Current Teaching Activities

  • Autonomous Systems [autumn 2007]. A theoretical introduction course to the field of Autonomous Systems. The course is for third year bachelor students. Topics are (among others): A historic view of robotics, embodied cognition, behavior based robotics, neural networks for robotic control, artificial evolotion for evolving robotic controllers, robotic navigation, and artificial life.

Past Teaching Activities

  • Autonomous Systems [2002-2007]. A theoretical introduction course to the field of Autonomous Systems. The course is for third year bachelor students. Topics are (among others): A historic view of robotics, embodied cognition, behavior based robotics, neural networks for robotic control, artificial evolotion for evolving robotic controllers, robotic navigation, and artificial life.
  • Practicum Autonomous Systems [2002-2005]. A practicum for third year bachelor students. The practicum gives an introduction to working with real robots (Pioneer II and Sony AIBO). In a number of exercises, the students learn to work with and program a control mechanism for the robots using different types of sensors.
  • Robotics [2002-2005]. A practicum for first year master students. In this practicum, the students work on a scientific robotic problem. Examples of projects are: robot navigation, robotic perception, and reinforcement learning. At the end of the course, the students write a scientific paper about their research.
  • Computer Introduction [2003, 2004]. An introduction Linux.
