part in all of our lives. If you love figuring out how things work, then you’ll enjoy learning the mathematics behind how robots move. Try out your programming skills in practical MATLAB assignments, and program your robot to do a useful task. My name is Professor Peter Corke, join me in the exciting challenge of making robots move.
What topics will you cover?
