After a brief introduction to probability theory and computational search strategies, this unit focuses on modeling uncertainty and making robust plans. Robotic applications include mapping an unknown space, determining one's location in a known space, and plotting a route through a maze.
|Topics||Bayes' theorem, search strategies|
Mapping: drive robot around unknown space and make map
Localization: give robot map and ask it to find where it is
Planning: plot a route to a goal in a maze
|Theme||robust design in the face of uncertainty|
