About the Course

This project studies systems of low cost miniature vehicles that use wireless communication on a large scale open source test-bed. The test-bed may be geared with onboard sensors, such as cameras, laser, radar, speed sensors, etc. In this course the student will learn how to design vehicle systems that can move autonomously and/or communicate with other vehicles for coordionating their actions. The student will simulate vehicular systems or construct such systems that are based on miniature vehicle models (robots).

This course setup includes a short sequence of cross-disciplinary lectures that will prepare the students and allow their project groups to share a wider common background. Moreover, the course setup includes weekly presentations of project progress reports in the class room that is followed by a discussion. These discussions, led by an expert in the area, would discuss solutions to problems that students encounter.
